View Full Version : Just a question...

After not using RP for nearly 2 years due to software conflicts with a CMS I was running, I have to say that I'm rather worried that in that nearly 2 years I was away, only 2 versions have been released (3.1 to 3.3) and the last release was a bug fix and nearly 3 months ago.
I guess what I'm asking is this. Is RP's development slowing/stalling? I just need to know if this product is 'dying' or not as I've spent this long trying other solutions and finally decided to come back to RP and lose the CMS so that RP would work properly. I'd hate to do all this work only to have a deprecated RP soon.
Thanks for your time, and I look forward to your reply.

I think your highly mistaken here. I show there have been at minimum 5 releases in the past 16 months evident by viewing the announcements on our site. Thats as far back as our site goes since we clean it out every now and then and that does not even go back to any of the pre 3.2 releases. There where several 3.1 releases before that.
So in 2 years your probally looking at minimum 8 releases and some of those very heavy releases with tons of new features.

If I am mistaken, than I apologise...
I'm just going on the fact that my old db was a 3.11 install and I just put on 3.33 which is only 2 'version' change with my assumption that .xX changes are bug fixes.
Again, I wasn't trying to be disparaging against RP... Just concerned that RP seems to be behind PP in terms of development/mods/etc and I just feel it's a shame. Sure, a robust gallery is always appreciated, there are alternatives like coppermine/gallery2... However, there are woefully few decent review scripts on par with what RP is (and can be) which is why I bought RP rather than PP.
Dunno... Just spent the past 48 hours ripping out old CMS crap from site and trying to hack together a purely vbadvanced/vb/rp powered site and probably am talking nonsense... Just waxing lyrical and wishing that RP had the 'development' that PP seems to have.

Reviewpost has the same level of development Photopost has. In fact the applications share most all the same features and reviewpost has quite a few features photopost does not have like reviewpost has unlimited review fields etc
