RE: [cdt-dev] CDT packaging and versioning suggestions

I guess to make it truely like the Eclipse downloads, we would offer sdk and
runtime versions of the CDT which would have and not have source
respectively.  The sdk version would be used by people writing extensions
for the CDT and need source for debugging and the runtime version would be
people who just want to use the CDT (and by vendors who include the CDT in
their products and want to save on CD space ;-)

As for numbering the next version, I would expect that to depend upon the
plans for the next release.  I wouldn't give it a 2.0 yet, and it'll
probably have more content than a 1.0.2.  Version 1.1 works for me.  We do
need to have a planning session soon, though...

What does the community think? Is this an issue for you?

I agree with Ed on this one. Should we change the version number on the head
to 1.1.0? At this point in time I do not think that we have a build 1.0.2

The CDT Downloads pages has just been revamped and looks more like the
Eclipse downloads page.

Thanks for the suggestions Ed
