WiX toolset bug count after May 28th, 2009.

Below you will see an empty box. That is not a mistake. Robert suggested I have a picture of a blue pill there: You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.

Well, the story isn't quite over but we do have zero bugs filed against the WiX toolset for v3.0 now. As noted in previous weeks, we were working towards a lockdown date of the 28th that would punt all bugs that did not block key scenarios to WiX v3.5 or 4.0. Last night was Votive's last night for bugs and the remaining Visual Studio 2005 specific issues were all punted.

Now the Visual Studio test team has offered to do a full test pass over all the key scenarios to help ensure that we haven't regressed anything in the last few weeks. We'll let the whole toolset bake for the month of June. Assuming we don't find anything that causes us to modify any code then we release the final build of WiX v3.0 on July 4th.

So if you don't hear me talking about WiX v3.0 over the next few months that means all is well. What am I going to talk about instead? Not much. I'm busy writing code for WiX v3.5 and I'll talk more about that when it does something useful (right now it's just a bunch of code).

In the meantime, keep coding. You know I am.
