iPoint Deployment Cycle Explained
Once an official release is finalized, it is automagically released so that everyone is on the current version.
However, development continues after an official release is created and the code can change based on a couple of elements.
- As bugs are discovered they are squashed and fixed in the βeta release.
- As community members suggest feature requests and they are developed, they are added to the βeta version of the software.
The βeta version of the software is then deployed based on one of the following criteria:
- Any community member who utilizes the software where the bug resided will be updated.
- Those requesting the new feature will be updated if they have agreed to be a βeta tester.
Once bug squashes and feature requests have been fully tested, a new current release will be deployed to everyone.
Features documented on this page have been added since the last release. This page is updated as new features are created and updated. However, these features are not yet part of an official release, so you may not be able to use them until the official release is complete. This page will help you see the ongoing work being completed by the development team. Note: While this list isn’t comprehensive, it does list the majority of the changes and upgrades we’ve made to iPoint.
