Roadmap: Coding

  • S2_6 branched 02-Jan-15: GNATASK#7804
  • S2_6 datafile formats frozen 12-Mar-16: GNATASK#7814
  • S2_6 network protocol frozen 15-Aug-16: GNATASK#7924
  • 2.6.0-beta1 released 16-Sep-17
  • 2.6.0 final released 21-Jul-18

As 2.6 is expected to be last 2.x release, there's a chance that we end up maintaining it longer than most branches. Version number bump to 3.0 permits us to make bigger changes than usual, and some users may cannot or do not want to follow immediately but keep on living with 2.6.

Next Milestone Edit

Next milestone is 2.6.1.

April/May 2017 we moved from gna.org to hostedredmine, and ticket counts between the two systems are not comparable.

Ticket count history toward datafile format freeze Edit

I went through all the tickets in our database 21-Jan-16, so there should not be any tickets without target when the correct target is 2.6.

Features in Development Edit

Worker task setting from client

gtk3- and Qt-clients have working implementation. Getting this to work in sdl-clients would be nice-to-have feature.

Policies (Multipliers)

Server side and gtk- and Qt-clients are in what we believe to be their final 2.6 form in respect to policies. Sdl-clients GNAPATCH#5066 lack it.
AI can adjust policies.

Help System Updates for 2.6 (GNAPATCH#4872)

Documentation updates for 2.6 (Feature #698197)

Memory leak fixes

2.6.0 should be valgrind-clean what comes to server side.
Server side autogames are practically clean now. There's just some readline related suppressions to add.
Client-side work ongoing.

AI fixing

Problems are debugged in master with better utilities, fixes backported to S2_6
