The discount on commercial license and support subscriptions will be ending when 1.0 is released. 1.0 is a track to be released early next week. If you would like to take advantage of the discount, you should make any purchases this week.

Hi Darrell,

Up until now, Ext-GWT has pretty much been point releases of the main SVN trunk with the latest-and-greatest available via SVN.

A few questions regarding releases going forward:

Will there be any interim RC releases between now and the production 1.0 release?

What will be the frequency of releases for a) commercial licensees and b) non-commercial licensees?

Do you intend to create branches for each major release with maintenance fixes provided for each branch? For example, as you move forward with your roadmap, there are likely to be "2.0" changes that significantly impact the "1.0" API. Meanwhile, there are likely to be high-priority fixes required on top of 1.0 that you don't want to be merged in with the 2.0 development.

Thanks,
Andre

Will there be any interim RC releases between now and the production 1.0 release?Yes, RC2 will be out soon.


What will be the frequency of releases for a) commercial licensees and b) non-commercial licensees?There is not a fixed interval of time between releases. There will be new releases as they are available. Take a look at the roadmap to see what is included in the next couple of releases.

For example, a new 1.1 branch will be created. Bug fixes will still be applied to 1.0. When 1.1 is complete, it will be merged back to the trunk.
