2.0 release candidates anywhere on the horizon?

At the risk of being flamed into oblivion...

Is there any idea yet of when 2.0 might enter the release candidate
phase? There are many new features and fixes on edge since 1.2 that
would be nice to get in a stable release.

Of course I'm not asking for a hard 2.0 release date... but insight
into the core's current thinking about 2.0 would be really
appreciated. (David outlined new features in 2.0 at RailsConf back in
May, so are we thinking summer? fall? etc.)

Thanks!

It seems that the answer about 2.0 is "when it is ready" but I agree
that fixes release rolled out anytime soon is a good idea. Say, 1.2.4.

the 2.0 release is still a way off, however a 1.2.4 stable release
could be made soon. We have backported a number of those fixes to the
1-2-stable branch, however not all of them have made it across.

There's not a large amount of functionality left to implement.
Hopefully we'll be able to publish a 'todo' list of sorts in the
coming weeks, outlining the functionality that we think is still
missing from edge rails. Then based on that, and community feedback,
we should have a better feel for the arrival of 2.0.

The best way to help 2.0 come sooner, is to try your current
applications with Edge rails, and let us know if what breaks.

That would be great.

That alone, I think, would be a great service to the community.
Seeing a to-do list, even if the items aren't very specific, helps
people know that things really are going on behind the scenes. It
will also motivate people to get involved and help "cross things off
the list". Like at the end of a long race, turning the corner, and
now seeing the rope across finish line somehow motivates you to run a
little faster than before :slight_smile:

Thanks again.
