I was going to get Meteor 1.3 in production, but unfortunately I bumped into a few problems that prevented me from doing that. To be able to put new implementations in production, I need to continue with 1.2 for a while.
To maintain backwards compability, it would be easiest solution to prevent autoupdate. However, I can’t remove autoupdate package. What is the suggested way to prevent autoupdate? I don’t want to prevent the reload, but rather disable prevent autoupdate completely.
PS. Is hot code push exactly the same as autoupdate?
What issues have you ran into while updating to 1.3. I think it would be worth your time to upgrade meteor as the updates to mobile/Cordova are worth it. I struggled updating our app to 1.3 from 1.2, but it definitely worth it in the end.
@npolet: I also think that Meteor 1.3 is totally worth it but I have been jammed with Meteor 1.3 for weeks, and I had to reimplement all new features on top of Meteor 1.2 to be able to release an update.
I really hope that I could release the next update built on top of Meteor 1.3. Most of the problems are just a pain in the ass during development, but white screen of death is a blocker that prevents me from releasing update built on top of Meteor 1.3. I have pasted some relevant logs here.
If someone has good ideas, I’d be more than happy to hear about them!
