Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Looking to a 2.8.0 release
Date Tue, 21 Apr 2015 23:26:03 GMT
I would also like to support Karthik's proposal on the release thread about
version numbering. 2.7.0 being "alpha" is pretty confusing since all of the
other 2.x releases since GA have been stable. I think users would prefer a
version like "2.8.0-alpha1" instead, which is very clear and similar to
what we did for 2.0 and 2.1. Then we release 2.8.0 when we're actually
stable.

I don't know if it's retroactively possible to do this for 2.7.0, but it's
something to consider for the next 2.7 alpha or beta or whatever.
