Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Release plan

2.10
==== 2.10 ====
* aircraft packages should be prepared prior to the official release date: "For the 2.8 release I didn't start making aircraft download packages (or uploading them to the ftp servers) until after the official release date which was a mistake" [http://www.mail-archive.com/flightgear-devel@lists.sourceforge.net/msg39227.html]
* RC's should probably be built with [[Built-in Profiler]] support enabled [http://flightgear.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=68&t=18839&p=175689#p175689].
* {{Thumbs up}} Walking through the list of "lessons learned" as part of the "Upcoming release" announcement was useful [http://www.mail-archive.com/flightgear-devel@lists.sourceforge.net/msg38749.html]
* {{Thumbs up}} Posting the link to the changelog for the upcoming release helped writing the changelog early, this should also be done for the [[Hardware Recommendations]] and [[Notebooks known to run FlightGear]] pages probably?
* The main area to improve is to distribute release candidates for all platforms earlier - preferably starting immediately after the freeze. That would already give us more time for testing - without extending the actual freeze period.[http://www.mail-archive.com/flightgear-devel@lists.sourceforge.net/msg38765.html]
* How about having a test run a week or two in advance, just to make sure we can indeed produce release installers for Win+Mac - and then release the first RC on December 17th/18th or 19th [http://www.mail-archive.com/flightgear-devel@lists.sourceforge.net/msg38765.html]

** When releasing RC's do not limit them to Win/Mac binaries, but also create source snapshots so that distros can already work on the next package versions.
** For RC's it might make sense to distribute binaries with debugging symbols included, so that people can more easily provide useful bug reports, or even backtraces.
