Subject Tapestry 4.0
Date Sun, 03 Apr 2005 18:18:31 GMT
The sentiment of the community seems to be that the next major release of 
Tapestry (i.e., HiveMind infrastructure, Portlet support, etc.) is too 
different from Tapestry 3.0 to be called "Tapestry 3.1". This release
will only be largely backwards compatible; applications that sub-class 
BaseEngine or make use of custom Tapestry engine services will require some 
amount of re-work. In a small number of cases, component parameters 
(espcially those using direction "auto" or "custom") will not work exactly 
as before.

I feel it is completely reasonable to not call this release 3.1, but to 
continue to bend over backwards for backwards compatibility.

A +1 vote signals that you concur, and that the next reelease should be 
numbered 4.0. This will affect the code in a very limited way: Much code has 
been added with a @since 3.1 javadoc tag; this will change to @since 4.,0. 
Likewise, the 3.1 numbering is in documentation, and inside some of the 
specification DTDs; these will also change.
