  • Install now or later?


    I'm about to set up a new board, and I was wondering if I should wait until 3.8 goes Gold. Is there a disadvantage to installing now and upgrading later?

    3.8 is still in beta. If you feel comfortable with beta software I would install it. Do so at your own risk.

    I would probably install the latest 3.7 branch and a test setup of 3.8. This will allow you to have a stable version while you test the new functions of 3.8 prior to release. - Everything Copier , Printer, Fax

      I'm just wondering, how many people install the new version before it goes stable? I've tested the new version and have found no major bugs (at least the features I need didn't have any). Besides having to update more often, are there any other disadvantages to installing RCs?

        I think there was a recent poll, but I usually wait until GOLD.
        And even then, I won't be upset if 3.8.1 is released shortly after if need be.
