<title>Struts Release Plan (Version 1.1-rc1)</title>
<section name="Objective" href="Objective">

<p>The objective of the <strong>Struts 1.1 Release Candidate 1</strong>
release is to create a milestone release in preparation for an imminent
<strong>Struts 1.1 Final</strong> release. As a release candidate, this
milestone release currently contains no known showstoppers.</p>
<section name="The Plan" href="Plan">
<p>A number of bugs have been fixed since the third Beta release of Struts 1.1,
and all remaining bugs have been categorized either as enhancements, or as
problems which can be fixed in a release subsequent to Struts 1.1 Final.
Therefore it is time to make the latest code base available as a first Release
Candidate. The goal is to move towards a final <strong>Struts 1.1</strong>
release as soon as is practicable.</p>
<p>Therefore, the following release plan is proposed for Struts 1.1 Release Candidate 1:
<li><em>Code Freeze / Tag Date</em> - Tuesday, February 18, 2003, 23:59:59</li>
<li><em>Release Manager</em> - Martin Cooper</li>
<li><em>Release Announcement</em> - To the following mailing lists:
<section name="Release Criteria" href="Criteria">
<p>Prior to the release of Struts 1.1 Release Candidate 1, the following
action items must be completed:</p>
<li>The Struts 1.1 Release Notes document shall be updated to describe
substantial changes and improvements since the Struts 1.0.2 release,
along with associated updates to the main Struts Documentation
Application pages describing the new release.</li>
<li>All of the Struts example applications that are included with the release
shall operate successfully in the following servlet containers:
<li><a href="">Tomcat 3.3.1</a></li>
<li><a href="">Tomcat 4.0.6</a></li>
<li><a href="">Tomcat 4.1.18</a></li>
<li>A release vote shall take place on the STRUTS-DEV mailing list to
approve this plan. The release vote MUST pass by "Majority Approval"
of Struts committers.</li>
