as there has been some confusion about release dates lately, I'd like to
give you a quick overview of what to expect in the coming weeks:
- feature freeze next weekend and release of xine 0.9.5
I intend to create a stable branch in CVS at that point and
that stable branch will only receive bug fixes - no new features
- weekly releases from the stable branch
for approx. 4 weeks (maybe longer) I hope we'll be doing mainly testing
and bugfixes in preparation of the big 1.0 release of xine.
I'll release snapshots of the stable branch approx. once a week, these
release candidates will be called xine 0.99.0, 0.99.1, 0.99.2 ...
- external projects like kxine, the browser plugin or the gnome frontend
are not affected by the feature freeze. The current CVS branch is also
not affected by the feature freeze although developers are urged to
concentrate on bugfixes, profiling and testing rather than adding
new features until 1.0 is released.
- I think both branches will continue to exist after the 1.0 release,
so we'll have a stable xine 1.0.x series and a developement
xine 1.1.x series.
time is a funny concept
