Software release process

As noted before, it is not good practice to install an undocumented software feature which does not display an alert when activated.

Especially as the undocumented feature has obviously no documentation on how to to turn it off. Which you won't need because you don't know about it, let alone know that it has been activated.

Noting that an alert would be displayed should an optional extra have been installed.

Noting further that the supplier should have been well aware what percentage of the target install had in fact had the optional extra installed.

Still, the Alpha testing by end users does seem to have highlighted the problem and a fix is being rushed out.

I haven't seen anywhere so far that the software fix will be accompanied by the additional (so far optional) instrumentation to warn when the software is active.
