With almost 400,000 deployed in the world, we need to have some good
discussions on the backward compatibilty and upgradability of Activities.
Some of the bugs Charlie is writing up from the QA first look at joyride may
be answered by upgrading an activity to a newer one.
So here are the questions we need to discuss:
1 - Is there anyway to ensure backward compatibility of activities (the
8.1.1 activities will work with 8.2)? -- seems like a long shot to me.
2 - For support purposes, do we need or want to say that activities will be
backward compatible only across the year designator (8.1 activities will
work with 8.2; but from 8.x to 9.x, the activities will need to be updated
and probably retested and checked for new translations).
3 - Since I think it is going to be really hard to do either 1 or 2 above,
then we have to have a strategy for easy activity upgrades. We've talked
about this for a long time... do we have a proposal that we can really
implement as part of the 8.2 release?
