WiX Online Meeting 270 Highlights

Tuesday, October 31, 2023 by Bob Arnson

Happy Halloween! Over the years, WiX has had three releases on Halloween: WiX v3.8 RC, WiX v3.9, and WiX v3.10.1. There are no new releases today, but not for lack of trying. Did we used to intentionally target Halloween when releases were close or were those release dates just massive coincidences? Perhaps we'll never know. (Totally intentional. --Ed.)

In today's meeting, we triaged new issues. That's it. There was no late-night livestream to report on. There was no pending release that needed its status reported.

WiX v4.0.2 Released

Wednesday, September 13, 2023 by Bob Arnson

WiX v4.0.2 is now available. WiX v4.0.2 contains fixes for a handful of bugs serious enough to warrant another point release of WiX v4. Half of those bugs came about from my work with a FireGiant customer moving to WiX v4, including work to take advantage of the new WiX v4 build pipeline to replace extensions and utilities that built on top of WiX v3. We're grateful for their help uncovering these bugs. Remember that FireGiant customers get the benefit of guaranteed bug fixes for WiX and, for some, the priceless opportunity to work directly with me.
