[resolved] Why not release an official 1.5.1 RSS fix? (12 posts)

    Like 1.5.11 or something. I mean, it doesn't make sense to keep handing out for download a version that has a pretty serious bug, or at least to those that use RSS that is.

    Or did you guys already fix it in the version that's on the download page?

    have you searched for the fix on this forum? I believe there have been several threads on this, though I don't know if any of them are resolutions.

    Why not release an official 1.5.1 RSS fix?

    Because they're still working on it. If you want to start patching now, you'll have to sift through this list: http://trac.wordpress.org/timeline

    In this case and many others it is a real good idea to setup a system for WordPress like macmanx is reffering to.
    It does not do any harm to WordPress but improves the service of WordPress and also makes it easier to quickly update previously installed versions of WordPress.

    It also makes it more exciting when a real new version is coming out with new options.

    And WordPress also becomes more stable.

    Right now you really have to follow the website.

    While it could be easier also for the developers to release fixes and when there are really permanent or new changes it could become more interesting to release new Versions.

    There is really a diference between fixes and new Versions.

    I've already applied the fix to my site, I'm just talking about releasing an official fix for the notice user to use / fixing the WordPress ZIP or something.

    I mean 'cause it'll probably be a while before 1.5.2 comes out and meanwhile everyone who downloads 1.5.1 off the site will either have a non-working feed, come here to ask what's up, or even worse - have a bad experience with WP.

    I can only agree. In fact, I don't understand the update policy that is being driven here: OK, so bugs get into offical releases, that's ok, but then you need to admit that and release a (quick and dirty) fix fast. I waited a couple of days after the release of 1.5.1 to update my system, and was very disappointed to find that this serious feed error had several fixes in the forums, but no official notice. Such serious bugs need an official fix -- or better a fast update.

    IMHO as soon as WP developers fix the RSS bug, they should release a 1.5.2 version.
    RSS issue is a huge bug!

    P.S. Is the RSS bug fixed in the latest nightly build?

    It isn't just the RSS issue. Trackbacks and pingbacks have problems in 1.5.1, as well. It would be nice to at least get a statement from the developers about when we might expect a release that fixes these bugs. As it is, I have to decide on my own whether to sit tight and wait for a 1.5.2 at some indefinite future time, or to wade into the nightlies and try and patch it myself.

    But I thought tha'ts what the definition of "upgrade" was: "take out old bugs, put new ones in." ??

    I have to start a WP blog in the next few weeks. So I have 4 options:

    1. Use WP 1.5.0
    2. Use WP 1.5.1
    3. Use the latest nightly build
    4. Wait for the next official release (1.5.2?)

    What choose?
