7/11/2012 Steering Committee Meeting

Topics: Announcements
Jul 12, 2012 at 6:02 PM
The topics were:
  • 1.5 RC: we invite community members to download and try 1.5 RC on their dev machines and report any problems they can find so we can fix them before we ship next Wednesday. The release can be found here: http://orchard.codeplex.com/releases/view/79877. Note that you will need to add a menu widget to your site after navigation. Also, use the navigation part instead of the menu part on your content types.
  • Harvest 2012: the first Orchard conference will happen September 8th and 9th in Santa Monica, CA, USA. Web site for the conference will be available next week. We are close to securing the location, to be confirmed by next week. We have support from Microsoft secured, and Outercurve will very probably help as well. Sébastien to appear on Channel9 to announce the conference and show Orchard.
  • WCF and WebAPI
  • Should we rename the UpgradeTo14 module? Yes, to UpgradeTo15
  • nHibernate 3: it works, but we don't know about Medium Trust yet. If it can't work with MT, should we abandon it? Do we know how many people are running MT?
  • 1.6: should be a quick release with library upgrades (such as nHib 3 and MVC 4) with no breaking changes except Medium Trust and no features.
  • Demo: tables now have alternated colors for better readability. Required labels for required fields.
