2.31 beta testing campaign - your help is needed!

beta-test

(Lars Øverland) #1

Dear all,

We will be running a DHIS 2 beta test campaign for 2.31 release from November 12 to November 23, 2018.

The beta testing campaign is an opportunity for you to preview the very latest features of DHIS 2 while helping us to catch existing features that have been broken (regression) and check that new features are fit for purpose. It’s a big advantage to fix bugs and issues before release, so we hope for your support in testing the release candidate as well as possible.

Participation will be possible by either:

  • Testing directly on our release candidate demo instance(s)
  • Downloading the release candidate war file, or building from the release candidate tag, and running your own instance

Pro tip: With 2.31, we have modified our build process to produce fully deterministic builds. This means that if you build the war file yourself, from the release candidate tag, you will get exactly the same war file that we produce (regardless of when you build it).

The 2.31 final release will be available from November 30 (assuming no critical regression issues remain open at that time).

**Webinar: **Subject to demand, we will kick off the beta testing campaign by holding a webinar with a brief demo of new features on November 12 at around 14:00 CET. We welcome attendance from all of the DHIS2 Experts community.

Please let phil@dhis2.org know if you are interested in the demo, and save the date!

Note that we require a minimum of 10 participants for the webinar so your support is critical!

Further details will be made available on our website at www.dhis2.org/beta_testing in due course.

best regards,

Phil and Lars
