I agree.

For the 1.0 release, what do you think about an
"OpenStep-compliant release" ?

- This is the first goal of GNUstep.
- There is already some bugs to fix for "OpenStep-compliants" classes.
- There is already documentation for "OpenStep-compliants" classes.

I think developpers can only target on it for the 1.0.

1.2 could be Windows / OpenStep + bug fix

About Cocoa ( the Cocoa in MacOS 10.1 for example ) could be a 2.0 target.
Can we create a GNUstepAppleExtentions in a separate framework for it ?
