>> but is that version jump really necessary? What's the point in trailing the ubuntu versions when the goal is to run on other distro's as well? ... Or do we have a marketting department as well now?
The most common problem with the beta 1/2 was that people were installing it on the wrong Ubuntu version. So I figured syncing the versions would be better and make it clearer that this only works with 0704, and the next release for Kubuntu will be 0710, etc. As far as other distros, what I was thinking of doing was making all the versions trail the respective distros. So the Kubuntu version could be KU-0704 and KU-0710. If, in June, there's a release for, say SuSe 20, then the LinuxMCE that goes with it would be LinuxMCE SU-20.
This isn't ideal. But since LinuxMCE is an add-on and not yet included in the distros, I was trying to find a way to prevent people from using the wrong version of LinuxMCE for their distro, or using the LinuxMCE for Kubuntu on Fedora, etc. Any other suggestions are welcome.
You're right, though, that 1.0 shouldn't have been 1.0, and should have been a 0.9 or something.
