Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2010-11-25 23:32:17 UTC
I believe inactive "Experimental Features" should be invisible in menu as long as they are invisible. for details and as example please see bug 31816.
Comment 1 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2010-11-25 23:32:39 UTC
What do you think?
Comment 2 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2010-11-26 00:24:48 UTC
More meaningful summary
Comment 3 Olivier Hallot 2010-12-29 16:33:32 UTC
Make the "Enable experimental (unstable) features" hideable from the UI, possibly thru an XCU configuration file.

Motivation: In large deployments with tight IT control such option as a source of troubles for the help desk, where software stability is a must. This option can spark user curiosity and he/she may break the installation by ill-behaved (unstable) features.

confirmed as valid request.

Currently the Macro Recorder gets disabled if unstable features are disabled.
It should be removed from the menu in this case.

[This is an automated message.]
This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Comment 6 Joel Madero 2012-06-08 09:57:07 UTC
I'm going to mark this as NEW again as I think it's a valid request and it was automatically set as NEEDINFO.
