Ohjelmistoversion kuolema

Sovelluskehittäjänä käytän paljon muiden luomia pieniä kirjasto-ohjelmia. Niille yleensä ei ole määritelty EOLaa (End Of Life) kuten tärkeämmille ohjelmistoille. Joudun siis tutkimaan versionumeroa. Milloin ja miten säännöllisesti kirjastoa on viimeksi päivitetty, onko riippuvuuksia tai yhteystietoja. Osakemarkkinoiden tapaan tämä historiatieto ei ole tae tulevasta.
