Subject RE: [Lucene.Net] VOTE: .NET 2.0 Framework Support After Apache Lucene.Net 2.9.4
Date Mon, 09 May 2011 21:52:38 GMT
That only works if you are *allowed* to deploy a new or updated .NET framework on the target
system, which is not always true.

But the problem is not really about deployment it is really more for those of us who must
compile from source and who are not permitted to upgrade our development toolset.

PS: If you are supporting .NET 3.5 then you get .NET 2.0 support anyway, you just have to
bin-deploy the .NET 3.5 dependencies (System.Core, etc) since they are all the same CLR

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.
