But there is nothing new to the Linux/Mac/FreeBSD builds! The code
base is just the same. It's just that we're linking against a newer
dynamic library. I therefore can't see any reason to do a increase
of the version number. There is something else when new neural nets
are introduced.

However.... will we ever get to release 1.0 ??

As Joseph has currently stopped work on the neural nets I think we can assume the engine is good enough for a version 1. Perhaps we could increase the version number to 0.2 just as a symbolic move away from gtk 1.3?

I think most people would agree there are more than enough "features" in gnubg for a first release, for me the weak areas are on the documentation side (help, manual, website) and the ui (usability).

The main thing outstanding on my todo list is the front end for the database statistics. I then plan to move on to tidying/making the ui easier to use.

My suggestion is to fork here, buiding a final 0.14.3 release with
all non-gui patches that are there. That could be released along
with a GTK 2.6 version which is declared beta. Because even the
non-modified GUI is better with 2.6 than it was with 1.3.

I suggest I fork the windows install archives here. I'll build and
publish the last gtk-1.3 install archive in the near future, and
simultaniously I'll publish a gtk-2.6 install archive. Smart?

Sounds like a good plan.
