New Release Candidate 5 (RC5) coming soon

The upcoming Release Candidate of LSO Sonata SDK (RC5) is now scheduled for the 31st July 2020.

RC5 was originally planned for May, then for June. The reason the delay until end of July is to ensure that RC5 contains important updates from R4 which include:

  • MEF W87 - LSO Sonata Developer Guide for Product Offering Qualification + API specification update

The first of a series of developer guides that explain the details of MEF API usage, process flows and the pattern resulting from the combining of the TMF-based envelope with Product Specifications. It comes with the update of POQ API Specification.

  • Product Specification for Access E-Line (schema part which is extracted from MEF W106 currently under development)
  • Update of all of LSO Sonata APIs:
    • Use of TM Forum tooling based on Domain Context Specialisation rules to ensure alignment with TM Forum APIs (see MEF-TMF-ONAP-Collaboration)
    • Introduction of envelope-payload and product characteristic patterns as described in MEF W87
    • Bug fixes and improvements

Note that the MEF membership will be holding an additional working session dedicated to LSO Sonata SDK R5 during the MEF Interim Meeting on 20-23 July. All members are encouraged to participate.

Please refer to the LSO Sonata SDK Release Candidate 5 (Planned) to see more details of the coverage map and list of deliverables.

Please refer to LSO SDKs - Type of Release to see what a Release Candidate is in comparison to the Release.
