I want to inform you that we are planning to disable Beta support in the next two weeks. But we will continue to inform you on the forum, what“s new and in other sources about upcoming releases.
I will share with you the reasons why we are going to do this.
First is the low usage of Beta. At the peak of visits Beta, just 2% of all online users use it. That is also a reason why Beta reviews come extremely rarely. Over the past year, we got 5 requests about Beta suspicioned behavior.
There are some reasons on the technical side. You may have noticed that updates are periodically published with the note “will be installed in Stable”. There are a number of tasks that can not fully work in Beta. For example, if we change a data format. If you set up a new format in Beta, then go to Stable, you will get a conflict. Tasks related to the execution of notifications we also can set only in Stable, as they should be controlled just in one place by one rule.
Such technical limitations make using Beta incomplete.
For these reasons, we decided to close this functionality. But at the same time, we understand and accept responsibility for updates, we will continue working under making them unnoticed and predictable. In case of significant changes, we will ask your consultations here on the forum or in private contact.
Thank you all for participating in the development of Wialon!
