Subject Re: New release
Date Thu, 30 Apr 2015 15:23:18 GMT
I strongly support this! Peter's work needs to get out there and be
battle-proven, and anything that even inches towards River/OSGi harmony
needs to get out there so that people can experiment, build on top of, etc.
Finally - and I may be wrong about this - River 3 will be the first
version that plays well with Java 8? We really want to upgrade our
production systems to Java 8, and one of the blockers is the
(perceived?) notion that River 2.x does not work with Java 8.

It's a bit off-topic, but if I'm wrong about that last part, please let
me know :-)

to push for a new release ASAP. Peter’s done a ton of work, there are improvements needed
to the RMI classloading approach that can help projects out there today that use OSGi, and
we have to do something.

I know there are alot of details with this proposal, and esoteric discussions surrounding
“what are we”, but we either release or die. IMO, its that simple.

for 2.2.2 we can still provide support for it. Release early, release often.
