I have recently downloaded ID Debug version and installed it, before i start using this i thought i would ask a question here.
is there any difference between debug version and release version of ID? if my main intention is to evaluate to see if ID server has the features that i am looking for, does it make any difference which version i use?
i reviewed documentation provided in 'intro_to_indesign_cs3_server.pdf' and this document applies to the debug version too?
AFAIK there is no functional difference server debug and release. You may find things slower with the debug build due to additional checks performed, and since additional checks means more/different code it is possible for bugs to exist in one version but not the other - though I don't know of anywhere this applies.
I'm not sure from the question though - are you asking for the difference between InDesign server debug/release or the difference between InDesign debug and InDesign Server release - there are a whole load of differences there...
