Where to get release logs of new RC/Beta versions?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Where to get release logs of new RC/Beta versions?

I can see that 15.02 has a RC load.. But when you run it, you are told of the new features, but they are the same as 15.01 and 14.12.

Where can you get a list of changes that have been added in 15.02 so that I can actually Beta test the new version?

The list of changes is usually incorporated when a stable release is published. For the changes incorporated into release candidates you will have to check the Github source. Afaik the idea behind that scheme is that people testing RCs should be able to get the information from the source commits. People who have troubles finding the information there are recommended to work with stable releases.

Understood.. I have no idea where to get the "source commits".. But since I test software for a living, I always like to try out the RC versions just to see if I can find anything obvious.

But if I don't know whats changed, its very difficult for me to find any problems (other than obvious things which get broken).

Unless you're having an issue with the latest release, you shouldn't be using the RCs.

It's also quite a bit of work to keep release notes up to date on very RC. So that's why I collect the changes when I'm doing the final release.

Note that 15.02 will be a quick bugfix release to address some issues that showed up in 15.01

Imuse the stable release for 99% of my prints but always look at the RC versions to see whats new and to have a quick play to see if there are any obvious problems.
