I get a lot of confused people (students, management, teachers, IT
department etc...) about the following:
[*] sing the beta versions over the stable versions (although they were
convinced after i just said i was doing it, and told them i can teach
30% more in the same time simply due to 2.5x being so much mroe logical)
[*] When to write a new book. i.e. they were waiting for a new version
before writing another book, not realizing that the blender naming
scheme is totally $#*(%ed. I managed to convince them it is an entirely
new package now.
[*] When to stop distributing the old book. i.e. they are still handing
out 2.45 version books thinking it will be fine for the whole 2
series..... Uh-Oh, wrong!
This is a serious serious problem, and only gets me flack every time i
have a new class etc.... I've simply stopped defending Blender on it,
and say that it is great software with poor version numbering.
I wish Ton would understand the headaches the current numbering system
causes, It is a tangible issue that is holding Blender Back no-matter
how much it improves technically.
