Development Roadmap

Milestone 1.0 (Feb 2009)

This is a planned initial release of the 1.x line, to be shortly deprecated into maintenance mode so we can focus on 2.0, a major refactor of the L8X code onto the PKP WAL. We will still be tracking and addressing major / security-related bugs, and you are encouraged to browse our Bugzilla database fully.
