[VOTE] Release Apache Flex SDK 4.16.1 - RC1

piotrz
Hi Folks,

This is a Apache Flex SDK 4.16.1 release candidate 1 Please see the
RELEASE_NOTES and the README.

The release candidate can be found here:
https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/flex/sdk/4.16.1/rc1/

The binary distributions as a convenience for the respective platforms, are
available here:
https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/flex/sdk/4.16.1/rc1/binaries/

The most convenient way to use the binary package is to install it via Ant
or the Installer. To use an Installer you should use Apache Flex SDK
Installer 3.3 RC2:
https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/flex/installer/3.3/rc2/binaries/

Before voting please review the section, 'What are the ASF requirements on
approving a release?', at:
http://www.apache.org/dev/release.html#approving-a-release

At a minimum you would be expected to check that:
    - MD5 and signed packages are correct
    - README, RELEASE_NOTES, NOTICE and LICENSE files are all fine
    - That you can compile from source package
    - That the SDK can be used in your IDE of choice
    - That the SDK can be used to make a mobile, desktop and browser
application

When testing please check the md5 and asc files and make sure that the
source can be compiled.

Please vote to approve this release:
    +1 Approve the release
    -1 Veto the release (please provide specific comments to why)

This vote will be open for 72 hours or until a result can be called.

The vote passes if there is:
    - At least 3 +1 votes from the PMC
    - More positive votes than negative votes

If you find an issue with the release that's a 'show stopper' please don't
hold off voting -1. If someone votes -1 please continue testing as we want
to try and catch as many issues as we can and cut down on the number of
release candidates. Remember existing voters can change their vote during
the voting process.

People who are not in PMC are also encouraged to test out the release and
vote, although their votes will not be binding, they can influence how the
PMC votes.

When voting please indicate what OS, IDE, Flash Player version and AIR
version you tested the SDK with.

Please put all discussion about this release in the DISCUSSION thread not
this VOTE thread.

For your convenience, there issues an Ant script in the RC folder that
automates the checks a voter should perform on the RC.  It will:
    - download the default source package for your OS (use -Dpackage.suffix
to override)
    - run md5 and gpg checks (this assumes you have gpg installed in your
path)\n\
    - uncompress the source package
    - install and run rat
    - display the rat report and ask you to verify
    - display the rat report without the AL files and ask you to verify the
non-AL files
    - display the README and ask you to verify
    - display the RELEASE_NOTES and ask you to verify
    - display the NOTICE and ask you to verify
    - display the LICENSE and ask you to verify
    - run the build and any tests run by the build.


You should be able to go away for a while during the build.  When it is
finished, it will display information to be copied into the vote thread.
You are not required to use this script, and more testing of the packages
and build results are always encouraged.

To use this script (assuming you have Ant installed), it should be as
simple as:
    - Create an empty folder
    - Download ApproveSDK.xml into that folder from:

https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/flex/sdk/4.16.1/rc1/ApproveSDK.xml

    - Run: ant -e -f ApproveSDK.xml -Drelease.version=4.16.1 -Drc=1

Thanks,

I checked the signature, rat report, etc. everything looks good.
But when I try to build the source package, for some reason ant cannot
download the osmf.swc.  Although, I can simply curl the url without any
issues:

This was in powershell.  I had the same exact issue with cmd as well.

I will try again later to see if I have better luck.

Thanks,

Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Flex SDK 4.16.1 - RC1

Justin Mclean-5
Hi,

Tested on OSX.

-1 (binding) as the .tar.gz source release has the wrong line endings. This causes scripts to fail and may cause other issues.

But everything else checked out OK.

I checked:
- signatures and hashes good
- LICENSE and NOTICE good
- All source file have ASF headers
- No unexpected binary files
- Can compile from source (with a little effort)

I tested the SDK using Flash Builder and a few simple application and they worked fine. I didn’t test an AIR application.

I noticed a minor issue in that  the asdocs templates (e.g. [1]) refer to a CC non commercial license [2] probably something that was never removed from the Adobe days. This license is category X and the reference should be removed.

Thanks,
Justin
