Is this related to the reason Vanilla's SettingsController was renamed to VanillaSettingsController?
You can no longer use the same controller name in two different addons. That was definitely intentional; it was a performance drag to let multiple addons share. I'm unclear if this other change was intentional.
I believe your MySQL install is in strict mode. Are you able to change that?
Usually when folks want to do this it's because they don't realize "latest" is calculated per user, not globally. It's correct for each person.
Well, @R_J found a very real issue with the release in the straggler HtmLawed plugin files being enabled for everyone due to how FTP works and I haven't seen anyone patch it in the 3 days intervening, so it was waiting on me to have time to do that. I also found a defect in the Addons directory that appears to be stopping me from uploading the latest version of Vanilla, so that's a challenge as well and I'm sure one more thing for me to do on my own.
Guys, need to keep promises.
I announced a plan, not a promise.
Apparently the status of the alpha is pretty good considering the remarkably tight schedule for beta-rc-gold posted by Linc here.
We use an Agile development process with 2-week sprints. Theoretically, we should be able to start a release after any of those sprints. In fact, we put 2.5 into production use as of 4pm today because we are satisfied it is ready for that. The big variable is whether there are issues that effect platforms other than our cloud systems on which we do all our testing. This is what we need you all to test for, and why we call it "beta" or "RC" - to give a little time for that, not because we're otherwise unsure of its stability. If there are issues and they are reported promptly, I'm confident we'll be able to work thru them quickly.
