You may have seen a previous mention of the Community BugSquad program in my last Community Roundup. I'm excited to announce that the program has officially kicked off today! The amazing volunteers of this program are contributing their time an expertise to review features in the upcoming Liferay 6.1 release, identify any new or regressed bugs (of course, Liferay is 100% bug-free, but it never hurts to make sure ), and improve their Liferay knowledge in a fun and educational environment. My goal is to do this for every release.
The first phase of the program involves reviewing the new Liferay 6.1 CE Features (such as Staging w/Branching, Personalizable Pages, Dynamic Site Templates, and others), with the goal of identifying any usability gaps, or other issues that would be encountered if this were released as-is, and recording in the form:
The second phase of the program involves downloading and trying our upcoming Release Candidate builds for Liferay 6.1, and finding (but not necessarily fixing) bugs. Again, not that there would be any, but if there are, and they are known about before the final release, they have a good chance of getting fixed! A win-win situation all around, and the team gets some hands-on Liferay experience, and valuable networking with other community members and Liferay staff. If you're interested in participating, just leave a note in the comments below, and you'll be signed up!
