Re: What happened to the code freeze?

As an outsider, it does seem that GUI needs a few weeks of feature
freeze and bug fixing, so I wouldn't
give up on that just because it needs to be organized somehow ;-)

Could you please give an explanation of this impression? Was this a
general statement that before any gui release we should have such a
period or was this based on any specific know limitation of gui?

It's a general statement. The GUI is complicated because of all the interactions. A change in one place might break something somewhere else and which would seem completely unrelated ;-) (I blame the API, but you could conceivably blame
the implementation)

Because of that, I'd expect the GUI to need even more bug fixing than the rest ?

For the non-graphical stuff (gnustep-make, gnustep-base, jigs, SQLClient, WebServer, WebServices, etc) that we use at work, we are very keen on having very stable and bug free releases. We almost don't care about new features. But we need very stable software. So a long bug fixing phase is really good. :-)

I would imagine most other users appreciate very stable software too. :-)
