It depends. Releasing a bugfixed 2.11 version is not really an option, because
Oliver made quite some changes, and as far as I know the current Contiki
sources won't build for the apple with a bugfixed 2.11. On the other side, the
development trunk has some known problems, for example

        static unsigned char Buf[10];
        int main (void)
            unsigned char* B = &Buf;

does not work. I don't seem to be able to finish bigger changes, because of
time constraints. Oliver told me that having POSIX opendir/readdir/closedir
functions for the CBMs would be useful, so I had a look into it and found that
it is not too much work. Started to write opendir() - and wasn't able to spent
a single minute on it the last five days or so. Just as an example ...

But the snapshot is probably better than the old 2.11 release, so it would be
possible to release it as 2.12 knowing that there are some problems.

How about this: I will give another 10 days for everyone to test the current
snapshot for serious problems and will release it as 2.12 after that. Would
that be acceptable?
