What are the principal release branches of Weka?


Refer to History for a tabular overview of all Weka releases.

Several branches are associated with the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd editions of the book "Data Mining: Practical Machine Learning Tools and Techniques" by Ian H. Witten and Eibe Frank, joined by Mark Hall for the 3rd edition.

Once created, non-development branches receive bug fixes, but no new features (classifiers, filters, etc.).
