Subject AW: Vote: <local> for 1.6
Date Wed, 22 Oct 2003 07:41:17 GMT
I am OK for the third beta.
In the third beta we should have :
- the <local> properties,
- a new xml-apis.jar (probably the one which is distributed with Xerces-Java
- can we also have the endorsed libraries ?
- other points ?
Once these changes are done - hopefully soon - we will set new dates (for
the third beta and for 1.6.0)

I think that such a change should require a third beta and an extension of
release timeframe.

I've just had a quick look at the code and wonder if the change in parallel
could be avoided by copying on demand from the parent thread. Parallel uses
ThreadGroups to make this possible already.
