As a module developer, i have the same reaction as Charles.
I am just finishing to migrate my modules to 3.5, i have not even gave an eye to 3.6 and you are telling us about 3.7 !

Another point is the lack of visibility of what will come in new release before it's released, but that's another troll...

In fact, i no more complain about all of this because the people behind it spend a lot of time in dolibarr evolution, and i cannot do the same so i shut up.
Maybe if they go slower i will be able to help more, but still it's not the case, i cant.

Once we told about a LTS release; maybe we should one day do more than talking.

My two cents ("en vrac")

Hi everybody,

I think that keeping this 2 major versions a year plan is a good way to keep the community dynamism.
This does not prevent from doing quality developments (as many thiings in 3.7 has been done to uniformize and anglicize the code).

Also, we saw that there's a lack of testing after developing new features. So having more new feature after a complete year of development will mean more testing... I know that today with a new release every 6 month, we focus on testing and bug fixing more often...

Finally, there are a lot of customers asking for new features (they love open-source :) ) and telling them they have to wait a whole year to have it seems complicated to me.

But that's only my opinion. Charles, can you share the pros and cons to support your opinion ?

Freeze the develop branch to start beta in not a good idea : we need more
time between 2 major versions (One year, not six month) to test and develop
ours modules.

If we maintain this crazy rate of two major releases per year, I will no
more upgrade my modules for the February version.

It's time to make quality more than quantity
