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.
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.
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.)
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.
