Nightly or V1.0 ? (5 posts)

    OK this is one of those simple questions that i guess could get complicated.

    I have 1.0 stable on but am finding quite a few bugs that are being discussed and addressed in trac.

    Now, should i be looking at nightly builds to address these or patching manually my 1.0 ? Which would be the better solution ?

    err are those really critical that you can't wait a release ? I run on a stable from march and nothing major ever happens. Maybe there are some little annoyances here and there, but nothing that would prevent me from waiting for a release (heck I didn't migrate yet to 1.0 lol).

    Nothing i have found has yet been a show stopper but i just wondered, from a bug squashing exercise, if nightly would be better or not ?

    I also see a new cropping.js in the nightly, and wondered if this has anything to do with custom headers ? Curious minds you see :)

    My experience with nightlies are, unless you are just patching in affected files, they can create as many bugs as they fix.

    I have patchy code in production, but locally I have a nightly, just to keep up.

    "I also see a new cropping.js in the nightly, and wondered if this has anything to do with custom headers ?"

    Probably not. Custom headers would be theme-dependant, and unless one of the default themes gets jazzed up, or the default *gasp* changes, you're not likely to see it.

    Search for a theme with customizable headers instead.

    Thanks Andrea. I think i'll stick with patching when the needs arise. The code, for the most part, seems very stable.
