I Language: 1.2 Release Cancelled

Posted May 03, 2010 by User 1

Recently, the I project has been undergoing a massive restructuring effort for organization. This has essentially cut all backward compatibility in terms of libraries. Because a 1.2 release has to be mostly backwards compatible with 1.1, development could not be continued under that version.

Therefore, the trunk is now the 2.0 development line. It is recommended that library developers write for the 2.0 platform instead of the one in 1.1 as I 2.0 is planned to be a LTS release. More importantly, support for I1 will end as soon as I2 stable is released.

Estimated dates (not deadlines or goals):
May 31, 2010 - Alpha begins: No more major changes to structuring.
July 1, 2010 - Beta begins: No more major features. Code is branched and 2.1 development begins in trunk.
September 1, 2010 - Gamma begins: No more features unless they are essential to fixing a bug. The core (and its built-in libraries) reaches stability.
December 1, 2010 - PR begins: Final period of eliminating bugs in libraries along with any final touches. There should be no critical bugs when this begins.
December 31, 2010 - Stable release of everything making up I2.

Once again, these are the predicted dates for these events and will likely be revised as the time comes. Testing is very extensive for this release due to the large-scale changes and addition of numerous libraries which may introduce bugs.
