Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Artemis 2.0.0 target features
Date Thu, 08 Dec 2016 16:35:46 GMT
I was not implying that the feature parity with ActiveMQ is a marketing 
goal. I just wanted to show a case where typically in companies 
marketing pushes for a major release based on a feature set as they 
think they can sell it better. As an open source project 
ActiveMQ/Artemis has the luxury to not being pushed by marketing.

I currently do not see any bigger breaking API changes but I am not so 
much into the Artemis internals. Until now I was only involved in the 
OSGi support.

I also think it is very good to talk about the upcoming or planned 
features. I would make the list rather small though as in my experience 
the actual features going into the code often differ from the plannings 
as quite many people are involved at apache projects and the amount of 
work they put in often can not be predicted well. So I would only look 
one or two minor versions ahead most of the time.
