View Full Version : More frequent or consolidated releases?

I was wondering what is preferrable, more frequent releases as bugs are fixed and new things are added or less frequent consolidated releases?

Like for example, right now I have a release ready that has about 10 bug fixes, a few very important ones. The resizable component is new and the UpdateManager received some new functionality.

I can release this as a minor release (as I usually do), or I can wait until there is more updates, new stuff, etc to include.

Since this affects you guys more than me, I am interested in your opinions.

Thanks,
Jack

I'd say minor releases with less documentation and catch the documentation up in the major releases. I know I'm anxiously looking for fixed columns as soon as possible.

How about an SVN repository?

You could provide a download for a stable release and those who want to try/test the lastest fixes could grab it from the SVN.

I would also vote for an SVN repository.

That could have the added benefit that it would be relatively easy for others to contribute fixes, etc -- perhaps that's already happening, I don't know.
