when the release of IPB 2.3.0



To simply put it flat out since yet again IPS has to learn unless they are ready to release within a four day period, they should not make news and announcements about a new release, because everyone gets hyped up, and thinks its carved in a stone once its posted.

Probably when all the bugs are fixed, and when they are ready, its only a bug fixing update, no new features, so I don't see what the big deal is, and the version I am running 2.2.2 (think thats the latest) works fine don't have any bugs.

There is more to 2.3 than a simple bug release. Let them finish testing, it will be out when it's ready. FTR, they never said anything about 2.3 except that this forum was running it. With specific focus on "IP.Board 2.3.0 Applied for Testing" :)

We get pushed into this position of 50% of the people want it now, since we're working on it, regardless of the status, and 50% want it done right and not need to update their board a week after it's released.

We never officially put out an expected release date. It will be ready when it's ready. We're trying to 'get it right' rather than 'get it out fast'.

Expect is similar to "estimate" in this case. You can expect something and hit roadblocks. I did miss that in the topic though :)

BTW, I'm also really looking forward to 2.3 for many reasons, mostly related to converge. I wish it was out now, but I'll wait...until my patience outwits me >_>

The manual instructions end up taking even longer than remodding. I use a lot of mods and used to use a HUGE amount of them to where it took me 8+ hours straight to get the edits back in with no break and still when I look at those manual edits, they look like they would take a year to put in sometimes.

I'd rather have a bug-free release than a quick release, whenever ips thinks it's ready they'll release it and that's fine with me :)

Eventually I learned not to make modifications to my board... Any "added modifications" I do require zero IPB source modification and little template modification. It saves a TON of time.

When ever I make a mod, since the Report Center, I tend to approach it like the IPB source files are read only. I have to do it without changing the source code... And I've had a lot of success so far. The only mod I've done that required a modification, after the report center, was my PM monitoring system that I use on my board. It's pretty much impossible to prevent a PM from being deleted permanently unless I change something... But even so, it was 5 line change, and that's all I have to worry about for each upgrade :)

Pretty much the same here Luke, gone are the days of mass modifications!

For the very few mods i have (mostly custom), i make sure any edits that need to be made are minimal and as far as the skin is concerned, the default one is fine by me.

Oh and as for topics about "when will it be released" are concerned...

Zzzzzz

Please take your time and release a week after you think its ready and all bugs fixed. I'd rather get it right than get it fast. I want to upgrade my modifications as few times as possible.

That would be a mighty long time. The last time I mentioned there were 10 confirmed bugs in bug tracker still, and now there are still 9.

I am in no hurry either though and obviously want it fixed and working as well as possible. Just saying it sure didn't turn out close to 1-2 weeks before release. It's going to be month(s) instead of week(s) unless they aren't going to fix every bug that is saying confirmed by it.
