Subject Re: [bcel] Next release
Date Fri, 30 May 2014 17:44:17 GMT
Hi Dan,

The only obstacle is finding the time... which I have in short supply ATM.

I hope we can step up and provide a new release though.

I have seen some commits recently fly by...

Can you look at what is in trunk and see what is missing for you?

If there specific features that are missing, one or more Jira tickets would
help.

Thank you,
Gary
