Yep. I understand the frustration. The first “big” project I made quit working when the next iOS update came out (due to emojis being slightly different which introduced a bug in one of the project’s When Bumps rules)
However, I wonder if there might be an analogy to, say, iOS developers (like THT). If an app was designed for iOS 6.x (for example), it may not work correctly on iOS 11.x. I’ve a couple really old apps on my iPhone where the OS warns me “The developer needs to update this application” (paraphrased).
In much the same way, the Hopscotch Player is the OS for Hopscotch projects and perhaps we, as Hopscotch “developers”, should expect to need to update projects over time as the platform changes if we want the projects to remain relevant.
