What is the version of the TCF communication protocol specified in
http://dsdp.eclipse.org/dsdp/tm/tcf/docs/TCF%20Specification .html ?

Is there a way, or planned a way, to have versioning as part of the
protocol itself? For example, it could be possible for the PC side to
request the target for the version used.

Or the target could be allowed to use various versions of the procotol in
parallel, and the PC side would know, for example by looking at the
message header, which version the message belongs to. This would make
really good sense if different parts of the target is delievered from
different vendors, each implementing different versions of the protocol
(you can't expect everyone to upgrade at the same time).

Hi Thomas,

there is a plan to version the TCF Protocol Specification in a
fine granular way. Felix Burton has the action item to do that:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=269352

I just created the bug for tracking the effort, but we did discuss it on
the TCF Round Table meeting recently:
