If you would like a JIRA to be considered for inclusion into Flume 1.4, please mark it as fixVersion = v1.4.0 and mark it as Patch Available, or set it to Type = Bug and Priority = Blocker if you really think it is a critical bug that we cannot release without fixing.
Let's crunch through these patches and come up with an RC next week.
Here is the latest list of open JIRAs that have a chance of making it into v1.4.0:
FLUME-2037 testDataFilesRequiredByBackupNotDeleted is flakey FLUME-1947 ExecSource should optionally block if the channel is full. FLUME-2076 JMX metrics support for HTTP Source FLUME-2005 Minor improvements to Flume assembly config FLUME-1874 Ship with log4j.properties file that has a reliable time based rolling policy FLUME-1285 FileChannel has a dependency on Hadoop IO classes FLUME-2094 Remove the deprecated - Recoverable Memory Channel FLUME-2089 ElasticSearchSink raises YAMLException when event body has unexpected encoding. FLUME-1938 Flume UDP Source for Windows Events being trimmed at \n characters by SyslogUtils.extractEvent() function
I will triage / review / commit these as time permits. If any other committers can pitch in with triage / review I would appreciate it. Please holler if you have any concerns about known issues or anything else.
