This page is an attempt to document all of the tasks required to release NeoOffice 2.1. This page is by no means comprehensive, but hopefully as we work through the release process, we will leave behind enough details to make future releases simpler and less error prone.

TaskDue DateAssignedStatus

Create NeoOffice-2_1_Early_Access_branch branch from the HEAD branch for NeoOffice 2.1 Early Access so that we can continue to do bug fixes and release Patches while we aer working on this release.

Note: after creating the branch, I invoked the following command in my NeoOffice 2.1 Early Access workspace to ensure that I don't accidently pull NeoOffice 2.1 changes into my build:cvs update -r NeoOffice-2_1_Early_Access_branch

Perform a clean checkout of the HEAD branch and set build to build with a new version and NeoOffice trademarked product name.

This includes the following steps:

  • Perform a clean checkout of the HEAD branch
  • Copy custom.neo.mk file to custom.mk so that the clean checkout will build with the trademarked product name
  • In makefile, change the following macros to the respective values:

    PRODUCT_VERSION=2.1
    PRODUCT_DIR_VERSION=2.1
    PRODUCT_PATCH_VERSION=Patch 0
    PRODUCT_DIR_PATCH_VERSION=Patch-0
    NEO_TAG:=-rHEAD
              
  • In this release, there will not be a patch that upgrades a NeoOffice 2.1 Early Access installation so reduce the size of future patches by removing any libraries other than libvcl*.dylib from the build.patch_package target in the makefile
  • Commit makefile changes and invoke make build.oo_checkout to checkout the OpenOffice.org code
