Subject Re: Commons Net 1.4.x Service Release?
Date Mon, 17 Sep 2007 21:13:18 GMT
Hi Martin (and anyone else who may have commented on this topic)

I have been working on and off (not so much recently due to lack of 
time) on a release for commons-net. I was planning to make
a 2.0 release and not specifically release from the 1.4 branch, however, 
it looks like this may now be necessary. I dont have a lot of time
at the moment (in fact I had planned an initial 2.0 release for a few 
months ago initially).

It may be possible to do a 1.4.x release before 2.0 - this is probably 
what you will want, as 2.0 will work on a 1.5+ JVM only. Before we look at
this however, are you sure that these bug fixes you list below fix the 
errors you are seeing? Have you verified with a suitable source build or
