Release 88.1: A New Release Model

Tuesday, January 18th 2022 by Factor House

Kpow v88.1 is the first release to follow our new Major.Minor release model.

Major.Minor Releases

We're changing Kpow's release tag to give you more information about the significance of different releases.

88: The major version. This will change with each significant feature or security related release.

**1:**The minor version. This will change with each intermediary release that should occur with our normal delivery frequency of every 1-2 weeks.

You should keep up to date with minor releases as they will include bug fixes, dependency updates, and any number of minor improvements to Kpow. Being behind on major releases is an indicator to you that you're missing out on significant new features or security improvements.

  • Bump core dependencies to latest where possible
