Subject Re: Releasing 1.3.7
Date Fri, 04 Jun 1999 16:51:14 GMT
I think a release is a good idea...

I just question why we're inventing another new numbering scheme...

why not do 1.4b1 and then release 1.4.0 in a month.  I'm serious.   EAPI
is almost a good enough reason on its own... plus the other features we've
snuck in...

after all they're all just numbers ;)
