Updating the recommended release?

Recommended Posts

I am asking for a new recommended release of forge to be pushed.

 

My reasoning:

 

Several mods only update to recommended versions of forge, on the theory that if everyone is working with known, working versions, they will work together. And I can understand that forge is a moving target.

 

Right now, for example, the recommended version is just before a wildcard dictionary change that breaks the ability of EBXL and others to work with their wood planks properly. But that feature must add other abilities

 

And then other mods add things. Not just bug fixes, but features that they need. Mystcraft has two such, I believe; others have their own. These are examples of mods that needed improvements, and are not compatible with the recommended version because it is out of date.

 

Right now, there seem to be a lot of cases of mods that are not compatible with the current versions, and mods that need something more recent than recommended. And it's still, apparently, a long way off before 1.7.

 

So, can we please get a new recommended version soon?

For the future, is it possible (is there enough manpower) for forge's development to have two forks/branches -- when a new recommended build comes out, the "main" or "master" branch only gets bug fixes, rather than things that will break or alter behaviors; and the "development" branch gets the new API and things that would break mods. Then, a mod can indicate if it needs the master branch, or the dev branch, and it might be easier to tell which mods will work together.

1.7 is not a long way off, it's rather close.

We will be doing a final wrap up 1.6.4 recommended build before we switch over to 1.7 development.

Like we do for every MC version. That will be coming soon

I do Forge for free, however the servers to run it arn't free, so anything is appreciated.
