/ inaccurately announces Unicode support

Postby saimhe » Wed, 13 Jul 2005, 13:18

The main page
Main nnBackup advantages:

• full Unicode support

However when the user tries /download.shtml, 2.28 is called the "latest release" there and... therefore will be downloaded among with expectation that it supports Unicode. It doesn't, of course:

Now we are into active development of the new-generation Unicode-aware nnBackup (ver 3.0) which will be backward compatible with it's predecessor (all nnBackup 2.0 command line options will be supported in the forthcoming nnBackup 3.0). Note, please: the new nnBackup 3.0 will not work on Win95/98/ME. So, if you still use one of these operating systems you should stick with nnBackup 2.28.

/ should at least indicate something like "• Unicode support (NOTE: v3.0+ only)"

I don't think this is a problem, just because the nnBackup 3.01b8 is available for download and is pretty stable. So there is nothig wrong we are announcing the Unicode support,

Does it mean that possible confusion is not your problem? :)

(however, I agree that when 3.0+ officially becomes "stable", nothing will be wrong)

Until now there were no support requests with such an issue. So I hope this is not a real problem for our users! :) And, BTW, we are strongly encouraging users to try available beta. I even wrote abut this in our FAQ.

If you do not want to use a beta, just wait a little. I think 3.0 will become a stable release really soon.
