As Patryk put it: “as there is currently no migration path for applets, we’ll skip this release entirely and push a 2.34 bugfix release instead”.
I’ve been short in time these last 6 month, busy moving between jobs and countries and trying to understand what’s the current trend of 3.0 is was the last of my concerns. So I say, we better wait a moment until the dust settles, than release a half-assed-last-minute hack.
It’s all python, so the current stand-alone version will run without problems on the 3.0. There is no place for applets yet though, but i’m sure we’ll find a way as soon as i’m running that thing on my desktop.
There are a few bugs out there that could use a hand, so if you are prolific in python and have some time – jump in and write some patches!
