Day 79: The night before 6.2.1.

[ #24300 ]
Much thanks to gaal and Stevan for preparing this nice ChangeLog that summarizes the past three days of hacking. Tonight's release plan came to a halt when Juerd explained succintly that our current type-based Context handling is All Wrong; instead of using object types, what really needs to happen is to group the contexts into Singular (subtypable), Plural (non-subtypable) and maybe Void (not sure). That invalidates much of the new context-handling code I checked in today, so I'm back at square one, needing to repair it tomorrow. :-/

Well... At least we did not push a bogus version out. I'll keep you posted...

  • I was unaware of the current implementation and only explained how I think things are meant. It was not my intention to delay the release -- Sorry, folks! :)

    And for outsiders who want to know what we're talking about (I can imagine it's all very vague and hard to follow if you "weren't there"), the IRC log with lines about other topics removed:
