I have been lurking for a while and am very impressed with Tersus, its documentation and the responsiveness you show on the forum. I do have a major concern though, and would appreciate your comments (I am also happy to take it further off-line).
Some background to put it into context: I have spent many years in the Enterprise Management space, and am now consulting. A big problem experienced by large/complex organisations is that there are many inter-dependencies and thus potential clashes that their tools have. As an example, it happens often that tools A and B both require Java x.y.z, but when A gets updated, it suddenly breaks, requiring x.y+1.w. Unfortunately, A and B are written in such a way that both expect libraries in standard locations, etc. This even happens with software from the same vendor, and as part of the same suite.
The reason I gave that example is that in looking through the forum posts, I saw the post Version 1.0.38 released, with dire warnings about its stability. OK, so that means don't use it for production; whcih isimportant to know. The problem is, when I went to the download section of the site, all that was available was that version. I just checked again, and that is still the case, with it being listed as the latest stable version. So, which is correct: the forum post with its warnings about stability, or the download page with its statement of stability?
I want to use Tersus to earn my bread and butter, but am concerned about this as well as when I see things like the change log entries for 1.0.40, 41, 42 talking about fixing problems introduced in 1.0.38. Are these problems which existed before? If not, and they relate to pre-existing functionality, then I would appreciate a link to the previous stable version, otherwise I'll just use the log to make sure I don't use the new, broken stuff. Automated regression testing would also be something useful to look into. For example, see http://sourceforge.net/docman/display_doc.php?docid=30662&group_id=151639.
I am about to start learning Tersus at great speed to get a site up and running, but am concerned about the above. When I first downloaded Tersus, I got hold of studio and server 1.0.37. Should I rather work with those?
Looking forward to your comments.
