Beta 1.7.1 how much longer

Post by rif » 17 Jan 2008 22:41

HxD 1.7.1 beta works well.

It has been in beta since June 2007 - more than half a year.

When is it going to be promoted from beta to final release?

Hello,
The release of HxD 1.7.2 stable is planned for January, the latest for the beginning of February.

It will include some fixes and some enhancements. More on that when it is released.

Regards,
Maël.

I have sometimes wanted to recommend HxD to other people, but it is always a bit difficult to tell people that they should use a beta version.

I recommend that future beta testing should be max 2 months, otherwise new beta versions should be published.

While I agree with you that it would be better to have shorter release cycles, I cannot schedule my free time as I would like to. I use quite a bit of my free time to work on this project, but since I don't get money out of it sometimes other more pressing tasks have to take precedence, unfortunately.

Though, the main problem with this release is that not only fixes but other features were planned. In future beta versions I'll focus on fixes so after the first beta is out, stables should follow more quickly.

Hoi Maël

That is OK, take the time you need. Once the 1.7.1 is out of beta I will start suggesting it to other people.

Thanks. I noticed already the new version by chance and have downloaded it. First tests look good.
