PortaOne Announces New Maintenance Release Policies

Previously, PortaOne issued one or two maintenance releases annually, and these releases used to contain quite a broad set of new features. A long list of significant changes in one release requires relatively long development, testing, and installation cycles.

From now on, PortaOne decided to slightly change its maintenance release policy to better accommodate our customers’ demand for rapid functionality deployment.

Starting this year our development plans will usually include 3 to 4 maintenance releases per year, with periods between individual releases being around three or four months. A shorter development/testing cycle means smaller releases. New maintenance releases (like MR13 issued this week) will tend to have smaller lists of new features. These policy changes decrease the waiting time for new features to become available and facilitates a smoother and coherent upgrade process. We will also dedicate special resources to improve the processes of upgrade automation.

The official MR14 Project start date is 2 October 2006. Maintenance release 14 is expected to be issued in December 2006.
