4D v15r5 vs 16

4D Tech mailing list
OK... so I'm a little dense with understanding the "R" releases yet.

Does v16 have goodies that 15 R5 doesn't?  - vice versa

Is v16 ready for prime time?
v15 R5 ready for prime time?

Randy,

We are distributing production releases using V15R5 at the moment...no issues thus far.

R releases are production-quality releases in between main versions. Each one has new features.  v16 is basically v15 R6.

v16 is looking really really good, especially now that HF2 is out. If you compare the v15 and v16 bug fix lists now, the two versions are nearly identical, meaning that there aren't many more bugs in v16 compared to v15 at this point.

v15R5 is a good version too, but with v16 out and stable there's probably not much point in starting something new with 15R5.

Randy,

I've had several issues with both 15 R5 and v16 (I don't have access to 16 HF2) and am therefore currently using v15r4 (which is certified for most systems).  I don't remember all the issues but I know I had several problems with menu management.

The following post from Thomas Maul describes the process for the R releases and why the bug fixes from .x may not be in the R release (sometimes the R release can be up to 3 months behind the .x release in terms of bug fixes):

As for 4D v16, I have used it a lot... seems just as solid as v15.4

Neil,

Are you using the "R" release of V16?

I've run into all kinds of issues with the "R" release due to plugins and the new Blink integrated web engine.

Just v16, however I don't use the integrated web.

Either I or 4D wrote the plugins I use... I have seen no issues there.
