1  Version/Release Table

1.1  Versions and Releases

The project uses the terms 'version' and 'release'.
  • A 'version' is seen as a set of planned features. A version is identified by a major and a minor version number.

  • A 'release' is seen in looky project as a kind of version implementation. A release identifier is constructed from the version id by adding an additional number. A release is found as tar ball on sourcefourge release area (e.g. '1.0.1').

    A release id may have an additional character (e.g. '1.0.1c'). Those postings are still of the same release (here '1.0.1'), but this project needed 3 attempts ('a', 'b' and 'c') to do a proper posting ... :-)

To make this even more complex: Each component and each libary has its own revision id. Because we are not using CVS, this revision id is set manually.

1.2  Overview

Please find below the release table of the project planned on 2003-05-18. A blue row indicates the release we are currently working on.

The table does not provide any libs, only programs are show. For each program the revision id and implementation state ((s)table, (a)lpha, (b)eta) is listed.

2  Road Map

2.1  Version 1.0

The version 1.0 will cover a 'controlled setup': this is a system with a looky server, a looky controller, their adminitration interfaces a basic looky cgi client and some additional administration tools.

previous releases

2.1.4  Release 1.0.7 (current)

The release 1.0.7 was published on Sourceforge on 4th of may 2003. It (finally :-) provides a WEB based installation routine based on pkg-by-pkg.

Two new tools have been implemented as required by the wild:
  • looky-killer: a stand alone terminator for all kinds of looky servers.

  • looky-sessioner: a stand alone tool to send no of sessions to the looky balancer (to be used in an environement without controller).
In addition to this, a nasty bug was fixed: this release also accepts 'idle' resources ...

Last but not least a very simple rc script is provided to make looky bootable.

2.1.5  Release 1.0.8 (work)

This release finishes the implementation of the looky controller. The release is published somewhere around 20th May 2003. You will get the following features with this release:

  • Some improvements of the looky controller, probe and controller manager :
    • 'change characteristic and metric': allow the controller to change characteristics and metric online.
    • 'r-type handling': allow controller to enter 'r-phase' == have more session if load is low.
  • 'looky balancer client SQUID'

2.1.6  Release 1.0.9 (open)

This release is open for feature requests. Please post feature requests on sourceforge.

2.2  Version 1.1 (planned)

This planned version adds the observer components to the looky system.

Work will start right after Version 1.0 is finished.
