Yes that helps in one way but brings up another question.
- Let's say I have a project scheduled to deliver in July and I use the Prometheous controls in it.
- I finish it, install it, and don't hear from them for a short amount of time, let's say a month or two, at which time they need a very simple change.
- In the mean time 2 new updates have happened to the control set and it breaks some things in this project, fixable, but nonetheless breaks.
- At this point I have to put in a significant amount of time to update a project that would usually have taken me less than an hour to change.
That situation is my concern.
Typically, I wouldn't use a beta control because of this reason; however, telerik has introduced this 'Go-Live' beta idea which is very confusing to me.
The 'Go-Live' beta seems equivelant to a person going in for a clinical drug trial with a disclaimer saying there are major risks and then the doctor leaning over and saying "don't worry, this is not your standard drug trial, you'll be fine" The patient then thinks ahhhhh this is safe, I'll take the drug. A month later the patient dies and the doctors tell the familiy "but it was a clinical study....we told you the risks upfront"
I am not trying bad-mouth what you are doing....I want to use these new controls (and probably will); however, I don't understand why you just didn't call it a beta.
