Dolphin 7 Beta 7 Released

Boonex Dolphin 7 Beta 7 Released


After almost a full month, from the release of Boonex Dolphin 7 Beta 6, Boonex has finally released Dolphin 7 Beta 7 today.

We were told in Boonex Unity Blogs by Boonex Staff Members that after the release of Dolphin 7 Beta 7 they would be going to RC (Release Candidates). However, if you check Boonex Trac suddenly a Dolphin 7 Beta 8 has appeared on the list. It's not clear if there will now be another Dolphin Beta or not, but it seems to imply that there will. If another Beta is now planned, then one has to start to wonder just how many Betas are we going to see. It is starting to get a little old now.

Which brings up the next question if or when Boonex actually manages to release an Dolphin 7 RC version instead of Beta's, exactly how many RC's releases will we see? One has to wonder about this as well, not to mention stable releases.

We were told in Boonex Unity Blog posts that a stable version will be released before the end of the year. After waiting almost a year since Dolphin 7 was first mentioned Boonex is still spitting out Beta's.

I have a feeling a stable release will be a while yet, and I am starting to wonder if they can actually put out a decent relatively bug free stable release by the end of the year. I won't hold my breath on it. I am hopeful yet, but many members at Boonex Unity appear to be losing patience which after all this time is expected and reasonable.

You can check out the Dolphin 7 Beta 7 Online Demo which Boonex says they had to do a fresh install of the demo site again. All this wiping out the demo after each beta and re-installing is starting to get old too.
