Re: [Swftools-common] version 1.0?

    I read Andreas' post to mean 'Stable' as in Debian ... as in unchanging, rather than 'Stable' as in always works (Debian does well on both meanings, but the notion of unchanging is what they really refer to).  He wants to test thoroughly and know what does / doesn't work, and know that those test results will still be valid next week, next month, ...

    But i may be crossing my wires. If my interpretation is correct, why not just pick the version 0.9.X as your 'stable' -  why does it need to be 1.0??

well, i have to say thanks for your indirect answer to my quite simple

It stirred things up a bit though Filip didn't it? ;o)

But I have to beg to differ with you slightly.  The git repository
*IS* the latest
version.  Stability is relative, surely?   As you have stated, even the releases
labeled 'stable version' don't play well with all systems.    But hey, that
goes for nearly all software, from Open Source to the big expensive guns.
I can remember fighting  ( on someone's behalf ) with their sparkling new
purchase of 3dsMax from Autodesk.  It point blank refused to behave on
certain hardware under certain o/s, despite Autodesk's protestations to
the contrary.  Stable my eye!!  Did they care?  Did they ever! ;o)

Quit grumbling.  Enjoy what you have.  I'm sure your next 'stable' release,
which may or not work with 'your system' ( whatever that may be,  ) and
with lots of updated features  and bug fixes which also may or may not
work as intended, will be out very soon!
