Subject Re: [0.5][README] Upcoming SVN surgery
Date Thu, 23 Apr 2009 11:40:00 GMT
Hi David,

Apologies for the complete radio silence on the 0.5 release. I have
completed the reassembly of the Java broker and local testing is
looking good. So we should be in good shape to create an RC for review
at the end of next week.

Regards

Martin

Windows updates to the C++ that Steve has been working on out to the public in an official
build. I know we were originally targeting 3/27, what's your best guess on a revised schedule.
