Notes or issues you'd like people to know about, that don't correspond to a particular release.

Questions and Concerns

Please add any questions or concerns you would like discussed at today's meeting.

  • I suppose it's preferred to upgrade 3.5.10 to 3.6.6, not 3.6.4. There is AFAIK no need to this mid-step.
  • Support update (We don't have metrics and we're sad-made):
    • 3.6.4 top issues were:
      • Hangs caused by too-short timeout on hang detector (fixed in 3.6.6)
      • Hangs at startup/can't load any windows
    • 3.6.6 top issues so far:
      • Firewall/AV complaints (should have mostly cleared up, zzxc?)
      • Proxy complaints
