Then the 2.7 beta would have last a !few months! more. Another month of testing for sure wouldn’t have hurt, but I got the impression at the end of the 2.7 beta, that people only got more and more disappointed that we didn’t implemented lots of feature wishes anymore - in order to remain things stable. Nevertheless should keep this in mind for the next round.
On the other hand, most of the .1 fixed stuff is scripting API stuff, which is far far to complex to be “completely” covered by a public beta. New tools and new people discover more holes to plug. There are in summary too many possible holes that could in theory cause small quirks or bigger bugs. I think we have to live in this case with small updates. Obviously can’t ensure that all the open paths and possibilities the API gives you are tested within a few month.
I’m glad you did not take my post as an personal atack. My impression is that releases before 2.7.0 were rock solid and 2.7 was not first release to bring “big” features - 1.8 was complex too (I think). I understand your impression though.
More small releases approach is a good one, I don’t critize you. Just wanted to share a thought and see how others think.
Exactly what I thought! Can you sir do a mind reading?
