One "small" wish:

 

I like reading change logs before installing/buying/upgrading something. For me installing a newer 1.1 update of something onto an older 1.0 without knowing what will be changed is a bit strange.

 

Theres another reason behind this request:

 

When Im deciding to buy a software I always have a look in the recent change log to see whats happening. Is it regularly updated/corrected. (maintenance)? If I see something is regularly corrected or recently updated/upgraded -> buying something for me way easier to decide than without this info. So it would help me a lot to see whats going on at the module upgrade site.. whether its in the module description or as a weekly or monthly module change post in the forum.

 

Like I decided a few years ago for the first Accordance Studienbibel GBS package instead for the SESB GBS package.. which is still a version 3.. and prbly not under development anymore. Im glad I did look into the change log back then and saw there was a lot going on with Accordance 8...

 

This is a request for the feature not for the past.. it would be nice to have this info as well for the modules and not only for the apps.

 

Ty for your great App development and your very fast bug fixing.

This is a great idea. I think this has been discussed on the forums before, and the response from Accordance has been that with upgrades from 1.0 to 2.0, for example, they tend to offer release notes on the product page itself, but something like 1.0 to 1.1 usually does not. However, I think it's a great idea to have some way to access this kind of information, no matter how big or small the update.

Interesting. But virtually all Accordance modules are based upon printed books. How often are those updated? And when they are updated, do they come with a change log? I think Accordance does a pretty good job broadcasting the changes in their software. It seems to me, though, that just as a book that was published many years ago may still be useful, if a module is produced and is not then updated, does not mean it is somehow obsolete or useless. Just my 2 cents.
