Coffee Anyone? Bugs Aren't Fun... PDF  | Print |  E-mail

Our Senseo is on its fourth cup so far, but we do have good news. We've fixed several bugs in our content management system (CMS) that prevented things such as some links not being formatted properly (driving you, the viewer, to a not-so-pleasant error page). Which, brings me to a rant on software versioning.

Software should be progressive, if there are known issues about a CMS, it should be handled like any other software that has a logical upgrade system... with a sub-point release. Joomla 1.0.8 should have had these types of issues fixed in 1.0.8r1 (or if you prefer). Simply knowing issues exist isn't good enough, be quick in responding to them and deploy updates that are clearly needed. That said, don't get us started about Windows and its "version numbers are evil" style of updating... I don't think we'd ever use a CMS that had 1100 hotfixes followed by a service pack every 18 months.
