Doing the maths, the vote was in favor of 1.4. :-D

Seriously, I understand the concerns at that time (9 months ago). The
user's POLL showed that most of them are using 1.4:

I just found 1 vote against and the reasons was not so good to me:

http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=xml-cocoon-users&m=107831280121346&w=2

Because I guess SAP already (or soon will) ship a new version supporting 1.4

I read some time ago, that Sun will not release newer version for 1.3 and
1.4. Maybe that was only a rumor. Not sure, but the problem is that open
bugs in older JVM will remain open forever.

The complexity for us (committers) is a little bit hard: 2 branches:

1-with 3 JVM (1.3, 1.4 and 1.5)
2-with 2 JVM (1.4 and 1.5).

In short 5 compilations of cca. 10 minuts each one to check changes! This
is the current situation. :-(

In any case:

Do you think we need a new vote again? :-)

Best Regards,

Antonio Gallardo.
