Hello all,
I am just wondering if there are any plans to do minor (and bug fix) releases of UPP. I am currently using 2007.1, and have patched the libraries because of this: http://www.ultimatepp.org/forum/index.php?t=msg&goto=859 6& (crash when compiling in anything other than debug) and this: http://www.ultimatepp.org/forum/index.php?t=msg&goto=829 2& (crash when non-number is entered into EditInt).

Sorry if I have missed this somewhere else.

By the way, ultimate++ is absolutely wonderful! i can't even count the amount of time that it has saved me.

Hello,

all old known bugs are fixed in the next dev release. You can download current dev version that include the above corrections.
The problem with the dev version is that can appear some new bug. If it appear you can immediately patch it.
I release my program using almost latest dev version. If you use 2007.1 version then you missed the Drag and Drop and some other nice features of the current dev version.

Well, I guess the debate is still sort of on about what releases should go.

Personally, I always use the absolutely latest (uvs2) version to do everything, including mission critical apps. Dev versions are next to it.

Major versions are sort of "freeze dev, wait a couple of weeks for major bugs to appear, then name it Major release". Of course, usually there are some targets too to be done before an attempt at major version.

That said, 2007.2 is coming.

drop uvs in favor of svn on better line, give users rights to modify main branch, or let them create experiment branches, and the process of modifying/bending -> adopting -> merging with core by users will get much easier. Also staying in sync with recent developments will be easier on linux when svn will be always most recent.

I am planning nightly builds, nightly svn updates. I guess experimental branches are the next thing to do.

Still reluctant about rights to modify the main branch though...

With experimental branches it will be much easier to keep them up to date with main line. The owner of experimental branch will simply apply all new commits from main line on his branch, and fix any conflict (which should be pretty sparse).

So there's no pressure on right to modify main line in such configuration.
Once the experimental branch will have it's new feature enough polished, it may be merged into main line by core UPP developer. (once again a simple task if it will be already updated with all main line commits by the experiment owner).

Also having all the time branch "public fixes" following the main line closely with rights for anyone registered to commit there you may get fixes from users into SVN ASAP, than somebody from Upp core will revise them and either roll them back or polish+merge into main.
The benefit will be very low entering costs for anyone interested into fixing something on Upp. He would just register on SVN (probably done by him already if he want to be up to date with latest development), and commit his fix.
And it may be reviewed by anybody else since then.
