Subject Re: purpose of branches\1.2

Are there new features for 1.2 already?

Since it takes a while for us to get releases out, its probably best  
to minimize non-bugfix changes to the branch, though I suppose if its  
a minor improvement that is should be fine, major feature work should  
be avoided (preferring that for 2.0 actually).

During this stabilization of 1.2 I would say that anything outside of  
a bugfix should probably be presented to the list for direction as to  
if it should go into 1.2, wait until 1.2 is out, or just in 2.0.  And  
then lets just take it case by case.  I think its okay for new bits  
to get added to a beta.  And hopefully soon when we get to RCx then  
we will have a faster turn around to get a release out.
