[Lift] Re: Lift under 2.8 timeframe ?

2009-11-12 Thread Timothy Perrett

DPP has a local branch running a crippled version of lift that builds with 2.8

Is there any reason you could not work with 2.7.7 for your dev - it would get 
you most of the way there until 2.8 is released. 

Cheers, Tim

 Hello guys,
 
 I'm on the process of choosing a web framework for one of my (scala 2.8) 
 project. I know Tapestry 5, but as we are likely to have a lot of AJAX

 I'm not sure I like what I'm seeing.
 
 So, Lift could be a great option, but as I said, the project is in Scala 
 2.8, and so I would need to now if a time frame is broadly known for 
 Lift port to that version.
 My problem is that I need to be able to start developping the web ui as 
 soon as possible (I'm quite under pressure for that), even if it means 
 living with a beta version of Lift for the next 3 months (or more).
 
 So, my question is: does a branch for Lift with Scala 2.8 is expected 
 pretty soon (even if the final comes only in months, it's obvious that 
 it will be after Scala 2.8 final, and we do know that it is not yet 
 here), or does that seem pretty unlikely ?
 
 Thanks in advance for the help,

I'm going to get the in earnest Lift - 2.8 port rolling tomorrow.
Hopefully, I'll have a branch that tracks the current Lift code running by
mid next week.

We are *very* serious and *VERY* (lots of emphasis) committed to Scala 2.8.
I'm expecting that Lift 1.1 ships (currently plans for early Jan) as Scala
2.8 only or as two flavors (2.7.x and 2.8)



 Thanks in advance for the help,

You feel this confident about Scala 2.8 release by Jan?

I'm curious because Scala 2.8 schedule seem to be
a fairly moving target.

Maybe Scala 2.8 gets pushed back a little and we push Lift 1.1 back a
little.

If Scala 2.8 beta (which is coming very soon) is a complete disaster (I give
this a  10% probability), yeah we'll re-think things.  But in any case,
there will be a 2.8 tracking branch of Lift.

That's so a great new :)

I never doubted that, it was just that as long as 2.8 wasn't released, I 
didn't know how much time you will to spend on it.

So, that's a really interesting new, it will have it's weight in the 
choice :)
