Welcome to the first-ever Lightmeter Control Center Release Candidate — 1.0.0-RC1. This release provides an opportunity to test the latest changes before the final release of 1.0.0, scheduled for this week.
The full list of merge requests and commits is on GitLab.
The best way to test this Release Candidate is to use it as you normally use Control Center, in a non-critical environment. Known issues with this release are documented in the README.
Upgrading to an RC release is the same as for any other Control Center release.
Downgrading is also supported, but because downgrading depends upon features which may not yet be stable, successful downgrading should not be relied upon.
Features which are user-facing can be easily tested using the Web-UI — see the associated GitLab issues for the expected behaviour and screenshots (sometimes) of how they are intended to look.
Where back-end changes affect a particular component (such as Internationalisation, parsing, etc.), deliberately using functionality which depends on those components provides good opportunities to test for regressions.
Any found issues should be reported to GitLab, clearly stating the version number of the copy of Control Center that you’re using (e.g. 1.0.0-RC1).
