Phenomenal job on HSQLDB 2.3.0 development. This is extraordinarily auspicious as both an achievement for the HSQLDB developers group and an unprecedented opportunity for anyone doing Java-based development. I'm happy to be an active user and supporter of the HSQLDB project.
You guys are awesome.
Apart from the new features, the focus for this release was better optimisation, fixing any regressions and improving overall quality. Code reviews and quality assurance took a lot of work, which meant the release has taken 10 months to come out.
> The Final release will happen within a week.
Can you give us a more accurate release date?
P.S. a "S" is missing in a headline at your homepage (http://hsqldb.org) cf. "ourceForge Project of the Month January 2012"
No firm release date, but it should be very soon.
