Version 1.2 + The Changelog

Around these parts, things change faster than you can say easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy. In our August newsletter, we recapped launching Version 1, told you about Version 1.1, and before the ink was dry on the newsletter we released Version 1.2. Really, the version designations are somewhat artificial because we are web-based/cloud-based, there is no CD-ROM to install, update to download, or reboot necessary for clients.

This approach has a number of benefits for users. With BumbleBee updates are instantaneous (don’t worry, we usually make sure there is a lull before going live with changes). It is as simple as that. The next time you click on a button or log in, you see the changes. No more waiting for a holiday or “clean-up” day when your children are not present. And there is no need to upgrade your computer to meet the latest system requirements. Everything is incremental.

The downside of this approach is that sometimes users don’t know we made an improvement or made a fix until we talk reach out. Well, as of now, that is ancient history. Starting today, we are going to have a rolling changelog to keep you up-to-date on the latest improvements and, erhem, occasional bug fixes to BumbleBee. While we know this will not be something you leap out of bed in the morning to check, we do hope it will be something you look at from time to time (note: we do not recommend leaping out of the bed in the morning). You might find something that you were asking for or did not even know you needed. Also, when possible will try to provide a link so that BumbleBee clients can click straight through and log on to see the change (e.g., our new vital stats report). Of course, we can do that, because we are cloud-based.

Note: For the few of you out there who are subscribing to our blog by a RSS feedreader (e.g., Google Reader), you may need to remove and re-add feed link with the new blog feed, unless you do not mind seeing our changelog mixed in with blog posts.
