Subject Re: discussion about release frequency.

From a users perspective, I would say that each one of FieldCollapse, AutoSuggest and SpatialSearch
would justify a minor release (once stable).

two" that we should actually have anything remotely resembling a schedule driven by arbitrary
dates. I meant here to suggest a very rough idea of the sort of frequency that I think might
actually work, and to bring up the point that what we might consider minor features can be
viewed by users as major.
