View Full Version : "Build"? Pretty random question.

What's the word for an iteration of an ajax app? "Build" is only for compiled apps, right? "Version" makes an unfinished iteration sound finished. And "iteration" just sounds pretentious.

*scratches head*

Well, you could call it a build if you wanted to. I think that MooTools calls its script a build. Also, in my mind, it doesn't really matter if it's only for compiled programs because an ajax program is still a program, but it's interpreted. See, you're BUILDING a program, right? :D

I'd go for version. If it's not done yet, make it a beta. No code is ever truly finished, but I mean if like there is still some serious work to be done. Ex:

version 1.0 beta

is pretty good for starters.

And don't be misled by build. A build can be a finished version, or a beta, but should tell you which it is, like build 1.2 beta, or if it's more or less done - just build 1.2.
