Not a big deal from this end (based on your comments).  We'll have version 2.0 ready around the end of the year.  The last News Item I sent was for Version 1.2, which was at the beginning of the year.   I didn't think to send every point release in between to the news items, only those that I thought merited announcement.  Version 1.6 has some interesting new features.  But Version 2.0 will have a lot more thrown in as well.

I swear we had a similar conversation to this the last time around too, you were making some similar cautioning statements at that time as well.   BTW: What's the Gage being used for saying something is not widespread.  It's in widespread use around here.  :c)

Anyway, I'll send something along for Version 2.0 when it's ready.

Tyler and I handle news announcements.

I reviewed it and didn't feel it merited handling via the announcement channel
as it is only a point release and of a software package that isn't particularly

I neglected to respond that I didn't intend to post it in case Tyler felt
differently and wanted to post it.  Sorry for the lack of feedback.

I apply my personal judgement on what announcements are of sufficiently broad
interest, and sufficient in support of the goals of OSGeo to merit forwarding
and posting to the web site.  I would note, I also do not post GDAL point
release announcements.  :-)

This reminds me I need to post some announcements from the last board meeting.
