Yup, we had to build a Blog!

We heard that all the cool guys have one. So we thought to give you a place to find out more about what we like - not only in webdesign, but in general. Plus, here you get to be the first to see what our next WP themes will look like.

Did you know what’s the meaning behind the minor WordPress releases (like 3.7.1)?

It seems that shortly after every major release like 3.7, come at least a couple of minor releases, .1, .2 and so on. So, is there a specific meaning behind all this? Or does the WordPress team release a new version whenever they come up with something cool to add to the platform?

As it turns out, there is a bigger purpose, and it’s best described by Andrew Nacin, WordPress lead developer, in one of his comments at WordPress Tavern:

“The .1 release will always be needed to fix some bugs. Pretty much all others are security releases.

Sometimes, the .1 also contains security fixes. A .2+ release is only going to happen for security reasons if there is a serious regression that somehow wasn’t discovered before the .1 release. [...]

Generally, then: .1 is a minor release with serious bug fixes. .2 is a security release and/or a critical regression fix.”
