Question: When to release new versions?

Simple question to everyone who is using jsunnyreports. Do you want me to release 1 release in a month containing a lot of fixes and/or features ? Or release a new version as soon as I have finished it?

    I think a release as soon it’s finished is the best option. So everyone can decide for himself to upgrade or wait for the next version.

    I totally agree with this.
    Perhaps jSR could also check for a new version and warn the user one way or the other (mail sent to a specified e-mail address, message on the index page, etc).

    I’m for a release as soon as possible, people who want more stable version can wait ! (and why not labeled the version as “stable” when a long time without bug reported is reach ?)

    Voor mij mag het gewoon als er iets klaar is, je kunt dan direct testen en eventuele bugs direct herkennen.

    I agree, the sooner you post , the sooner you get feedback

    As I said, I’d prefer to have a new version ASAP. However, having multiple bug-fixing releases could be a pain for some not-so-computer-friendly people. So why not create a simple mailing list with a few volunteers (with different settings) and send them new .jar or .zip file as soon as you think you’re ready for a new release. ‘Geeks’ who visit this website would be happy while more conservative people would enjoy having a new stable release only when necessary.
    I’m running Sunny Explorer on a SunnyBoy 300TL and I would be ok to test for this configuration (I can send you details about my ISP if you need it for FTP tests too).
