I think 1.5 needs to be kept updated as well. Without 1.5 receving updates I think the merge of 2.0 and 1.5 wouldn't be possible then.

I think 1.5 will still be updated in the future, but I think the focus is trying to get us to 2.5 and the great merge.

Well the focus to bring us to 2.5 or the merge is actually updating 1.5 on a regular basis as well. Not just the internal dev build but public updates too. If there is some kind of 1.5.X dev build version that will be merged with 2.X one day.

That's at least how I understood it.

That's not how it works. The Caucassus map needs to be rebuilt from the ground up to work with 2.X. It's not an iterative "upgrade", so to speak, to 1.5.

1.5 will be maintained as it is the stable release version, but I wouldn't expect any big updates to 1.5, just bug fixes and module support.

Once the "new" caucassus map is ready, it will be released for 2.5 and support for 1.5 can finally be discontinued.

Yes, that is pretty much the idea.

Since the newsletters usually come on friday, and the other thread got closed down, would it be offtopic to discuss the newsletter in this thread?
