- Agree, a 0.36 release would be good to have soon
- No, the next release should be 1.0 [pre] as planned
The reason for this seems to be that the next release is defined to be 1.0 and nothing else, but that important milestone is being pushed back because it’s not ready.
As far as I can tell, there is no significant downside to just making another 0.x release before it. The only thing is that Manas may be seen as backing out of their promise for 1.0. And, well, the VERSION file will have an inconsistency in git history.
I don’t think this release would delay 1.0, it’d just be a safer stepping stone on the way. Otherwise with a “big boom” release a lot can go wrong, and “pre-releases” don’t help much there. The latter would apply even if 1.0 was coming soon now. But in any case, many people are waiting for their desired language improvements to come out.
With this poll I hope to get some data regarding whether there is consensus on this. Otherwise all I see is occasional remarks from people wishing that there was a 0.36 release. Me definitely included.
