Subject Re: Synapse 2.0 ??

Hi Eric,

First of all, if you see my second mail that I fired few minutes before...
you will realize one of the ideas behind going for a 2.0. Since the XML
Schema compliance will make some changes to the configuration language.

We can do a 1.3 from the branch, but we cannot just dump the release, we
need to complete documentation, do testing and so forth, which will result
in more work. Having the above said features on the trunk and the schema
compliance sort of changes planned to go into the trunk. I don't like to
waste time on those aspects on 1.3 branch.

I am about to send a release plan, it will at least take another month for
the 2.0 release, but will be much more effective the time than spending
another 2 weeks and doing a 1.3 release, with lesser features than trunk.

I agree the 1.3 release has been dragging which is main reason for this
strategy, but I could guarantee that the same thing wont happen for the 2.0

Being said all that, if the user community is really interested in the 1.3
we could of course go for it before 2.0.
