Version 2 Milestones

From OpenLP

Introduction

This is a brief summary of which features we plan to work on, and when we aim to do them. This list is not set in stone - dates may change. Things may happen sooner if we get more developers or the existing ones drink more coffee; things may happen later if some developers' wives want them to play a more active role in the family.

Features may also move to different milestones, get dropped altogether if they prove too difficult, or features added if new developers come on board with the relevant skill sets. Where an item in the list below has a line through it, it means it has either been moved to a later milestone, or dropped from V2.

Therefore please don't get too upset if the following list and reality don't agree. Remember the developers are working for free in whatever spare time they get once they've completed their family, work and church commitments!

Note: If an item appears scratched out, that usually just means it has been postponed to the next release.

All outstanding bugs.

Important notes

  1. You should run Tools -> Re-index Songs after upgrading. (This should happen when running the first time wizard.)
  2. You must not use Service Order files which have been created with older versions.
    1. This is due to changed made to "Verse Tags". (Image of songs from old service file in the slide controller [1])
    2. And changes made to the OpenLyrics implementation. (E. g. the "Theme" of Songs from old service files might be imported as "Topic".)
    3. Using old service files might lead to song duplication if a song has a alternate title and the service file has been created with a nightly build (it seems that this does not occur when updating from 1.9.4).

Version 1.9.6 (beta 2)

Released: 26 June 2011

  1. GUI Improvements:

But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
