I would like to release 1.2.0 next week. Just giving a heads up to see if
there are any strong objections. I think we should get it out there so we
can move on. It is definitely stable, but of course there will always be
more to do. I am not averse to adding features to a 1.2.1 release.
The plan will be to make the 1.2.x branch and issue the release. I will
post the release to both update sites so that an Eclipse 3.2 user on the
1.0.5 release can get the update and be moved to the new update site.
I will then update trunk to 1.3.0 and we can move on towards the
1.4.0release. At the moment, I am guessing this release will require
1.5 and hopefully be targeted at the same time. There are a lot of
enhancements coming in Subversion that we can leverage in Subclipse to
provide a better product. So I am expecting the 1.4.0 release to come a lot
quicker and likely to require Subversion 1.5. I might even include
hand-made unofficial binaries so that people can test the 1.3.x releases.
There is no time line for 1.5 yet, but I am guessing the branch will be made
in 4-6 weeks with another 4 weeks to get to GA. We can revisit this detail.
I'd also like to see us focus on improving support for multi-project
operations (things like create branch/tag and switch). I am sure other good
ideas will come up.
I think 1.2.0 looks like a real good release, we have been developing it for
so long and using it for so long, I think we forget all of the really nice
improvements that have been made. I'd also like to point out that the
improvements in this release came from a really wide range of contributors,
and I think that is also really great for this project and its future.
Let's keep it up and get rolling again!
