Kentico Software Plants a Tree for Every Bug
Kentico CMS 4.1 was released and the "Trees for Bugs" initiative launched!
The new Kentico CMS version 4.1 was released
, delivering all that was promised
, plus adding some "extras" - the "Trees for Bugs
” initiative and the announcement of our 7-Day Bug Fixing policy
From today, for each bug found by our clients in the 4.1 version of Kentico CMS, one tree will be planted. We also promise that each bug will be fixed within 7 business days from the day we have enough information to reproduce it. While bug submissions for the "Trees for Bugs" initiative will be closed by the end of October 2009, the 7-day bug fixing policy will remain for all future versions of Kentico CMS
For both Trees for Bugs and the 7-Day Bug Fixing policy, we count only bugs that cannot be easily worked around and that do not allow usage of some particular feature. Examples:
The document cannot be saved correctly - bug
The document cannot be saved correctly when using Kentico CMS API, but this can be worked around by using some other method that works well - not a "bug" for this purpose
The new document icon is not displayed correctly in Firefox 2.5.1 - not a "bug" for this purpose
Of course, we will fix all bugs reported, but the "minor bugs" will be fixed in the next release (version 5.0 at the end of 2009).
You can check the current number of reported bugs (=trees to be planted) in the counter in the header of the trees.kentico.com
microsite, where you will also find more details about this initiative.
There is a Czech saying: "Build a house, plant a tree, bear a son" - now you can achieve the second by testing the 4.1 version
