Re: [DISCUSS] 1.0.0 / 0.6.3 Releases
Upgrade to ElasticSearch 8 will be a breaking change in regarding to Geoshape properties because we won't have Prefix Tree indexing strategy anymore. Users will need to do migration of any indexes containing Geoshape properties because Circle shape isn't compatible with the BDB indexing strategy (the only geoshape indexing strategy available in ES 8). See: https://github.com/JanusGraph/janusgraph/pull/3268
That PR is blocked until ElasticSearch 8.6.0 is released. I would prefer including such a breaking change into the 1.0.0 release.
In December there are usually many holidays and I suspect not many people will work during holidays. I think it would make sense to make `1.0.0` release early January, so that we have time to finish several other PRs and allow more people to test it because it will include quite a few breaking changes.
