Subject Re: [s2] Test build of 2.1.1 available
Date Fri, 18 Apr 2008 11:51:35 GMT

Like you I am a pure 2.x developer these days, and I would have absolutely 
no problem with the S1 plugin being spun off into a separate project, but as 
things are I couldn't vote for it being anything more than a test build 
because we are shipping something we know doesn't work with the latest 
version of one of our own products.

As I see it this would be like Apple making and releasing a new Speaker 
System today that wouldn't work with the iPod touch, or Microsoft releasing 
a new version of Office which isn't compatible with Vista, whilst it's true 
that a majority of people may not care, we know there will be those who do, 
and therefore we are knowingly releasing a product which won't work when 
people follow our own advise on setting up S1 projects.

If this were any other problem then it wouldn't be such a big problem for me 
(e.g. I would still like the dojo plugin to be up to dojo 1.0 or spun off 
before a GA release, but we don't tell people to use the latest version of 
Dojo), but as the problems are purely of our own making then I believe we 
have an obligation to sort them out before saying this is anything more than 
a test release.
