Subject Re:[net] 1.1 release planning
Date Fri, 01 Aug 2003 11:38:54 GMT
I vote for putting out a 1.1 release too.

During this week I have received a request from a user of TelnetClient who is requesting a
new functionality (notificacion of changes in option state to the application program) that
could be put into 1.1 release.
I have evaluated this enhancement and could release a patch by 10th Aug.

I enclose the request which I received outside the commons-dev distribution list:

We could delay release of 1.1 to include this functional enhancement. What do you think about?
