apologies if this is the wrong forum group to ask this.

I have concerns about the frequency of stable release updates that i get notifications on when i log into my instance of lime survey. it feels as if there are releases every few days if not every week, and it makes me feel like there is a huge administrative workload to have to keep updating my instance.

is there a set schedule of releases or is it just as changes get committed to the master branch a 'stable' build is pushed out?

I am not aware of a schedule. Mostly it depends on the kind and volume of fixed bugs. But you should email the Limesurvey GmbH directly or open a bugticket with your question. The forum is not the easiest place to get in touch with the maintainers of the code.

Just to get an idea :ohmy:

Benoît

EM Variables => bit.ly/1TKQyNu | EM Roadmap => bit.ly/1UTrOB4
Last Releases => 2.6x.x goo.gl/ztWfIV | 2.06/2.6.x => bit.ly/1Qv44A1
Demo Surveys => goo.gl/HuR6Xe (already included in /docs/demosurveys)

Well, someone came up with the new motto "release early, release often". Not sure if this is a good idea for a software that is often critical for business, but that is what the new philosophy is.

I'm not a LimeSurvey GmbH member. I answer at the LimeSurvey forum in my spare time. No support via private message.
