1.8.1, 1.8.2 or something? - Padoverc - 06-02-2019 08:32 AM

I know there are a ton of buildbot builds showing how much progress has been made, but those used to make minor releases to stable as well. Now PPSSPP Gold gets one update per major release, and that kind of shafts them since now they need two apps installed to keep up. Older versions, 1.1-1.5 seemed just fine spitting out a stable mini update every hundred+ buildbot changes, so it's not like this is new territory.

The only reason some release versions had iterations wasn't "minor releases", but hotfixes that came soon after for things that were horribly broken by the initial .0 release.
The fact 1.8.0 is last release version after such a long time simply means there were no critical errors introduced in that release which would have to be instantly fixed and that's a good thing.

Most new things doesn't get added until fixes for major faults of the release version are pushed, so those .1/.2 etc. were never really adding much if anything important, you just were confused all this time as you never were "up to date" by using release versions only. Also gold version is just a form of donation, you don't have to install it at all even if you bought it if all you care is to use latest version asap, either build ppsspp on your own or use buildbot versions.
