ns-3.27 release plans for this week

Tom Henderson-2
Hi all, I plan to prepare a release candidate by the end of the week,
and hopefully release ns-3.27 next week.  Please coordinate with me if
you want to prioritize something in the tracker that is not in last call
state already.

Ankit has made a lot of progress in converting our bindings scanning
framework to CastXML, but it is not quite finished, so I intend to make
the release by next week and then update the ns-3.27 release at a later
date.

We have made several merges in the past week or so to try to get to a
release candidate, but the various C++11 features that we are starting
to use have broken the bindings scanning toolchain based on gccxml.  One
patch yesterday broke also the bindings compilation
(https://www.nsnam.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2668).

We are trying to resolve this with some additional changes, but I think
it is most prudent now to hold the release until we have the ability to
scan all modules with the new framework.  Ankit Deepak is working on
this, and we'll try to provide an update in the next day or two.

In the meantime, I am working on patches to these issues:

2733:  IdealWifiManager with multiple spatial streams
2673:  Run-time channel switch for SpectrumWifiPhy

Stefano and Sebastien are also working on some final issues.  If any
other maintainers want to get some additional patches in, please
coordinate with me.

For the moment, users of ns-3-dev should either disable python bindings
or checkout a slightly older revision (e.g. f0b1720f5868) if Python is
needed.

Thanks,
Tom

Hello, here is a brief update on the ns-3.27 release status, also
updated on the wiki page.

I decided to hold this release until we support a new bindings scanning
framework, because we are no longer to get by with gccxml due to C++11
features in our headers.  With Ankit and Gustavo's help, we seem to be
close to this goal now; there are a few loose ends but Ankit has been
able to recently rescan the codebase with CastXML.  See the bug report
for more details (https://www.nsnam.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2451).

In the meantime, progress is still being made on a few fronts.

- Tommaso has been working on DHCP support, and in the course of doing
so, found and fixed a few bugs in the internet module; he asked for
review of DHCP code yesterday

- Stefano has worked on an issue with the base Queue class
(https://www.nsnam.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2751) and seeks comments
on a series of patches that also enhance statistics collection on our queues

- Sebastien is still pushing fixes to wifi bugs as they are ready

I plan to push these patches by the week end, if I do not hear anything from
anybody. By the way, Mohit already had a look at these patches (thank you!).

Thanks,
Stefano
