Re: JOGL 2.3.3 state of progress
— by Sven Gothel Sven Gothel
Thank you Julien & Everybody,

JogAmp Server Update has been completed as follows:

- Linux Node (AMD) incl JogAmp updated to Debian 9 Stretch.
- Windows Node (NVidia) updated to Windows 10.
- MacOSX Node (Intel) updated to OSX 10.10.X

- Dropped builds and nodes: linux-i586 linux-armv6 windows-i586
                            solaris-i586 solaris-amd64

- Dropped signing

- All nodes currently use either OpenJDK 8 (Linux)
- or Oracle's JDK 8 (Windows + MacOSX).

- Next step would be to use OpenJDK 11 for all platforms,
  is that correct? Or would JDK 9 suffice for now?

- There is currently an aggregated test build
  Erroneously this one is tagged version 2.4.0 .. but maybe we keep it this way,
  will see.

Next Release Work

- Either 2.3.3 or if not binary backwards compatible 2.4.0
- Fix Bugzilla and Wiki entries for this release, i.e. pick bugs/features

My Role until next release

- I can integrate and merge your fixes, you have tested
- I need to complete one new feature in the next days: JavaFX integration

Cheers, Sven
