Subject RE: Commons Net 1.4.x Service Release?
Date Wed, 19 Sep 2007 09:48:09 GMT
Hello Rory, 

Thanks very much for offering help with a Commons Net 1.4.x release! 
We've been in contact with the original submitter of these fixes,
and he's been using these successfully forr over a year now.

We've also applied the fixes to a local test version, and cannot
see the deadlock any more so we are confident that it fixes the
issue indeed.

Subject: Re: Commons Net 1.4.x Service Release?

Hi Martin (and anyone else who may have commented on this topic)

I have been working on and off (not so much recently due to lack of
time) on a release for commons-net. I was planning to make a 2.0 release
and not specifically release from the 1.4 branch, however, it looks like
this may now be necessary. I dont have a lot of time at the moment (in
fact I had planned an initial 2.0 release for a few months ago

It may be possible to do a 1.4.x release before 2.0 - this is probably
what you will want, as 2.0 will work on a 1.5+ JVM only. Before we look
at this however, are you sure that these bug fixes you list below fix
the errors you are seeing? Have you verified with a suitable source
build or nightly?
