Hi all,

Been away for some time being very busy...

IMHO, "Release early, release often" should absolutely be our rule
As previously said MINA 2.0 as been longly awaited so i'd vote to release it as soon as possible
removing all big changes maybe also being light on documenting parts we know would change
(perhaps these docs can be fixed along the way trying to understand what has been done internally)

We should fix the basic issues and keep the new ideas for an implementation in MINA 3.0.

One other thing i though we should improve is redesign internals to
better handle handshake processes i.e without having to hack to buffer writes during handshakes
or prevent events like SESSION_OPENED from going down the chain while handshake has not 
finished by providing some kind of control on these.

Hope these lines put some light on the way
 Cordialement, Regards,
-Edouard De Oliveira-

I agree completely with all of Niklas's comments.
