Subject RE: [Lucene.Net] VOTE: .NET 2.0 Framework Support After Apache Lucene.Net 2.9.4
Date Mon, 09 May 2011 20:49:43 GMT
Before 2.9.4g, I would surely say "drop support for 2.0 completely". But now we have two versions(2.9.4
& 2.9.4g) and one can continue to support 2.0 till its death (2.9.4g may be used as base
for future versions, but this is not true for 2.9.4)

Subject: [Lucene.Net] VOTE: .NET 2.0 Framework Support After Apache Lucene.Net 2.9.4


Please cast your votes regarding the topic of .Net Framework support.

The question on the table is:

Should Apache Lucene.Net 2.9.4 be the last release which supports the
.Net 2.0 Framework?

Some options are:

[+1] - Yes, move forward to the latest .Net Framework version, and drop
support for 2.0 completely. New features and performance are more important
than backwards compatibility.
[0] - Yes, focus on the latest .Net Framework, but also include patches
and/or preprocessor directives and conditional compilation blocks to include
support for 2.0 when needed. New features, performance, and backwards
compatibility are all equally important and it's worth the additional
complexity and coding work to meet all of those goals.
[-1] No, .Net Framework 2.0 should remain our target platform. Backwards
compatibility is more important than new features and performance.

This vote is not limited to the Apache Lucene.Net IPMC. All
users/contributors/committers/mailing list lurkers are welcome to cast their
votes with an equal weight. This has been cross posted to both the dev and
user mailing lists.
