Sorry if this is a very focused question (tag-wise) but the
windows-phone-7* tags are where I spend my time.
This is presumably in response to the "7.1 beta refresh" which was released yesterday.
To further confiuse things the update reports itself as the RC but it isn't. The RC isn't being made available until August. (And I hope we don't have a similar [re-]tagging issue then!)
In all development documentation "Mango" is referred to as
7.1 but with the disclaimer that this may not be the final version number when it is publically released.
There have been a couple of marketing references (but nothing official) to
7.5 and it has been assummed that these will be the same thing.
Please note that previously (as per Tags [windows-phone-7.1] and [windows-phone-mango] are synonymous) questions tagged "windows-phone-mango" were retagged to "windows-phone-7.1"
I propose reverting the use of
7.5 to use
7.5 doesn't have any official meaning (yet?). If it later (v mango +1?) comes to mean something else it could be misleading.
Questions tagged as
7.1 when asked and relating to beta issues could cause confusion if they are fixed in the release version (7.5?) but all questions are grouped by tag.
If someone really wanted we could create a
windows-phone-7.1-beta-refresh tag for specific issues but I suspect that keeping these with the
7.1 questiosn will be fine.
If the final release has a different version number (7.5?) then all will be fine. If not, then existing questions could be retagged to
The tag wiki's for both tags (7.1 & 7.5) are both out of date but it makes sense to
I'm keen to avoid a retag war and want to understand if similar things have come up before? (and if so what was done?)
Are there other areas/subjects/topics where specific tags have been created for every version number?
