Both issues you reported in your first post are indeed present in the SDK. One of them (putting latest XAP files in the ClientBin folder) is going to be fixed for the upcoming SP1. The other one (error when clicking permissions) is an issue related to the registration of custom modules or controls and their permissions. We need more time to investigate. Since there is not much time before we release the service pack, we probably won't have time for a fix until then. We will definitely provide one for the release following the service pack.
As for the issues you raise about the Intranet sample, you are right about all of them. This sample was created for an earlier version of Sitefinity. We've done a lot of improvements in the product since then, but could not catch up with fixes for this particular sample, as it involves quite a lot of code that needs to be updated. Please accept our apologies for this.
We are also aware that the Intranet Starter Kit may not provide value if used in a real intranet scenario. We've decided to create a brand new starter kit, instead of spending a lot of effort on improving the existing one. We are launching a Quantum Computers Starter kit for version 4.3.
That said, if you have specific scenarios from the Intranet sample that you want covered, please be specific and we can help you implement them.
Thank you for bringing up all the issues.
