I've got some emails from folks trying to "squeeze" more features into
this release. Admittedly, some have been sitting in the feature
request system for a long time, I just could not get to them with all
the other workload. Heck, I couldn't get in some of my own feature
requests. The problem is, adding a feature last-minute is not just
copy/pasting code - every addition takes time to review and then,
there are tests on multiple platforms, multiple compilers etc.
If it is of any comfort, we pledge to stick with "release early,
release often" mantra in the future, so please bear with us.

> POCO developers and users:
> 1.5 will be released this week, most likely Tuesday. This will be a
> transitional release, an important milestone on the way toward 1.6 and
> 2.0. All are encouraged to check the trunk out, compile, run tests and
> report any problems.
> We are stil using old trunk:
> An appeal for contributors:
> We appreciate every contribution very much. But, please, please, read
> the Coding Style Guide (
> http://www.appinf.com/download/CppCodingStyleGuide.pdf ) before
> writing code. Please use tabs (not spaces) for indentation - set your
> editor to tabs (of 4-space size) for readability. We throw by value,
> catch by reference. We put one line between member function
> declarations and two lines between definitions, etc. These may seem
> like small and unimportant issues but when one spends hours and days
> fixing them, it becomes a problem. Easier your contribution is to
> integrate, sooner you'll see it released.
> Again, all contributions are welcome and very much appreciated. Keep
> them coming, we need all the help we can get. Help any way you can -
> compile and run test, write howtos, evangelize ... just contribute in
> some way. And if you have submitted a patch which was not applied yet,
> or asked for a feature not implemented, we apologize - there's very
> few of us and we do our best, we'll get to it as soon as we can.
> Thank you all and look out for the next release of POCO - 1.5.
