IMO I think they should go with what they are doing as weekly sprints by repeating releases of reported bugs fixed by iteration. Knowing all the bugs will not be fixed, at least they can detect regression. Doing a more robust release at later stage will have the potential risks of missing all the client tests or bugs they have marked as fixed but could have broken other modules which I hope not but they may be the ones they haven't seen them coming. If it is the case, it may be much harder and time consuming to fix them and could delay final release. So either today or later, but I like to have it weekly if they can.
My guess is we probably will have a couple more of RCs and it does not surprise me since it deals with a whole IPS suite. Exact date will likely probably be in mid April or later if we're lucky to see a more robust release. Til then, I would'nt mind having more RCs as with each new one , you should get better stable release.
There is some cool features like address field which will linked directly the address with google map. I haven't played much with pages only recently. I did a quick test to see to see how fast pages allow you with some few configurations, you can easily start a full directory of nearby restaurants and get members liking and comments. I'm still looking how other have managed to put custom icons next to the title of the category/article. Haven't played with soundcloud and spotify fields yet though! But once you gets better idea what you can do with pages, it will help to think how you are going to design the site. I saw some templates there which probably next thing I need to learn how to do it to present data differently. Til then, I'm still pretty newbie to pages.
Nicely done with pages, opentype. Still have a lot to learn how to design mine with pages. I also love the guru image with the reword error message as "The Guru is at his wits’ end and couldn’t fulfill your request. He says …" .
There'll always be bugs but probably minors but no majors. I would'nt mind waiting few more days or til next Monday if final RC is planned to be released instead! I can see it coming as we have seen many pre-releases and betas and 3 RCs.
Good for you! But I opted to reinstall the test site from scratch to eliminate possible buggy prerelease and beta installation issues which may be hard to fix. Did not have much content. No much free time to investigate this , so at least by doing from scratch, I know it will be good for next delta release.
Do you have link to your ticket? Btw, did you manage to upgrade using RC3 from client area? No luck here, it breaks the whole site with some internal error, can't login to ACP and site has all errors. Weird! Rolling back to RC2. Seems like I still have bad previous installations between beta and rc releases?
Delta upgrade from ACP on my site stays forever at Preparing your update...! Does anyone have same probleme as mine? Have anyone succeded doing delta upgrading or you have to go to client area get the big zip file?
Anyone here uses \IPS\Output in a php custom block, i retry the code in my last reply with RC1, nothing is output from viewing page source code? Any help is appreciated! Only the below lines are shown:
