Issue #5056 has been updated by Yui NARUSE.

Status changed from Open to Assigned

I think the title of this topic is not "About 1.9 EOL" but "Road to 2.0".

First of all we should decide what is the 2.0.

If 2.0 is the next release of Ruby (it is called 1.9.4), it is only the naming issue.
(because I want to release next version of 1.9.3 in the year 2012 (or early 2013).)

If 2.0 is the ideal version of Ruby, matz must define what is the ideal version.
For example it includes
* Generational GC
* MVM
* Class box
* Refinements
* and so on

Whether creating ruby_1_9 branch or not, the life time of 1.9.[23] can be discussed after it is decided.

At RubyKaigi,  I was surprised to  hear Matz saying "there  will be no
1.9.4 because it becomes 2.0".

Question 1: are you kidding?  or seriously speaking?

Question 2:  do you have  plan(s) for making  1.9 branch just  like we
have  1.8 branch  now?  or  the  whole 1.9  series just  die when  2.0
development starts?

Question 3: who take care of the 2.0 branch? and who for 1.9 (if any)?
Currently yugui  is the mentor of  1.9 series.  Does she  shift to 2.0
mentor and new 1.9 person to appear, or she remains to 1.9 and new one
for 2.0?
