Quick Updates

Marc Bria: Nothing relevant. On vacations now. Reviewing missing chanins of es_ES and ca_ES translations and dealing with git (looks like is undercontrol now).

Release Progress

  • OJS 2.4.5
  • OMP 1.1.1

PKP Development Sprint

October 1-2, 2014, in Vancouver

Automated Testing (Alec)

Test data specification: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1pW0KgmtcRlmrhjzxNPd9LgqniZQ6M651e5OwXWKUEA8/edit In place for OJS master, ojs-stable-2_4, OMP master, and omp-stabler-1_1

Sample build process: https://travis-ci.org/pkp/ojs/builds/33543721

Current discussion: regression/functional test organization

UI/UX (Kevin)

  • Plugin gallery revisions ready for user testing
  • Work continues on the Copyediting page
    • mockups with "discussion" section have been given an initial user test for first impressions
    • will be finalizing some changes later today, and be ready for further testing
    • looking for volunteers
    • expect this testing to result in further revisions
  • Next step will be to have all UI/UX developments to date included in a prototype and more fully test with users
    • again, this testing will probably result in some changes
    • once those are made, we should be ready for an OJS 3 beta release
  • Hope to have a session on reviewing/revising the OJS reader interface at the sprint.
    • Draw on expertise from ETCL
