Cassandra 0.3 update

Two months after the first release candidate, Cassandra 0.3 is still not out. But, we're close!

We had two more bug-fix release candidates, and it's virtually certain that 0.3-final will be the same exact code as 0.3-rc3. (If you're using rc1, you do want to upgrade; see CHANGES.txt.) But, we got stuck in the ASF bureaucracy and it's going to take at least one more round-trip before the crack Release Prevention Team grudgingly lets us call it official.

In the meantime, work continues apace on trunk for 0.4.

It would be really cool to have the development happen day to day in a public forum using distributed version control, like github. That would enable much closer collaboration between facebook developers and interested developers outside facebook.

A DVCS would even make it easier to maintain an in-house version and sync pieces back and forth to and from the public version, if that's what you want to do.
