The current plan is for bi-annual updates (hard forks) "for the forseeable future". What is the policy or plan for:
- Backward compatibility for existing daemons and wallet versions? For how long will previous versions be supported after a new release?
- Introducing auto-updating software, or end-user notification of new versions being available?
Can users rely on their software being up-to-date without having to keep checking the reddit or github sites? Is the current policy documented anywhere?
