Subject Re: Ivy upcoming release - where we stand
Date Mon, 11 Sep 2017 19:45:03 GMT
I'd like to have https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IVY-1420 included in
the upcoming release.

There were few opinions about using SVG graphics, so I'm not sure whether
the proposals could just simply be merged. It would be nice to refresh the
site for the 10th anniversary of graduation from the incubator, though.

Finally, there is a contentious issue of API change regarding the use of
generics. Arrays of generics is a no-no in Java [1]. Thus, the method in
question should be deprecated. IMHO, the suggested mitigation by providing
a default implementation of the new method in terms of the old one in the
abstract class is sufficient for the use cases found in the wild.
