The point of the 0.9 release is to bring Cobra close to its final form that will be seen in 1.0. This means streams, cues, syntactic relaxations, extensions on generics, closures, lambdas and more. Of course there should be a reduction in defects as well.
Following 0.9 will be a series of 0.9.x releases leading up to:
- 1.0alpha1 - 1.0alphaN
- 1.0beta1 - 1.0betaN
- 1.0rc1 - 1.0rcN (release candidate)
