As part of our on-going effort to improve the release engineering + process, we have identified several areas that need significant + quality assurance testing during the release candidate phase. + Below, we've listed the changes in &rel; that we feel merit + the most attention due to their involving substantial changes to the + system, or having arrived late in the development cycle leading up + to the release. In general, our goal in the QA process is to + attempt to check a number of things:+ +
To effectively determine this, it's desirable to test the system in + a diverse set of environments, applying a wide set of workloads, + forcing the system to operate both within and outside its normal + specification. Particular focus should often be placed on the + continuing (or new) capability of the system to perform correctly + when used in concert with systems from other vendors.+ +
