Subject Re: 4.0.ALPHA vs 4.0 branch/trunk - what is best for upgrade?
Date Sun, 15 Jul 2012 16:02:23 GMT
Anything currently in the trunk will most probably be in the BETA and
in the eventual release. So I'd go with the trunk code. It'll always
be closer to the actual release than ALPHA or BETA....

I know there've been some changes recently around, exactly
the "collection" name. In fact there's a discussion about
rearranging the whole example directory....
