We see the new release of 4.08 - it is posted as a Production release on the ROOT home page. One of our collaborators noticed the following page:
where 4.08 is listed as New rather than Production.
Though I do note that it is the Recommended version.
Our group typically holds off migrating to a new version of ROOT until it is termed a production release.
Is our hesitation unwarrented?
Do you have an idea of how long 4.08 would be termed new?
