I worked in software development for years. There is a cost to constant releases. In the corporate world you just don't see key applications being updated all the time and for good reason. Many businesses are many versions behind because they don't want to spend the time and money on the upgrade effort (not only testing the app itself but interactions with other software and systems).prudent wrote: ↑Wed Sep 16, 2020 10:24 amThe current mindset in software development is to update all the time. Conceptually, if you have bugs fixed and/or new features ready to go, don't hold them back for a blockbuster update 8 months later, just roll things out as they become ready.
It is odd to have so many bug fixes in 30 year old software. I have to wonder if a release is fixing bugs they introduced in the last release. Quicken is not exactly adding a lot of new features. I wonder if these frequent updates are to make you think you are getting your subscription $$$$ worth.
On my phone, it seems every app has an update every week.
A lot of bug fixes. I highly doubt the standards used to connect to financial institutions change frequently. It would be expensive to maintain on both ends if changes were being made all the time. They may add new institutions here and there. I don't know how many financial institutions Quicken supports, but it has to be in the thousands.
