Subject RE: Commons Net 1.5 / 2.0 Releases
Date Mon, 25 Aug 2008 13:05:45 GMT
Thanks Niklas.

The backward compatibility question you mention was about the
suggestion to refactor the Commons Net "small protocol" 
implementations into separate packages each:

I was not in favor of such a costly, breaking change which
doesn't buy much, so I'd vote for going forward towards
a release. Can you put up a release candidate?
