Is it better to jump on to creating production apps using phoenix 1.3 RC or proceed with 1.2 for now?
1.2 has better resources, blog posts and generally more users. I am already working with 1.2.
Most features I want to try out already has excellent libraries - like coherence, etc.
So should I wait it out a few more months, while 1.3 ‘settles in’ ?
If you are already in production stick to 1.2 there, maybe preparing a bigger upgrade to 1.3 in the background.
If you are preparing a platform that isn’t in proud yet, then it depends on how fast you want to go into prod.
Good idea about preparing for 1.3 in the background. I am still in dev but implemented part of the features already.
How about if I am planning to go into production in say 2 months…
Just need a beta version of my app (signing on users, access an external API, visualize simple data from API), but still…is it safer to launch in 1.2
For a beta I’d even more bet on a stable version. It’s easier to sort out bugs that aren’t yours…
