Why not start discussing them now?
A starter for the discussion -
- Include the ClassBuilder stuff
- Include what MCP accomplished
- Refactorings making various parts of the image easily removable.
(was in 3.4 - http://swiki.squeakfoundation.org/squeakfoundation/79)
- Have it tested with 1000 unit tests before releasing 3.5 final.
Release date for 3.5 beta - End of March
Release date for 3.5 gamma - End of April
Release date for 3.5 final - End of May
Motto - a fresh Squeak!
or - a tested and polished Squeak!
Release 3.6 (final for end of August)
Include basic Zurgle refactorings ?
Include Anthony Hannans work ?
Have a clean up of MetaClass and Co by Berne ?
Motto - <no idea yet>
Release 3.7 (final scheduled for end of November)
Have documentation updated and
integrated in various ways with the image.
Core is "only" 1000 classes.
