Developer meeting for v0.7

Posted on

With Arbor version v0.6 out, we’ve completed the first of hopefully many 3 month release cycles. We think this first cycle went very well, and in addition to updated Spack and Python packages, it led to even more release automation, so the next cycle should go even smoother.

The next Arbor release, v0.7 is planned in week 18, which is the week of 2 May 2022.

The next developer meeting is planned for 2 March 2022, from 10:00-13:00 CEST. The meeting will be held here; downloadable as ICS file. Any changes to the scheduling of this meeting will be advertised here and through our Gitter.

Like last time, in this meeting, a list of features (see “Next Release” column) is proposed for delivery in the next release. The Developer Meeting is the right place to make your own priorities known, and any filed Issues can be added for inclusion in the next (or later) release. Please do join if you have research that depends on the delivery of features in Arbor, or if you’re interested in Arbor development! If you’d like to bring anything to our attention in the meeting, make sure it’s filed as an issue.

Our Kanban board lets you follow all of this outside of the developer meetings. At a glance you can see what’s cooking in Arbor. We use Github’s Milestone feature to plan Issues for specific releases, so with time, the Milestone overview will give you some insight in what’s planned for and already merged in Arbor.

Hope to see you there!
