We rushed *hard* to get 2.5 out, and unfortunately it wasn't all we'd hoped it
would be. As such we're calling a moratorium on committing feature changes to
trunk so that we can *all* concentrate on bug-fixes.
This means that all the frontend enhancement development, the core-treeview
branch, etc, should all be backburnered so that we can fix bugs in the core,
and any frontend bugs which mean that 2.5 is damaged-goods.
Everyone should be capable of helping in this process.
We need to find memory leaks, track down allocation issues, find sites which
trigger these things reliably, along with any crashers anyone can find.
Basically stress-test the browser and then find ways to easily reproduce issues
so that we can track them down and fix them.
So, to reiterate, only bug-fixes on trunk for now please. Someone needs to
remove the PDF export bit of the RISC OS menu (or fix PDF export, but I think
that's too much for this phase to be honest).
Feature development can continue on branches if you truly feel you cannot
contribute to the bug-fix effort.
We will release 2.6 when we feel it won't be another disappointment; and at
that point, trunk will be reopened to development.
