Subject Re: Camel 2.5 - Starts to look good for a relese
Date Fri, 27 Aug 2010 15:10:56 GMT

It also looks to me that we have more contributors than in the past (many thanks to our community!)
and I wonder if it wouldn't be a good thing to release more often.
We did some work on speeding up the builds (and we won't stop here :) ), and I am looking
into even faster parallel builds, so the release time is becoming less of an issue.

In the past year and a half or so we had predictable once a quarter releases. The exception
will be this quarter it seems where we'll have two releases.
Camel 2.x doesn't have minor releases (the 3rd digit in the version) and I would think having
2 releases per quarter (every 6 weeks), one major one minor, would probably be a good thing.
I will start a DISCUSS thread next week, so probably best is to just think about this (for
now) and not hijack this thread.

The 2.5.0 release would also be just in time for the next board report due in Sep.
