Thinking about a question @fuzzygel asked on a different thread… It used to be that updates were mostly things like free bug fixes, and upgrades were things like new versions or additional licenses / feature sets…
But now we have “subscriptions to updates” which are also the only way to get subsequent features, and all sorts of weirdness.
Since we’re opinionated folk, I wondered how y’all see the difference - if there even is one - in our modern context. Thoughts?
that is my understanding too. For example, updates cover 10.0 to 10.xx but upgrades will be 11.0. At least that used to be the case but I guess the line is blurring
Well, to me, update is a maintenance release and upgrade is an improvement release.
well said, you put this succinctly. Can’t agree more
The bigger the IT population gets the more vague the terminology gets.
