What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

In Remove Alternative openID it is said that this feature will be included in next SO deployment. So, how often are new SO versions deployed?

Almost everyday I far as I seen, and sometimes many times a day. –  YOU Apr 23 '11 at 14:54

You can watch the revision number at the bottom of the screen to see when a new build goes out; meta is on rev 2011.4.23.5, so there's been 5 builds today –  Michael Mrozek Apr 23 '11 at 15:23

Unless it's an odd week (when the team is at MIX, or holidays for example) we're usually building every day, and often several times a day. To be accurate, we're probably even building then, since we're all a bit insane.

As a general rule, we don't build during peak traffic. We try to cause as little interruption as possible. If there's a high-impact bug or change that needs to be fixed/made, we'll make an exception.

also, meta.so gets built first in all cases so it is always bleeding edge. –  Jeff Atwood Apr 24 '11 at 5:27
    
Does that mean there is a new feature or bug fix every day? –  Richard Tingle Jul 11 '13 at 20:32
    
@RichardTingle yep, lately we're averaging about 5 builds a day so deployment of new features/changes/fixes is pretty rapid...and that's just the websites. –  Nick Craver Jul 11 '13 at 22:40
