|Summary||0000171: Old I7 versions not available on website.|
|Description||I was looking for an old version of I7, which I need to compile an old project, and was unable to find it on the website. The website only goes back to 4S08, but should contain links to all previous versions so that old story files can be re-compiled in the original version of I7 that they were written in. |
If the older versions are not available, then whenever an old project needs to be rebuilt you will also need to do a full code review to ensure that it compiles in the latest version of I7, followed by another round of testing to ensure that there have been no breakages. Being able to recompile on the original I7 version removes the need to do either of these time-consuming tasks.
They don't need to be given such prominence on the download page - an 'older versions' link to a separate page would be enough - but they need to be present somewhere!
