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

This is a list of lessons learned from the previous releases, things that turned out well and should be kept for the next release as well as thing that didn't turn out so well and should be changed for future releases. Ideally, the release plan should be updated and augmented so that the lessons learned are incorporated accordingly.
==== August 2013 ===='''Version numbering:'''{{cquote|There was already a couple of people on IRC confused that 2.12 is different to 2.1.2 (since minor version numbers > 9 are something of a rarity in many people's perception).<ref>{{cite web |url=http://www.mail-archive.com/flightgear-devel@lists.sourceforge.net/msg40339.html|title=<nowiki>Re: [Flightgear-devel] reminder: entering feature freeze now</nowiki>|author=James Turner|date=Mon, 24 Jun 2013 14:15:00 -0700}}</ref>|James Turner}} {{cquote|Give our release pattern is date scheduled, an Ubuntu style numbering scheme would actually make more sense, but a bit more effort to move too.<ref>{{cite web |url=http://www.mail-archive.com/flightgear-devel@lists.sourceforge.net/msg40339.html|title=<nowiki>Re: [Flightgear-devel] reminder: entering feature freeze now</nowiki>|author=James Turner|date=Mon, 24 Jun 2013 14:15:00 -0700}}</ref>|James Turner}} {{cquote|I suggest that we zero-pad the minor release digit after 3.0.0 so we have 3.02, 3.04 etc. to reduce confusion if we reach double digits.<ref>{{cite web |url=http://www.mail-archive.com/flightgear-devel@lists.sourceforge.net/msg40357.html|title=<nowiki>Re: [Flightgear-devel] reminder: entering feature freeze now</nowiki>|author=Stuart Buchanan|date=Tue, 25 Jun 2013 14:48:56 -0700}}</ref>|Stuart Buchanan}} {{cquote|many computer systems sort file names in ascii order, many people don't seem to pay careful attention to where the decimal points are placed, etc. Once we clear past the 2.10, 2.12, etc. series, I'd like to go back to keeping things single digits in the major and minor version numbers and when we run out of a single digits bump up the major number (so 3.8.x -> 4.0.x). Number are numbers, but this one confused a lot more people than I expected it would or should so maybe it's good to be sensitive to that after we clear the 2.x series of versions.<ref>{{cite web |url=http://www.mail-archive.com/flightgear-devel@lists.sourceforge.net/msg40358.html|title=<nowiki>Re: [Flightgear-devel] reminder: entering feature freeze now</nowiki>|author=Curtis Olson|date=Tue, 25 Jun 2013 14:59:08 -0700}}</ref>|Curtis Olson}}
