Changes with potential Customer impact

Modified on Wed, 10 Jul at 2:27 PM

This article outlines changes that Hopp is considering, planning or has implemented in the Hopp software that may require development or other effort beyond normal refactoring in connection with a new release. 

Impactful changes of this kind are in fact rare, but when they on occasion do occur, this articles serves at a way for Hopp to make our customers aware in good time and leave ample time to react.

Whether effort is actually required by a given customer depends on the change it self and also whether the change is relevant for the customer installation. For instance, a change the Hopp public interface for a given to a given extension is only relevant for customers that have implemented an instance of the given extension.

Other changes may be of wider impact, especially changes that changes the context in which Hopp executes. For instance changes to authentication methods.

Changes fall in 3 different groups reflected in the sections of this article:

Under considerationHopp is considering a change that may have consequences for customers.

Hopp invites customer feedback and may modify or abandon the planned change as a result.

PlannedThe change is planned or under implementation.

Hopp will always give customers amble notice of upcoming changes. Normally a minimum of 3 months.

In specific instances Hopp may be forced to implement a change with shorter notice - for instance if the change is required to mitigate a serious security risk or if the change is considered to be of minor impact.
