Re: [paho-dev] Eclipse Paho 1.3 Release Plan

Pierre, Roger,

I've always made service releases for individual components whenever they were needed, not having a global Paho release for that. Do you think we particularly need a Paho release as well?

Hi Pierre,

I don't think it is unreasonable to depend on Python 2.7.9 and 3.2.

With regards a service release I think this is a good idea if there
are "enough" bugs that have fixes already made. I think having more
frequent service releases is something we should generally aspire to.

Ian/James - is there any problem with making a Paho 1.2.1 service
release that at least includes the Python client, but that is open to
any of the other clients to join? I agree with Pierre that June is
quite a way off.

Cheers,

Roger

Hello all,

On the Python side, the develop branch that hold new features does include
one breaking change: it requires newer version of Python.

I think the feature added (SNI support) needs to be released and worth a
break change as it is waited by users.

For the details, it will require Python 2.7.9+ or 3.2+ for the TLS/SSL
support (instead of 2.7+/3.0+). Code without TLS are not affected.


Also on the subject of release, the last Python client release is 8 months old and there are few bug fixes that I would like to release before June. For this, we would need to do a service release 1.2.1 that would happen before June.

Does those ideas look good to you ?

Hello all,

you might have seen that we have outlined the next release of Eclipse Paho,
1.3, and aligned it with the next simultaneous release of Eclipse, Oxygen:

     https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/technology.paho

We have had a sequence of Paho releases that have been associated with
Eclipse simultaneous releases, so it seems like a good opportunity to do
this again.   We could have had 1.1.0 associated with Mars but I didn't
realize that they didn't have to be exactly simultaneous at the time.  So we
can release 1.3 before the Oxygen date in June if we choose to.  As always,
there is a month lead up time where the project plan and legal reviews take
place, so the work should be substantially completed in May.

Breaking Changes - Version 2?

Roger asked some time ago whether we could consider a version 2.0 release,
as he had some breaking changes he was considering for the Python client.
James is reviewing a pull request this week for the Java client which could
also result in breaking changes, and it would be good to allow this to
happen for individual Paho applications.  As no-one really takes any notice
of the Paho release number, then it seems to me that the Paho applications
should be able to decide for themselves what their version numbers ought to
be.  So the Python and Java clients could move to 2.0 within the Paho 1.3
release for instance, or release both 2.0 and 1.3 branches.

I'll check with Benjamin to see what he thinks our options are.

Proposed Release Contents

- first formal release of mqtt-spy in Paho (Kamil, I need to speak to you!)
- first formal release of Tomoaki's MQTT-SN gateway
- it would be great to get a release of the C++ client (Frank?)
- updates/fixes to other clients/applications:
     - C client (I have a raft of outstanding work to look at)
     - embedded clients for both MQTT and MQTT-SN
     - Java/Android
     - Python? Go? M2MQTT?

For all committers, please let us know what you would like to include, or
any other suggestions you might have.  James or I will contact you
individually to make sure we know your plans, if you don't get in contact
with us first :-)

Thanks!
