Is v5.7 compatibility planned?Browser Info Environment
Thanks, and keep up the good work!
However, before porting I need to know what the core backup package will do. At the moment, core backup is just a placeholder in the 5.7 dashboard, so no-one has any idea of what the core backup will provide.
In the past the core team have subsumed functionality similar to popular addons into the core and I wouldn't want to put a whole lot of effort into porting Backup Voodoo only to discover the next 5.7 release already did some of that or completely cut my market from under me.
I will also need to be using 5.7 for my own customer projects. At the moment 5.7 is just too buggy and I will be starting new customer projects on 5.6 for a while yet. Once I actually have a need for Backup Voodoo on a 5.7 project of my own, then I will have a bigger reason to port it.
So, to summarise the preconditions before porting Backup Voodoo to 5.7:
- Developer documentation for 5.7 is much closer to completion.
- The functionality of what backup will be provided by the core becomes clear.
- 5.7 gains a worthwhile user base beyond relatively static brochure sites.
- 5.7 stabilises to the point that it is good enough to use for my own customer projects.
FWIW we’re using 5.7 for client projects. Not too buggy so far...
Anyway sounds like a good plan; thanks for your reply. cheers
