#1146 closed task (fixed)

Need to add Release notes for 4.2

Reported by: butler Owned by: butler
Priority: blocker Milestone: SasView 4.2.0
Component: SasView Keywords:
Cc: Work Package: SasView Bug Fixing


In particular add what's new as well as Known issues. As discussed when moving tickets #1086 and #1109 to 4.3 those two issues should be documented under known issues. A quick check of 4.3 tickets might be helpful to add to known issues?

Mostly complete release notes document sent to @butler to finalise.

Will leave this ticket as a blocker for now so no one forgets to upload them! :-)

Have updated \sasview\installers\README-next-release.txt with notes for 4.2.0.

comment:4 Changed 6 years ago by smk78

To do:

  1. In \sasview\installers\ rename README.txt to README-old-release.txt and README-next-release.txt to README.txt.
  1. Go to and create a new release. Paste contents of release notes sent to @butler into it.

NB: Address the questions (search on ???) and edit the Known Issues section in both before making live.

Updated release notes. Addresses #1146

I have just pushed an update to the Release Notes upto & including ticket 1184. Note, Changes section and bullet list of tickets were updated. In my opinion, now ready for release.

Just taken a quick look — two points:

  1. I re-closed ticket 1148 and generated an new ticket for the enhancement you noted. Ticket 1148 was a bug that I only discovered because of a user complaining about being confused … and when I checked they were right: the documentation was wrong (though you could argue that it described the behavior that we may actually want but that is not the current behavior) - so perhaps the correct way to say it is that the documentation was at odds with the code :-) This I think is quite different from the general improvement that all models could use. Because it was an actual bug I think it should be added back to the list of fixed bugs
  2. We should probably not claim as FIXED tickets which were closed as won't fix :-) such as #980, #1103, #1134 (actually listed as invalid) or #1184
  3. #1012 is "ESS GUI not updating after fitting" clearly should be against 5.0 .. the fix is not part of 4.2. I have moved the ticket to 5.0
  4. Not sure it is helpful to list all the admin tasks such as #1133 or #1146, or even for that matter do we want to list things like #1174 or #1133?

Finally I'm not sure we should promise in the release notes that we will fix the marketplace … just in case we are slow … and actually looking at some of them tonight am realizing that maybe we should NOT in fact be changing files people upload as they may be using that as a repo of the code they used in SasView? for their paper. Instead we might make a duplicate that works with the new API?

Replying to @butler in #comment:8

  1. Fine by me!
  2. Ok. Removed.
  3. Agreed. Oddly I found the ticket hadn't been moved to 5.0 so I just did so.
  4. Ok. Removed.

I didn't put that note about updating the marketplace in, it was already in the release notes for 4.1.2!!! But I have now removed it.

Have just pushed the updated RELEASE.txt back to master.
