Subject [ANN] Branched; freeze in effect
Date Mon, 11 Apr 2011 05:05:30 GMT

Ladies and Gents, pursuant with The Plan[1], we have branched[2] and a
freeze is now in effect.

First and foremost this means no new features[3].  The idea is to
release in 4 weeks, which will be here before you know it.  We need the
bug count to trend downward, which will be difficult enough without
feature/scope-creep.

We also need to maintain compatibility. I believe it is very important
that we set this expectation for our betas. If users feel certain that
each is unarguably more release-ready than the last, and that it is
reasonably straightforward to upgrade from one to the next, (including
the final), then we should see more serious testing during these
periods.

The upshots are that anything you didn't get in only needs to wait ~4
months, and trunk is still open for business (so go nuts).

I'd like to get going on the first beta as soon as possible, (this week
would be great).  If you know of issues that should be dealt with before
that happens, please let me know.

Thanks everyone!
