2.0 BETA</em>
  +        development phase has been concluded. The number of bugs discovered in the course

  +	<p>Only critical or major bug fixes and javadocs enhancements will be made to the
2.0 
  +        code base in the next few weeks.</p>
   
  -	<p>Now that 2.0 beta 2 has been released initial development for post 2.0 releases

  -        can begin.  A CVS branch of the 2.0 code will be made shortly so that 2.1 development
  -        can begin on the HEAD.</p>
  +	<p>Meanwhile, the HttpClient development team has been busy working on the next
version
  +        of <em>HttpClient</em>. The next version of HttpClient is going  to
build upon the 
  +        foundation laid with <em>HttpClient 2.0</em> while addressing those
 architectural 
  +        shortcomings and flaws identified in the course of 2.0 development. Several well
known 
  +        and much complained about problems cannot be resolved while maintaining complete
2.0 API 
  +        compatibility. The primary objective of the next version is to fix those design
limitations, 
  +        breaking 2.0 API compatibility where absolutely unavoidable, while preserving overall

  +        compatibility with 2.0 use patterns.</p>
  +
  +	<p>Depending upon how drastic those API changes are going to be, the next version
of 
  +         HttpClient will be designated as <tt>2.1</tt>, <tt>2.5</tt>
or <tt>3.0</tt>.
  +         The decision is to be taken before 2.0 final release.</p>
  +
  +	<p>It is important to note that HttpClient CVS HEAD may (and already is) no longer
be 
  +         compatible with 2.0 APIs. We strongly encourage to use <tt>HTTPCLIENT_2_0_BRANCH</tt>
  +         until next version API are stabilized.</p>
