Subject Re: Next Release? What about next release version number?
Date Thu, 08 Jan 2004 17:37:52 GMT
Oh no, here we go again :)

I agree that 2.1 is probably no longer applicable given the number of 
API and other changes that are occurring.  3.0 sounds like the logical 
next step.  While I think this gives us some license to change a few 
major things, I do not think we should go off the deep end.
