I have used Agile and similar. We had releases measured in months though not weeks. This is also a 20+ year old mature product. I don't really see many new features in these releases. How many bugs can there be?Kenkat wrote: ↑Fri May 15, 2020 11:38 amSome software development methodologies such as agile do advocate frequent releases. I have been working on a long term software project and we do releases every three weeks; it took some time to get a team in a good cadence but it is working really well overall. I suspect they are using something similar at Quicken.michaeljc70 wrote: ↑Fri May 15, 2020 9:15 amI don't know if it is supposed to impress people with the number of updates when you are on a subscription to think you are getting your money's worth or what. However, having worked in software development for decades, it is actually slightly alarming to me. Even if proper testing is being done, it generally isn't cost effective to have frequent releases and often corners are cut. Sometimes a quick release is needed to fix something the last release broke.
Anecdotally, I'm not finding any more issues than with the Quicken 2017 non-subscription I had but I am not really seeing many more things I use fixed that had problems before (and there are some new problems). Overall, it is working pretty well for me though.
I notice on my phone apps some will update every few days if you allow it. I have auto-update off and do it from time to time manually.
