While I really like the 1.6 changes in theory, I still consider it a beta, looking at the number of issues on github and my personal findings (SSR problems…).
I personally believe all efforts should be made to get the stability back and fix bugs before moving on a new version.
I don’t really like the changes made to windows version, especially the fact we now have to use chocolatey…
By the way if I want to install Meteor 1.5.x on a new Windows machine, how would I do it with chocolatey since MDG removed the old installer entirely ?
Meteor is so good, I just don’t want it to lose quality now. I planned to use it in the near future and all these changes made life harder (too many issues, setup to change…) so I just assumed we are in Beta and got back on 1.5.x which works well for me, waiting for the stability to come back on 1.6.
