I down with the idea of releasing early and releasing often. I'll volunteer to take on the RM role so long as my machines are working :).
ADS 1.5.2 has been released less than one month ago (april, 17th), but I would like to know if releasing a 1.5.3 in the next few weeks could be an option. There are some reasons why I'm suggesting this move :
- 1.5.2 has been released after a long period of heavy refactoring, and a lot of bugs have simply been forwarded. 1.5.3 can be used to fix a bunch of this bugs
- There are some issues with the configuration, and with the way Studio deals with it. As Studio is also planning a 1.2 release (with some great addons!), that could be a good timing for a new ADS version
- A lot of work have been done to increase ADS performance : the current bigbang branch is around 20% faster than the 1.5.2 version (and with a decent Linux kernel, I was able to gain 15% more performance :).
- The closer we get to 2.0, the more often we want to release new versions including some new features. Alex is adding some new Authentication mechanisms into the server, which are good to have.
A reasonnable expectation for a new version should be by end of may, or early in june (roughly).
It's up to you.
