if it breaks existing installs it *is* a bug, even if you (or anyone else) refuse to accept it.Highway of Life wrote:3.0.7 contains new content in the .htaccess, so it needs to update that file... That is why it's in the update package, that's not a bug.
code reader wrote:saying something like "we don't have to support any back-assword server configuration" just doesn't fly: we *don't* have to support "any back-assword server configuration". however, if 3.0.6 support it and we have users on it, and then 3.0.7 breaks it *we own the problem*.
if we did not support such server in the first place it would have been perfectly fine, but having 3.0.7 break perfecly good 3.0.6 installations is a regression bug - no other way around it.
