New Revision: 423519

URL: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?rev=423519&view=rev
Log:
Based on suggestions by Niall Pemberton <niall DOT pemberton AT gmail DOT com>:
 * Home page had obsolete reference to Sep 05 WD
 * Add a "stability" blurb on the versioning scheme (why we've begun at 0.5) in the release
notes as well as on the website

+API STABILITY:
+
+The initial release version number has been chosen to be 0.5 (rather
+than a 1.0). This is meant to better convey the fact that the underlying
+W3C specification is still a Working Draft, and subsequent changes to
+the Draft may warrant changes to portions of the library API. The core
+Commons SCXML APIs (SCXMLDigester, SCXMLExecutor etc.) are stable.
+Portions such as processing of <datamodel> and <invoke> SCXML elements,
+on the other hand, are subject to change as further changes are expected
+in these sections of the W3C Working Draft. See Working Draft for
+details.
+
+
 NEW FEATURES:
 
 This is the first release.
