Subject RE: [VOTE] Convert RC2 to Beta 5
Date Sun, 08 Jun 2003 22:22:46 GMT
Frankly, since these seem to be problems in the tests and demo
applications, rather than in the base code, I'd be -1 on this.  Going to
a beta 5 seems to me to be a unnecessary step unless the problem is in
the actual core libraries themselves.
