UBB.threads 7.6.0 Changelogs Introduction

NOTE: UBB.threads.7.6.0 was released on February 15, 2017.
At this time, UBB.threads version 7.6.0 is very much still work in progress. Its current code will change several more times before being published to the Member Area on https://www.ubbcentral.com. This *WORK IN PROGRESS* code is not available for purchase or download (other than by our current group of testers). This series of progress reports is being made public to share the development progress on UBB.threads version 7.6.0. Items may be pulled from the final release or may be reworked to have a different presentation than what is depicted in this post. This is very much WORK IN PROGRESS and not by any means "final." For 7.6.0, just about ALL of the files have been changed since 7.5.9.

In an attempt to make the ongoing development status more obvious, these changelog notes are being mirrored from UBBDev.com.

Snapshots
As a general concept which many developers follow when writing complex software, is to regularly make available "Snapshot" releases to all the testers. Snapshot builds are generated right before moving forward with another large change. They allow the testers to evaluate features. and review the software as it is being developed.

As a general source control (version control) term, a snapshot version indicates a view of the source code taken at a specific time. This is not necessarily stable or ready for full use and can be changed in the future, as opposed to a release version which is stable and should be final and ready for a general release.

Snapshots are also used where if a bug gets introduced in development, we can go backwards a few snapshot steps to see where that bug started, and then easily handle it. In addition, it makes sure that at any point in time, more than one person has access to the development code, and they can move forward with it if a fellow programmer quits or just disappears for whatever reason.
