Even the linux kernel has changed versioning scheme over the years.
But to the facts; I'd be surprised to see any program being heavily rewritten from version x.yz into x.y[z+1]. I've never seen it before, but some time should be the first time, they say.
* Two weeks would be a suitable last test-period from last Release Candidate to Release. Why do I know this?:
* No, I'm not an angry user. I'm a programmer. Have been for a decade. Been developing in several languages on DOS/Win32/Linux, mostly in C and C++.
I would like to know where you get the idea that someone could port a newly released ATI driver to RandR 1.2 in two weeks (and not have something extremely broken and buggy and only worth a complete re-write or two).
Have you even once written a single line of code? It doesn't sound like it. Your immature view on open source, seems the equal on programming in general.
Just making your first build of X.org succeed takes a lot of time.
You lost the discussion, please, do it gracefully.
This is tasteless.
I have my challenge already, and it lies in Avivo, and I'm probably failing there since I haven't touched that code in a few weeks.
* Moderm linux versions
* Modern X.org
* A computer with a black metal case and a blue power light
* In a room with only 1 window
* Any other obscure reason
I prefer positive surprises, over negative ones.
