Hi all,

Liferay has released the third milestone (Milestone 3) build of the next version of Liferay to kick off 2013. This build has a couple of new enhancements to existing features, plus around 250 bugfixes (and most if not all of the bugs found thus far by BugSquad have been fixed!).

This time around we are going to use our existing tools, namely JIRA and the Forums, to report bugs and discuss any usability or feature concerns you may have. Check out the Milestone 3 wiki page to download Milestone 3 and get started! As always, your feedback is always welcome at any time, but if you are going to review M3, be sure to do so within the next 4 weeks, as this will give the engineering team enough time to triage any issues and get them fixed for the next milestone.

Also, you may notice a new JIRA-based tool that we are using at Liferay to track product development. This tool is in the form of a handy plugin for JIRA called JIRA Structure, and allows Liferay to maintain a hierarchical visualization of related tickets (vastly more powerful than simple JIRA Subtasks). We are using this to track feature development by grouping related "Stories" into various buckets. For example, for the Milestone builds, you can see a hierarchical view of all of the Stories implemented for each Milestone (e.g. here are the Stories for Milestone 3). These tickets don't represent anything other than grouping of cross-project tickets (e.g. a structure could contain tickets from the LPS project and the MAVEN project in JIRA). Going forward, this will hopefully give even greater visibility to the inner workings of Liferay's community software development process.

So, check out the Milestone 3 wiki page and get started!

Unfortunately guess I can't collaborate this time again emoticon. Too busy with other projects.

Hope to be back again soon.
