                - No further comment from the group.

2.            The group agreed on the following features for the 1.4 Release

                - Driver Trace feature (WPP tracing) - Tom Freeman at hgst
                - WMI commands processing - Tom Freeman at hgst
                - Migrate to VS2013, WDK 8.1 - Tom Freeman at hgst
                - WHQL Certification test - Alex Chang at PMC

3.            Expected release date for 1.4 is Nov 2014

4.            Hot plug (graceful hot add/remove) and hot swap (surprised hot add/remove)
                features were discussed. Austin bolen from Dell said that surprise hot add/remove
                had been in the PCIe standard since version 1.  We should support it in future
                release of the driver.

                We would consider adding hot plug/swap support in future release of the driver.

5.            The group reviewed the bug list / new features per suggestion from Judy @ Samsung.
                - We agreed that everything on the list should be fixed.
                - Need volunteers to work on the fix with the 1.4 release
                - Judy was going to check with her management team if she could submit patches to fix
                  all these problems.
