Subject Re: [OT] 5.0.18
Date Wed, 21 Jan 2004 17:25:02 GMT
Its called alpha since it was tagged and not voted on. But if you look in the 
tomcat-dev archives, there was a recent vote as to the qaulity of 5.0.18 and 
the vote so far seems to be stable. So enough committers have voted to say 
5.0.18 is stable to say its "stable". But no lines of code changed, some 
people just voted and said - "Sure - I think its stable" Unless something has 
been caught recently, Remy will probably send an announcement in the next few
