Yesterday evening the Release Engineering team was done with our release and the build we chose for to be GA release last week.
Software and Documentation are put on our download site , some processes to make the product available for sales and some legal processes are made. This was done with the help from PM and our CM teams during the last 5 days.
The release is now officially available on Knowledge Center for Customers to download buy and install!
We have made enormous efforts during the last year, we did something we had not done before when we created the release 5.6.2 to meet the market demand now rather than wait until 11.0 could be released (which will be in almost a year with current planning). Having two releases running in this way, where one is a major shift in generation of our suite is not an easy task to pull off. It has been challenging but you pulled it off…and on time (in fact even a few days ahead of time).
From a pure project perspective we had 5 scrum teams working in parallel in three countries, added more unit tests and auto tests than ever, did more advanced tests than before, building test benches to test datatransformation as one example. We took input from customers along the way to make sure we were heading in the right direction, we know they like it and have already made the first deal(s) because of it.
A BIG congratulations to you all for this achievement and a wish that you will now have a nice Christmas Vacation and a wish for a great 2015
You are awesome!
