Hi all,

Just so we can keep in line with the target that we had given initially
around dates for the 1.2 release, here's a pseudo-announcement of the
release.

The features that were ready as of the cut-off dates during our planning
period have been tagged and put in this fix version:

https://issues.apache.org/jira/projects/FINERACT/versions/12342856

They include the Swagger API Documentation by Chirag Sanyam and GSIM/GLIM
enhancements by Nikhil.

Apart from small issues or enhancements that I might have missed that are
already complete, for 1.2 we won't be shipping any major work apart from
there.

We're getting our boards configured to visualize the planning for each
release and are now starting the planning for 1.3 so if you have work that
you're planning to contribute, please make sure it has a corresponding JIRA
ticket.

Thanks,

Ed
