New Item for March

  • We will be including a modified Fx installer as part of Funnelcake07
  • Project wiki is here:
  • Rob Strong will be landing the change permanently and have it triggered by the existence of funnelcake. So after it lands, nothing additional needs to be done but the current existing work of repackaging with funnelcake."
  • We'll need to do some testing of the modified installer and feedback form before we can ship Funnelcake07
  • All of the above steps have been completed
