Topic 230646

Here in the Crunchers Corner there are lots of Treads regarding new versions of the different App's.  When I look at the Applications page and review the various versions of the Applications I see BETA versions that date back to 2019.  In this amount of time should we have gotten enough of a sample to validate a BETA as effective and then move it out of BETA status to Production ?  

There are probably users who are not interested in being a BETA tester who could benefit if some of there applications were moved to main line production.

Thoughts anyone ?

Yes, I would think so.   But I believe it is for the system programmers to decide if and when to remove the BETA version(s).

My recommendation is that if it bothers you so much, that you contact the developers about it.

George,

Thank you for your recommendation.  I have started the process. I have not crunched as many tasks as you have, but I have been here 13 years longer.

In general BETA versions are

In general BETA versions are occasionally left as such to give the participants the opportunity to opt out of these specific versions, should problems arise e.g. with a new driver version. But as we are understaffed a bit, old things are occasionally forgotten when we have our desks full with high priority things. I'll put reviewing the Beta (status of) app versions on my todo list, thanks for the reminder!
