DolphinPro is currently at version 7.3. It may seem like not that far from 7, but, in reality, our "second-digit" updates always include hundreds of improvements. Some people find this versioning confusing, and don't think much about upgrading from, say, 7.1 to 7.3. This is about to change.
Starting from the next major release, we will be numbering them according to "FEATURE-UPDATE.PATCH" convention. So, whenever we include any enhancements, the first number will change. If it only comes with bug-fixes, the second number will change. Therefore, instead of DolphinPro 7.4, you will see Dolphin 10, and then relatively quickly 11, 12, 13, 14, etc. For follow-up service updates, patches, security updates that don't add any new features you will see 10.1, 10.2, etc. Only the Dolphin 7.3.1 will be released under the old scheme.
DolphinPro 10 is going to be the first LEAP release. LEAP is a focused effort to bring platform-wide improvements in 4 main areas:
Clear and straightforward instructions for both site admin and end users, guides, tips.
Immediate user involvement, virality, sharing, instant connections.
Efficient site configuration, content management and analytics.
Site loading speed, browser-load reduction, server load optimisation.
We expect to deliver LEAP project in three subsequent stages - version releases - 10, 11 and 12. As a result all DolphinPro package componeånts - modules, apps, platform, integrations, templates and languages - will receive an update according to the LEAP focus points.
We expect all the updates to come with gradual changes, without serious disruption of 3rd-party extensions compatibility. As usual, we will be offering free update service to all paying subscribers and full DIY update packs with instructions to those hosting independently.
