Subject Re: [Lang] Release 1.1? [wasRe: [Lang] Please fix this]
Date Fri, 08 Nov 2002 19:33:34 GMT
StringUtils is binary incompatible with the 1.0 version of StringUtils, so it 
certainly isn't 1.0.1. 

Plus, I've never liked mixing bugfix releases in with new functionality, which 
always imply new bugs. 

If we'd spotted the maximum() bug before release, it would have stopped the 
release. Fixing showstopper bugs is good cause for a bug fix release. And 
it's not that hard:

cvs tag -b -r LANG_1_0 LANG_1_0_BRANCH lang

cvs co -r LANG_1_0_BRANCH -d lang_1_0_branch lang

cd lang_1_0_branch

<apply patch>
ant build
ant test
cvs commit

<edit default.properties to reflect new version number = 1.0.1>
cvs commit

then it's like doing any release. Tag it with LANG_1_0_1.
