@MikeHoneychurch asked in chat what we should do with questions that have been tagged as [bugs] now that version 9 was released. Some of these bugs might be fixed in version 9. This post is to start a discussion for deciding this.

I propose that:

  • If the bug is still present, tag it with the affected versions (most likely and )

  • If the bug is fixed:

    • Tag it with only (possibly earlier if there's a special reason to do so)

    • Add a visible (bolded?) note in the question explaining that the bug was fixed in version 9. (I didn't propose adding an answer because many of these will already have accepted answers.) I think this information is going to be useful for people who might still be on earlier versions.

I went ahead and did this in this question: Issue with PathGraph

(A possible reason not to do this too quickly is to avoid the front page being spammed with edits.)

  • maybe post the notice in the answer instead of the question... not everyone reads the question thoroughly, but they're bound to read an accepted answer, especially if they're looking for a bugfix

    @rm-rf That makes sense. Wherever it's more clear/noticeable.
