Today Light Point Security has reached another important milestone. We have just finished the 0.7 version of Light Point Web. While this is still a private beta version, and not ready for public consumption, we have taken a big step in that direction.
With Light Point Web, we use a lot of open source code. However, some of this code is released only as a zip, not the ability to pull directly from their version control system. This can cause a lot of problems if you are trying to use this code to build a product of your own. Here is how I recommend solving these problems.
New versions of software are great. Fixed Bugs. New Features. Whats not to love? When you are building a system, each new version is a risk. Did they break anything? Will everything still play together nicely?
