> Is there a plan / schedule for Avro 2.0?

Christophe Taton started a discussion about this topic ten days ago on this
list.  You can find it in the archives.


A major release is required for incompatible changes to the schema
language.  Thus 2.0 planning work must focus on determining a set of such
changes.  I think in most (if not all) cases one can implement equivalent
features compatibly in the 1.0 branch at the cost of making schemas more
verbose.  So there's a tension between preserving compatibility and
improving schema elegance, as the issue discussed in this thread
illustrates.  Further discussion of a 2.0 release should probably occur on
that thread.
