Subject Re: Concerns about releasing 1.5
Date Mon, 27 Feb 2012 14:03:38 GMT
My own personal thoughts on the matter is when you have a public API like
we have with Cordova each release should be as good as the previous
release. That is, all existing features should continue to work. So things
where we are breaking all the plugins or changing the location of the root
file system don't sit well with me. I believe those are decisions that
should be discussed with the community and planned for a release instead of
just appearing in the next release.

Also, get off my lawn.
