What's going on with Mac version?

That's a question we have got a lot of times. It was answered here and in different forums, describing why it take some time to release Mac version so I'm not going to write the reasons again. Today I'm going to show you something behind the scene. We are running Scrum process while developing Java ME SDK. Next two pictures were taken at the end of our latest sprint.

The first pictures shows our office board with table of stories and their tasks. As you can see we finished all tasks.

Taskboard

The second picture is more interesting. It shows burndown chart, which is a is graphical representation of work left to do versus time. The green line represents the ideal burndown. You can see that our progress was under the ideal line. It means that we worked faster and finished our tasks sooner than we expected when planning the sprint. Especially in the beginning the progress was quite rapid so in the middle of the sprint we added a few extra stories and we achieved all of them.

Burn down chart

That's what is happening in our team and hopefully answers the title question. Java ME SDK for Mac is in progress and it goes well ... stay tuned – coming soon to a computer near you!

Well, Mac OSX and linux are kind of close relatives...
