3. It is very important to catch backward compatibility problems during development of new releases. In particular, it is important to test new Zope releases before they are released in final form. If a backward-compatibility problem is found before the final release, it will be considered a bug and will be fixed (by adding backward compatibility support) if at all possible before the final release. After the final release, we may choose not to bother to fix backward-compatibility problems. Consumers of Zope have a right to backward compatibility, but they also have a responsibility to test Zope against their applications during the beta release cycle (or sooner) to make sure their applications work.
""""Consumers of Zope have a right to backward compatibility"""
Consumers of Zope also have the duty to test beta releases! A lot of people
are waiting the final release before trying it for a variety of reasons. So why
do be do beta releases? :-)
