Re: Version 7 - what release to install?

Hello Nicholas,

stable branches (7.0, 6.1...) do not receive new features patches, only bugfixes. So, we consider them to be stable.

For production enviroments, we use stable branches  at specific commit. That is, we freeze the installation and we don't install updates unless we need specific bugfixes.

Moreover, not every bugfix is merged into official branches. This is why OCB branches exist and we often use them in our installations too.

Thanks Lorenzo,

As a followup to your answer, do consider the github branches to be stable?  7.0, for example, is updated on a very regular basis, and I’m unclear as to whether it is being used by the odoo community for development purposes, or if only stable patches are merged into it.  It appears from the merged pull requests that the odoo team is using an odoo-dev repo for development, which would indicate implied stability in the odoo repo.

Thoughts?  Does anyone have recommended best practices for when to update your production  installation with the latest pull from github, or nightly?

We use the github code retrieved at fixed revision with buildout.

I'd like to poll the community for your recommendations for which release we should be installing for production and for future updates.  Do you install the build from nightly.odoo.com, the launchpad repo, or the github source?  The nightly package appears to be about a month old, but is it the official released stable version?  Or is it better to install the github source to ensure you have all updates?  Note that I am specifically talking about a production ready installation, not something for development/testing.

Thanks,
Nick Burdick
