  3. 4.4.9 update (tickets) - Petr/Mark- 14:48 UK

    • In the OMERO-4.4.9 milestone there are 57 open tickets and 51 closed tickets.
      • The 11 closed blockers are mostly Insight, and some Scripting and Services.
      • The priorities of the open tickets, largely bugs, are,
        • 11 blockers
        • 33 critical
        • 7 major
        • 6 minor.
    • 4.4.9 also includes progress on an online script repository.
    • All the open tickets are assigned.
      • There are no more than 3 blockers per person.
      • There are no more than 3 critical per person,
        • except that Josh has 10 critical, some Services, and Jean-Marie has 7 critical, all Insight, as well as 3 blockers each and some lower priority tickets.
    • Ticket counts are approximate: they change in real time.
    • Themes of bugs include graphs, permissions, and Ice.
    • When fixing some bugs, extra time will be taken to ensure automated test coverage of the relevant code.
    • How about #10665?
      • Part of some work on rendering settings (cf. publication) (not 4.4.9)
      • Chris: may have already fixed this bug in OMERO 5 (#11427)
    • Josh: will dig through his tickets, some will be too large / dangerous to attempt
    • Josh: SVGRasterizer issue, ticket #11438, Blazej may be able to comment helpfully
      • may relate to older OpenJDK versions
