    I think it was a bad move from Mike to release Beta 3 immediately after the release of Beta 2. It looks weird and a bit unprofessional. A better way to fix the problem with Beta 2 was to release a patch and update the Beta 2 to include this patch.

    I feel Beta 3 a waste of beta numbers...

    What do you think?

    I believe the version bump was necessary for the phrase changes to function correctly. Most of those immediate post-release patch releases are strictly PHP related. I don't really think there's much of an issue with releasing it on the same day.

    I didn't realise beta numbers were in limited supply...

    This officially shows there will always be a complaint.

    Unprofessional? It's still in development. And it technically is a new version.

    That people will complain about anything :rolleyes:

    Dang - and I was hoping to convince @Mike to use "gamma" after the beta - just to really throw people for a loop. After all, we were used to the Tuesday rule for releases. Maybe they'll break free from the confines of alpha - beta - ...

    Better yet - I want to see beta ;)

    I think you have too much time on your hands to bother about such things. I see it as highly professional that a new version is released as soon as necessary.

    I call it being professional. I also call it - thanks Mike for releasing it so quickly but most of all I fancied another update tbh and feel 2 updates in 1 day fills my appetite with regards to upgrading consumption. Yeah!! More upgrades, sir? Yes please.

    A 3rd beta version that is released so soon after the 2nd, that addresses "found" issues can only be a WIN, in my humble opinion.

    Release as many as you deem necessay.

    Why y'all beta blockin? Nobody need to be gangbangin on beta. J/K

    But seriously, it has been said already..move on and don't give the idea any more attention than it deserves. The dude had an opinion, to be constructive all one needs to do is point out what positive things come from it. Instead of bashing someone for their negative view of the circumstances.

    In my situation I didn't get online until after b3 was dropped so realistically they saved me a upgrade by updating it so fast...and I am sure for anyone that needed the b3 update from 2 that it was also very convenient to get it so quickly.

    You're welcome to only update to the beta 2 if it makes you feel better. ;)

    You have no idea how much time it takes to go through 500+ phrases that are "outdated". Checking every one of them, if anything has changed, causes hard work for translators like myself; and it's a waste of time since it was a bug.
    For you it's unprofessional, for me it's something that I've seen little to none at other software developers.
    Thanks Mike!
