    Quoting from
    <http://groups.google.com/groups?selm=2hhl0l%2494r%40klaava.Helsinki.FI>:

    "In short, the next version of linux (0.99.15) will be a "full-featured"
    release, and only obvious bug-fixes to existing features will be applied
    before calling it 1.0. If this means that your favourite feature or
    networking version won't make it, don't despair: there is life even
    after beta (and it's probably not worth mailing me about it any more:
    I've seen quite a few favourite features already ;-)."

    Regards, Olaf.
