[bpftrace] Another release?


Daniel Xu
 

I was thinking about a 0.9.3 release and I noticed we had

https://github.com/iovisor/bpftrace/milestone/6

but it appears neglected.

Any thoughts on punting those issues and cutting a release now anyways?

We've merged a bunch of useful things (BTF, signed ints, int casts, better errors,
etc) since 0.9.2.

And yes, I am volunteering to drive the release.

I'll update the 0.9.3 milestone and create a 0.9.4.

In the future I'll try to keep milestones updated for PRs and issues.

I guess this is also a good time to open the floor for other things that
should go into 0.9.3.

I don't feel strong about the issues on 0.9.3 milestone, we can just
kick them to 0.9.4 if no one objects.

We might want to land this first though:
https://github.com/iovisor/bpftrace/pull/942.

And I'm looking to see if there's anything we can do about
https://github.com/iovisor/bpftrace/issues/940 as well.

I would VERY much like to see a release, because I have bpftrace
scripts that depend on latest git-tree (I think it's the 'int casts'
that I depend on).

My scripts are here:
