I smell 0.3.17 release pretty soon...

Do you smell it?
It is not coffee, nor the grass smell in a rainy day...
Seems bits and bytes are joining together to release 0.3.17 really soon.

Good news though I think it's such a release for solace for those waiting for the release of version 0.4

Version numbers are not important. Having stable and a steady flow of releases is what is important

The fact is that ReactOS 0.4 will be released when the trunk reaches (or possibly surpasses) The Project's requirements for what needs to be in version 0.4, and in the mean-time 0.3.x releases will continue as The Project deems appropriate.

What's the best way to get the word out about the 0.3.17 release? Are there any news outlets that would post an article?
It would be nice to get another influx of testers.

Just to make sure, the new explorer will be in 0.3.17? Right? :D
I use ReactOS on real hardware. Will you? My Computers: https://www.reactos.org/wiki/PC_ROS_Rigs Go all the way to the bottom.

Nope. 0.4 will. :)

Pi_User5, RC stands for "Release Candidate", so look at the current 0.3.17 RC, and you can see effectively what 0.3.17 will be. The only differences between an RC and the official release that it is/was a candidate for should be bug fixes, no new features introduced.

Once the shell-experiments branch gets merged into trunk, then the next release will include it, whether that be 0.4, or earlier, but as vicmarcal says, so far the only version that we know will include the new shell work that's been done in the shell-experiments branch is 0.4.

Like this one, sounds like in Fifth Element. :lol: We need this MotD in ROS.
Can I use it in my signature, with proper attribution of course?

I dunno. It's akin to saying 'Bullets don't kill people; people do' as a defence against gun-regulation.

Doesn't take away the fact that, in countries where there is more stringent gun-regulation, there is also less gun-related deaths.


The problem with the above statement is that it creates a dichotomy where there is none. It's not because stable releases are important, that version numbers can't be important neither. At least, it doesn't follow out of it. Thus, the first claim is unsubstantiated, and used in a way to imply reversed causality - where there is none in actuality - with the latter.

Of course; if version numbers had no importance, no-one would use them, and one could as well just name all versions the same, with simply 'Reactos'. It's easy to see that numbering your versions have a definite use and importance. This is not only in regard to easy follow-up, but also in regard to getting attention (especially with 'whole' numbers). Therefore, I find the first claim, as it stands, not valid.
