Subject Re: Is it time for Retire Apache ODE?
Date Wed, 10 Oct 2018 11:13:23 GMT
Hey Olly,

If I'm not mistaken, there is no unreleased code in the branch we were
usually releasing from. Regarding a trunk release, I'm afraid it would
involve an unjustifiable effort bring it into a shape that meets our
quality criteria. There should be at least a beta release (because this
branch has never been released so far) and I doubt we would get valuable
feedback, given the shrunk user base. In fact, it is unclear if there still
is one. Thus, it would require to thoroughly test all potential
compatibility issues, which is nothing we can do in our spare time. Our
attempts to let the developer community grow failed, and we did a lot to
keep ODE's lights on, although there was no public interest in it anymore.
But now I believe retirement is the best option for ODE (and its
maintainers).

Thanks,
  Tammo
