The Vision for 1.0

The Parrot Developer Summit last month was incredibly productive. One of the biggest results was a roadmap for the next several years of releases, starting with the 1.0 production release in March 2009. Many of us on the project have been treating 1.0 as the perfect release where all features we could ever hope for are completed. But the simple fact is, there will always be interesting new features to add to the project, and that's a good thing. The paradigm shift for the new release plan is to start treating 1.0 more like we already treat our regular monthly releases.
