Confusing version information (15.55 to 15.58)

Hi,

 

in the last few weeks, a relatively large number of versions have been released at short intervals, the version information of which was, in my opinion, relatively confusing. For example, version 15.58 contains parts from 15.56, but one improvement is missing, but it contains a few additional fixes. In version 15.57 there is only one sentence in it that says version 15.55 will be continued (what does that mean to version 15.56?).

 

Best regards

Matthias

 

PS: Here is the version information I mean, as of 11/24/23, 8:30am:

  • Hey,

     

    version 15.56 unfortunately contained several bugs that caused problems for our users. Version 15.57 was functionally the same version as 15.55 (it was a rollback and the changes from 15.56 were rolled back). Version 15.58 contains all the changes that were in 15.56 but in addition some things that have been improved. Version 15.59 will be the version with more new changes and improvements.

     

    I hope I was able to make this clear.

     

    Best,

      Hello Pawel,
      this at least provides an explanation for this, but still leaves questions unanswered:
      1.) In 15.56 the improvement "Updated CEF Library to version 116. " was listed, in 15.58 no longer. According to your statement, it should be included.
      2.) I would have expected your explanation directly in the version information, so that it is clear to us users which version we can use and which we should not use. There are certainly users who do not always update to the latest version, but to the last or penultimate version, and if no advice is given not to use this version, this only leads to unnecessary effort on the part of the manufacturer and customer.
      Best regards
      Matthias

      With the 15.59 version, CEF is not at all working. So we downgraded our test completion to 15.57.

      We are wasting time finding test-complete bugs.

    Hi ! The 15.58 (which is in fact the 15.56) still have a problem with Edge (I don't know for Chrome users but I think it's the same, due to the same engine). This version cannot detect Edge properly. With this error :

     

    Is this will be fix in the 15.59 ?
