Subject Re: Switching rhino implementation
Date Mon, 01 Nov 2004 20:29:23 GMT
Is the new implementation compatible (from the user's perspective) with
the old version?  If so, in my opinion you can just switch it now.  If
changes will be required then a notice should go out with 2.1.6 in the
release notes and the switch would occur in 2.1.7.
