Ok; first serious post.

What happens AFTER 1.0 "ships."  Does 1.0 become a long-term stable release while 1.1 and such are "beta" or "experimental", or do things pretty much go on as before, with periodic "fractional" releases being the recommended code to run?

What will justify going to 2.0 instead of 1.8 (or whatever)?

Wait, so we arduino is, in theory, sort of like in alpha stage of development ATM? I have heard mentions of v1.0, but what exactly is it anyway? Huge new features? Shiny buttons? I MUST KNOW NAO!

I think this is a concept inherited from Processing.

Processing is quite a few years old by now, and i think it was first sometime last year they released version 1.0.

So it's more like a "we have come a long way,  things are stable and working, so now we can concentrate on the future"  thing.

I think there will still be a need to make small / incremental improvements and additions, etc.  I don't have a good vision of what an experimental branch might be, or what 2.0 would be.

I actually like the current IDE numbering (16,17,18 etc) and how the current board name translates to 2009. Implies continuous development, rather than having to wait for the next major version before new features are emphasised.

good luck on your efforts! however i just don't understand what kind of a difference this would make to the users? I personally believe Arduino as it  is at the moment is a great idea...working on having a 1.0 release might make it look like any other development tool out there... We can perhaps stay alpha forever... remember the days when we were kids... all innocent, not caring bout anything and all that joyous exploration...the moment we became adults.. we lost all of it ... i think of arduino in the same way...and to add the forum and the site are good as well... far more functional than most sites... unless you want a site like apple smiley-wink

(The real problems don't show up till after version 3.  (4 being an "unlucky" number in many Asian cultures.)  And they get worse after version 12, since 13 is unlucky in European cultures, and 14 is another unlucky number in Asia again.  cisco recently hopped from version 12.4 to version 15.0; silliest thing ever... :-)

He surely meant Duemilanove, nothing to do with the forum "board"...

Since 28 is the next perfect number that should be probably be the last revision.
Otherwise we need to go to 496 smiley-wink
