Nice - but definitely not ‘first’ - this has been around for at least 6 years -

Correct :slight_smile: I meant the first in the new docs system.

Well, I assumed KNIME folks knew about it…! :smiley:

The new docs system does look nice too (based on this one look)

Nice documentation!

I think it would be useful to add to the guide putting .qualifier at the end of the version number. The method you’ve given for deployment won’t work if the user doesn’t manually increment the version number. Eclipse seems not to load the new jar from the dropins folder if the version number isn’t newer.

Adding .qualifier will avoid the issue of a developer not incrementing the version number.

Cheers

Sam
