When is Longhorn reaching GA?


#1

Hi there,

Do you guys have a rough idea when it will reach GA (Q1 2019 perhaps)?

As of now, the https://github.com/rancher/longhorn page says that it is a work in progress and from the https://github.com/rancher/longhorn/wiki/Roadmap I’m not able to “guestimate” a possible time.

I liked the way you conducted the Rancher 2.0 Release Previews and kept us in the loop, is something similar planned for Longhorn?

Thank you very much,
Tanju

Hi @erinmez

We don’t have a date for Longhorn GA yet, since we’re still adding tons of features and stabilize the product.

What we can do right now is to well define our next release target or two, hope that will provide some insight into our development process.

Please take a look at https://github.com/rancher/longhorn/wiki/Longhorn-v0.3 . I’ve added some details there.

We glad you like the way we did Rancher 2.0 Release Preview. Though Rancher 2.0 is much more mature compared to Longhorn at it’s current stage. Do you have anything specific you like for Rancher Release Preview in mind that we can use to help to keep the user informed?

Hi @yasker

Thanks a lot for your update, indeed quite some activity already in v0.3! I especially liked to be able to sit in your online meetups and quickly get up to speed what is new, what has changed etc. between the different stages during the rancher 2.0 development phase (tech preview, beta).

Best regards,
Tanju
