Subject Re: [DISCUSSION] Upgrading core dependencies
Date Wed, 08 Feb 2017 02:33:58 GMT
I think we can upgrade these bad guys every time when major version changes
and keep the version unchanged during the whole major version,

For the shading things, upgrading between major versions is always painful,
so I think shaded client and shaded server is enough for users? Maybe the
current shaded client and server are not good enough but I think the
approach is acceptable.

And one more thing is that, we need to make sure that we do not leak any
classes from these dependencies out in our public API.
