Subject Re: Should I use Ibatis 2 or 3 for a new project?
Date Wed, 09 Dec 2009 16:50:38 GMT
As a member of the team here I fully support version 3.0.  I am working on a
new project and chose to use 3.0.  I also believe that Clinton is also using
for a new production product.

As we have said before on the list, it is up to the community to decide when
3.0 goes GA.  As for a RC version I almost think that our beta has those
qualities.  It is more likely to see it go from beta straight to GA.
