Version 3 FAQs
I'll continue to update this list. I just wanted to get something up here quick. You ask questions in comments field below and I'll incorporate them into the page with answers. No, I won't make you ask "frequently" ... we'll just assume
others have this question too :)
- When will the final release be available? On October 30, 2007. Please see the
roadmap for more information about the release date and what will be released.
- Will v3 support "round-tripping"? The short answer is no. The longer answer will tell you why you don't actually want it. The main reason you don't want it is due to the fact that it is so hard to implement that if we did it, it
is all you would get. In other words, we would spend so much time building it that we wouldn't have the time to build any real guidance. Keep in mind, patterns & practices is not a "tools" team - we're a guidance team (that's another
reason you'll hear us talk about "automated guidance" and not "tools"). To read more about round-tripping, I would highly recommend
Jezz's post on the subject. He's talking about his EFx factory, but we largely see eye-to-eye on this topic. Good post Jezz!
