Subject RE: Release Plans (was RE: New Components From Avalon Scratchpad)

Ah, sorry, now I see what you mean!

No, the warning is absolutely obsolete and shouldn't be in the
distribution! Cocoon 2.0 is not alpha, it is a final stable release.

Thanks for reporting this!
(Argh, how did that WARNING come into the dist? I thought it was
removed beforehand!)

Regards,
Carsten
