[Libguestfs] Proposed timetable for libguestfs 1.6



The development branch (1.5) contains some major performance
improvements over the current stable branch (1.4).  Furthermore nearly
3 months have passed since we branched 1.4, which is about the same
time that separated 1.4 from 1.2.

Thus I think around the first or second week of October we ought to
start the new stable and development branches (1.6 and 1.7 resp.)

At this time we should decide if all the new APIs and features we have
added in 1.5 are supportable in the long term, since we only guarantee
the C API is stable for stable branches.

Below are the commits we have added (so far) in 1.5, and you can read
the whole API on the website.  I will be compiling a summary of major
features in the release notes file in the source:

http://git.annexia.org/?p=libguestfs.git;a=blob;f=RELEASE-NOTES;hb=HEAD

Any objections or problems with a commit, please follow up.

Rich.
