Hello,

I'm using SWTBot for testing of my RCP and I'm very happy with it.

Therefor I'm wondering that SWTBot is still a incubation project, because It runs very stable.

Can anybody say me, what are the reasons and how long this incubations phase should be. Is there a date for a release?

I know I could downlaod the current stand from the website. But thas is something, what I want to know.

Few reasons:

- Regular release milestone/plan - We follow release early, release
often. But we don't have a plan!

- Policies and procedures to define and get feedback on APIs: We try our
best to be API compatible, but don't guarantee any compatibility.

The 'incubation' label is about the process and maturity and not about
beta status or stability of a project.

I agree that it's been a long time that SWTBot has been in incubation
that people will feel that there's not much happening, but that's not
the case. SWTBot is under active development and we do release software
often :)

Cheers!
