Guidance around releases

Aug 23, 2010 at 4:41 PM

With codeplex you can have one release, which you just update everytime there is new release or you can have multiple releases.

Is there any guidance around how to use releases correctly?

I am especially interested in download count and Click Once.

We generally recommend using a new release per version. With ClickOnce, users are not affected since old ClickOnce releases are "archived" but the endpoint is not changed, thus they get prompted to download the new version at the next startup. Using a new release per version also allows users to effectively rate versions correctly, ie if you have a really bad version - newer versions will not be affected by the negative perception.
