Subject Re: Commons Net 1.4.x Service Release?
Date Mon, 04 Feb 2008 23:21:31 GMT
Hi Martin

Sorry for the late reply. It's been a busy year for me, and I am having 
trouble allocating sufficient time to [net] at the moment to close off 
the remaining issues and schedule a release, hence the delay. There seem 
to be a trickle of bug reports, but unfortunately not much manpower 
available to fix them. I was hoping to have a release out long before 
now, but unfortunately this has not been the case. If I can find another 
interested party to assist with a release, then we can potentially get a 
1.4.x and 2.0 release out shortly.

Cheers
Rory
