Re: Support for 0.9 – how long?
The shorter the better IMO. How about six months?
That should be enough time for people to sort out their plugins. _CK_ posted somewhere that their plugins will be updated in November (I think) and since a huge proportion of the most popular plugins are by them I’d be inclined to base the date on that.
You don’t want to end up in a similar rut to how WordPress ended up supporting the 2.0 branch for a stupidly long period of time despite nearly no one actually using it.
