Topic: Wialon Hosting Release Notes
Before new functionality comes to stable release, it’s thoroughly tested in a separate Wialon version at dev.hosting.wialon.com.
We move on and introduce more flexible settings of Wialon Hosting versions.
Now there are three branches: Stable, Beta and Dev, where:
Stable is a branch with functionality which has undergone all stages of testing. It’s rarely updated with new features.
Beta is a branch containing the latest functions developed for the monitoring system. This branch is intended for the analysis of Wialon Hosting updates. Beta version is available for user DNS and http://hosting.wialon.com .
Dev is an established branch available at dev.hosting.wialon.com. Here you dip into the future and try most recent Wialon features. Dev version can still be used to try the new developments, whenever access to Beta is restricted by a top account.
In CMS Manager 'User Settings' dialog of a top user now contains 'Branches' tab. This tab provides a possibility to choose branches for user DNS available: Stable, Beta and Stable/Beta. The option “Stable/Beta” allows users for utilizing this DNS to be able to switch between branches on the login page of the monitoring system. In other words, if something goes wrong a user can always get back to the stable Wialon Hosting version.
The novelty is under development and the release is expected by the end of the day. Looking forward to your comments and suggestions to achieve the advanced user experience while using beta.
