With 5 votes in favor and 0 against, the vote passes.

I've gone ahead and updated the pom.xml files to set the version to be "1.0.0-SNAPSHOT" and changed the wiki downloads page that points to the snapshot release.

Thank you all for voting!

I agree this is the right discussion to have.

The way I've done things is the first major release is called 1.0, the first patch release is 1.0.1, etc. So we're not too far off.

Then, when I say "1.0", what I really mean is "the latest code in
the 1.0 branch, whatever that is right now".

That's a new one on me. But I can see it has merit.

When we did Kodo releases in the past, we tried hard to not do new
feature development in a maintenance branch.


So, following that
methodology, once we released 1.0.0, we would make a 1.0 branch, which
would periodically have tags on it when we release 1.0.1 etc. As soon
as 1.0 was out, all the interesting new cool stuff would then go into
the mainline, which would be 1.1.0-SNAPSHOT. (Unless, of course, we
had already cut a branch for 1.1 also, in which case the mainline
would be 1.2.0-SNAPSHOT, etc.)

Ok. I can see that this naming scheme is consistent. And I think we can use this along with Phill's suggestions:

Why don't we follow (I believe the SUN standard) convention of using the three
digits as in 1.2.3.
A change from 1.2.3 to 1.2.4 is a bug fix release no new functionality and fully
backward compatible.

Backward compatible == user classes built with e.g. 1.1.4 will execute with 1.1.5 but user classes built with 1.1.5 won't necessarily work with 1.1.4.

A change from 1.2.3 to 1.3 can have new functionality and bug fixes but is fully
backwards compatible.

New features can be added but only in a backward compatible way.

Finally a change from 1.2.3 to 2.0 is new functionality, bug fixes and no
guarantee of backward compatibility

Backward compatibility is still a goal but not a requirement.

I like the idea of having our first release out of the incubator be 1.0.

Let's drop the trailing .0 and reserve the third digit for patch
releases. This brings up the issue of release naming which we've
deferred until now. I think we need to decide what we call releases
and at what level we support backward compatibility.

I'll just emphasize my earlier comments about going through the open
JIRA issues and really making sure that we'll address the major
functionality, performance, and usability deficiencies. So this will
affect the schedule but not the naming of the release.
