Consider that 'minor bugs' or needed enhancement have to be fixed/included too, and this could damage old working code. Unfortunatly, that's the way software is developed on this planet! ;)

Finished? I've a (short) list of things that I would like to be addressed or improvements that would simplify my life. And after those are included, I will have new ones for sure. Updating is always a risk, but you can't stop evolving. Put that no one will try new IBO subrelease... who will do the test? And if one day you will need the IBO 4.99zz version that is the only one that works with XP service pack 34? If you never tested the intermediate steps, you never reported bugs that are unique to your way of doing things...
I understand your fear, it's mine too, but I want IBO to evolve because it's the tool upon most of my work is based, and since Jason is really open for contributions, I want to help.
So there mut be way between no upgrading and panic because new bugs...
Anyway, this explains why there are still so mani COBOL programs still working around ;)
