Re: [xmlblaster] Change xmlBlaster to JDK 1.5 (and above) only
looking forward in terms of develompent is a good idea, I think. So I
would appreciate such a step.
But nevertheless there are some concerns or questions raising up:
1. We would freeze features and functions of xmlBlaster for JDK 1.4 and
older to Release 1.0.7, correct?
2. If 1. applies, how would we handle bugfixing for the 1.0.7 part? We
would need to think about a branching strategy.
3. If 1. applies, what if we want features of the leeding edge
development having back in the 'old' part? We would need a back port
