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

Recommended Posts

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

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
