Reverting from Managed Release to Managed Beta


We;ve been developing some apps as beta releases, and are ready to move
to a managed release.

However, I get the impression that once you do this, you are forever more
locked down in terms of the changes that can be made to custom objects.

Given that we want the flexibility to develop the application in different ways
in the future, how can we best get around this restriction?


It is possible to revert from managed released to managed beta if the package has not been installed anywhere. Currently you have the option of creating a managed base package with an unmanaged extension if you want to get the benefits of upgrades, license management, etc for part of you package and want to make changes to another portion of your package. Managed packages will not be locked forever; deprecation, deletion, and refactoring will be coming in future releases.
