We decided to go ahead and push Beta 2 even though the foundation has ignored all of our approval requests for the 180branch. We did pick up the new JEP and the fix for large downloads on a mini-branch.
I'm expecting that all the reports for this beta go smoothly (we haven't had many issues with recent nightlies) and we can push 1.0 final in mid-January. We've been holding out way too long (partially our damage, partially waiting for MoFo to figure out their branch strategy) and we need to put this to bed and move forward. The only way to get to 1.1 is to ship 1.0. Holding it forever benefits no one.Posted by pinkerton at December 29, 2005 5:43 PM
