[DISCUSS] JanusGraph 0.6.0 release

Oleksandr Porunov

Hi everyone,

I would like to start a discussion about JanusGraph 0.6.0 release. There were multiple requests from the community about ETA of 0.6.0 release.
I wanted to check if there are any features / bugfixes which we want to include into 0.6.0 release?
Right now we have the next PRs / issues targeted 0.6.0 release:
Reduce configuration options for CFG - will check soon.
Bump bigtable-hbase-2.x-shaded from 1.16.0 to 1.19.0 - this is just a version bump, but I didn't test JanusGraph compatibility with Bigtable.
Add exprimental support for java 11 - This PR adds experimental support for Java 11, but looks like many tests won't work with Java 11. So it's hard to say if JanusGraph will be compatible with Java 11 when used with Hbase for example or different settings. Also, it's hard to say about relation between TinkerPop and JanusGraph regarding this matter. TinkerPop added Java 11 support to 3.5.0 version, but this version isn't released yet. I guess this might influence some TinkerPop tests and functionality, but I didn't check that yet.
Graph Reindexing Issue Fix - this PR is still under review.
Add job to run all TinkerPop tests on schedule - I think this issue isn't hard to be resolved, so I think we can resolve it. Nevertheless it shouldn't block 0.6.0 release anyhow because we run TinkerPop tests before the release.

Are there any other work we need to add to 0.6.0 version?
From my point of view, I think we can release 0.6.0 version after the above issues / PRs are resolved or re-targeted. That said, if I miss something, please, add relevant issues / PRs to the milestone or discuss it in this thread.

Best regards,
Oleksandr Porunov
