Subject Re: Time for 1.0

We could go the Microsoft route and call it Apache Cassandra 2011, or the
Ubuntu route and call it Apache Cassandra 11.08 (or whatever month the
release occurs in). The number itself is relatively unimportant.

I believe what Jonathan is proposing is a change to something that implies a
level of stability and production readiness, rather than the 0.x series,
which traditionally denotes software not yet ready for the wider world.

While I generally agree that the next release should be indicated as ready
for the world, I'd like to see the project's documentation updated; even if
it's just a mirror of the Riptano docs. In order to indicate that the
release is ready for the general public we need to have the resources
readily available to help them figure out what Cassandra is and how to use
Cassandra properly.

To summarise: +0.5

Regards,

Nick Telford
