RetroFE 0.8.0 - Release Candidate 1
« on: April 02, 2017, 09:23:54 AM »
Due to the recent issues I've made RetroFE 0.8.0 - Release Candidate 1 available from the Download page. Please have a look, test it, and let me know if there are any issues. :) It doesn't contain any major feature improvements over 0.7.20; mainly some bug fixes and improvements. Once 0.8.0 is properly tested I'll release it, and from there 0.x.0 will be the full releases, with 0.x.y being incremental improvements and feature enhancements.

Next steps:
- Properly test the release candidates for 0.8.0.
- Release 0.8.0.
- Add wiki documentation rather than the current PDF file.
- Provide story files and other system files via separate downloads. I considered adding it all to the full release, but there'd be a lot of material there that many people may have no need for, so I decided against it.
- Update the website; ryuuji has been working on an intro video and new website code that I could use.
- Add all feature requests as bug reports to bit bucket to better keep track of them.
- Work on new features for 0.8.x.

Is there a link to the bit bucket bugs so one can see if their issue or feature they want is listed?  Thanks for your work!

Question: I've currently included all the layouts in the full release: should I or should I keep it smaller, and let people simply download other layouts from the website?

Sweet thanks I dont see search feature on list with some type of on screen keyboard, would be nice.  I really like how hypersearch worked on my old hyperspin setup.  I sure you will come up with an awesome solution though...  ;)

I'm mostly considering my site's bandwidth bill as well. 😀

Yeah I would just put it all on your own google drive and link to that for all downloads to save on website badwidth.  Its not like you have a huge amount of data.  Let google use their bandwidth and you save $$$ while keeping all the stuff if someone stops sharing

That link was to the old RFE repo, not the current one. I believe Pieter thought you were asking about the format of the issue tracker so he used that as an example. He hasn't added his to-do list to the current RFE repo yet, which I believe is what you were asking.

Any problems with 0.8.0-RC1 yet? I'm doing some clean-up still, but would like to release 0.8.0 officially within a few weeks from now. New features are halted; just bug fixes (if possible) at the moment.

Has anyone used 0.8.0 - RC1 without issues so far? :) I'm trying to get a feeling of where we are with this release.
