We started discussing preliminary planning of the Dojo 2.0 release this
week during the meeting. Here is what is going on:
1. svn trunk is open to new bug fixes and feature enhancements again,
but *only* for changes that will not break backwards compatibility (i.e.
treat it like we are doing a 1.9 release). This may not bear mentioning
but of course the 1.8 branch is also open for regression and bug fixes
2. Before moving forward with actually writing new code for a Dojo 2.0,
we need to do the following:
a. evaluate testing frameworks <http://plan.dojotoolkit.org/issues/68>
b. evaluate package managers <http://plan.dojotoolkit.org/issues/69>
c. figure out what parts of the toolkit people are using today
d. quickly build a short list of modules we know we want to carry
I am in the process of working on (c), but the other tasks are open to
anyone and everyone that wishes to assist. Just write your thoughts in
plan.dtk.org and we?ll discuss in two weeks. I?ve also received some
interest from some other parties that may be interested in working on
this roadmap, so you may see some new faces on the contributors list soon.
In 1.8 release news, it sounds like we want to do a 1.8.1 in 2 weeks or
so, as a few high-visibility bugs have been noted in the 1.8 branch.
That?s all for now!
