2 years ago, my team worked for over 7 months to fix all aspects of this bug (called 2038 bug), it started to popup already (In case you wonder why the hell we fixed bugs for something that will become a problem only in decades, think of stocks with expiration date beyond 2038...)

I think you should delete all threads regarding to the release date of RC3  :twisted:

With regards, Morten.

This is kind of obvious, but I'll post it anyway. :P

A release is well overdue.. even a minor one, releases help motivate developers, would-be developers and the community
at large, they would also get announced on news/programming/tech/other sites, which in turn bring in more interested users who
will test, make bug reports, feature requests and whatnot, they also bring in potential developers who can help with said users
of said issues. :)

A minor release would also provide a base for which other projects who use the project can report bugs and whatnot too, rc2
is dated and stagnating, a major project like this (an ide) atleast needs a new release every now and then, I'm not talking about
a nightly build either.

You don't need to complete a roadmap in order for release, you can move items that aren't ready to the next version features
that can't get implemented (completely) in time get taken out, non-critical bugs could probably remain if they don't provide too
much of an annoyance.

This is a great project and it would be nice if there was a new version people could fall back on :)

I told you in another post of this thread: Remove the Cyrillic sig and we will see. Please note that I am not kidding. We have an english-only forum. This also applies to sigs. Thank you.

I want big house, nice car, some star to have my name and all software to be free and open-source and tons of others.

So who should I annoy to give me that ?

Something I'd like to get informed about is a "TODO"-List for the upcoming release, so that ppl know how they can help to make the release happen faster: what (hi-priority) bugs need to be fixed, which features need help, does the (and what part of the) documentation/icon/dialogs/translations need polish... this might also help to shut up those constantly bugging you for a request, as you can simply point them to that list and tell them to lend a hand instead of just demanding a new release.

We have a bug tracker and the forum. We know what's next to do by reading both. That basically should apply to others, too.
With regards, Morten.

For example by providing good support. I only know very less companies that have good quality support. BTW: This discussion is a chicken-egg problem anyways. There are enough companies out there providing free / open source software but still earn good money. Take Google as an example! ;-)

Free as in freedom, not for free. You can even sell GPL-ed software, it's not against the license.
