Subject Re: Branch merges and 3.0.0-beta1 scope

Hi Andrew

Thanks for update on release plan!

I would like to discuss specifically regarding compatibility of releases.

beta1 release? IIUC, till now all the releases were alpha where
compatibility was not that important. All the public interfaces are
subjected to modifications. Once we release beta, compatibility would be a
During this gap i.e between beta-GA release, should we maintain
compatibility ?
If my understanding is right then TSv2 have to be merged with beta1
release. In TSv2 phase-2, we have compatibility changes from phase-1.

Thanks & Regards
