We have been using discourse in the default tests-passed releases for long time.
I would like to configure the forum to use only stable releases, and have only a few upgrades in the year.
I have read how to configure stable branch app.yml to using version: stable.
But my concern is whether I can do that safely at any moment, change it and rebulid the forum.
Right now we are in the current Beta5 release, and I am afraid that it could have made some breakng changes in database or other parts from the last stable release.
Can I do it at any moment, or I have to wait for next stable release?
Right now I cannot dedicate to the forum so much time as I used to, so I would prefer to have only a few upgrades along the year.
Hi there, thanks for the reply. Yes, I understand the nuances about “stable = not changing” vs. “stable = not crashing”. But I’m confused because I’m on tests-passed and it already has me on 3.3.0.beta1-dev. I was assuming that 3.2.0 was the latest stable release because it doesn’t have -dev or -beta in the name. Now it looks like I have to wait for the entire 3.3.0 development lifecycle and for stable to also reach version 3.3.0 before I can move to stable?
