Not using Beta. Where's that leave me? Lol
Exactly where you are is where you are left. The private/beta and public/store apps can share the homescreen. There is no reason to not be using the beta. Unless you want to lag behind and wait for Roku to push the "publish" button when a new version of the app is submitted. That is the difference between the two versions. We can self-publish the beta and have it available to you immediately. The store version must be vouched for by Roku and must be reviewed by them before they allow it to be published. They can also come back at you with issues you must correct before they will publish. Getting onto the store requires time.
Right now we are in a "feature freeze" for the beta to stabilize it for promotion to store/public. That freeze should end tomorrow or the next day. Then the beta can receive the updates I have submitted for it and the beta can be published. The fix I submitted for your bug has not yet been merged into the beta nor has a new beta been published because of this freeze. It will be very shortly though.
2018 Channel Store publishing blackout dates
- Friday, November 16 — Sunday, November 25, 2018: Thanksgiving week (USA)
- Friday, December 14, 2018 — Wednesday, January 2, 2019: Winter holidays
During this December blackout the beta app can continue to be updated regularly. It is only the public/store app that must wait out the winter holiday. We will update the beta once the promotion to stable happens. Stay tuned.
