    33== Why are we upgrading to 2.0? ==
     
    99A slightly outdated overview of what to expect from Evergreen 2.0 and our migration strategy
    1010is available in [http://bzr.coffeecode.net/upgrade_2011/ HTML, PDF, and text] formats.

     12== What about 2.1? ==
     13
     14Starting with the 2.1 release, the Evergreen development team has adopted an approach of
     15shorter times between releases. This will make upgrades easier: less down time, more
     16gradual evolution of staff client and catalogue interfaces, and fewer pieces that are likely
     17to break.
     18
     19After the 2.0 upgrade, we will continue to monitor the state of the 2.1 release. If stability
     20and timing work out, we would like to migrate to 2.1 in July (which is when the stable release
     21is expected).
     22
     23The 2.1 release contains important features such as a faster, much more functional
     24"basic catalogue", hold-driven recalls, merged serials holdings, and in-database
     25circulation rules. It would be a shame to have to go through a semester without those
     26features.
