7. Product Feature Issues

This section is a discussion for product feature issues. There is also a change review board which meets to discuss and approve changes from the published design specs.

Resolved:

Installation issues resolved and will be documented [Suketu]

MFC questions

We will find and ship the latest DLL

We will keep local copy/s of dll

We will not install local copy of DLL if user has more recent version

For client-only installation, we will move MFC dll, optional dlls to disk 2

Graphics/Charting features will be included in initial release and previewed at Networld + Interop Demo

We will add LSP functionality for better winsock 2 support.

QA will burn test/gold CDs from Engineering image.

Bitmap names for popapps need extension change.

Action Items:

8. Benchmarks

Short Description:

Baseline performance measurements are needed to ensure that our software maintains a high level of performance from version to version.

Benchmarks may be of two types:

Relative to baseline (no Centricity software installed.)

Marketing suggests that aggregate system performance be within 1-2% of baseline performance

Relative to previous version.

Resolved:

Benchmarks defined in PRD Addendum 1

Ganymede may be a good benchmark package. We have some experience with their products, and they are a respected name.

Action Item/s:

Specify required analysis reporting [Rick]

Complete initial testing by RC6. Jim to distribute results to Marketing[Jim]

Benchmarking to become part of system testing. [Jim]

9. 3rd party compatibility

Short Description:

Compatibility must be demonstrated and documented for a wide variety of software and hardware applications.

Applications

The prioritized list can be found below:

Here's the early minimal list of show-stopper candidates

(i.e., if we don't control these, we don't ship):
