This is so weird, I get emails through of my own posts, but I did not get your post @Markus. Is it under my control this emailing set-up, or does Telerik needs to check it out? I wish I could switch off emails of my own posts, since I already know that I have posted something on the thread.
Yes, @Markus, Sitefinity 4.3 was a very good step in the right direction. I was quite pleased with the Performance gained in that version. But it is not there yet (I mean far from 3.7, in other words the glory days). So I am very eager for another at least 20% from somewhere. That will make me happy.
Upgrading it for basic websites on the net is different than upgrading it in the industry that we are deploying Sitefinity in. We have to go through loads of paperwork (test specs signed, risk assessments, fall-back strategies, etc) to get through an upgrade, is not a lot of fun and at least a week worth of work. We can't say "Oops, please come back later...", it has to work. Therefore, I am not thinking to go through with 4.4.
I must say that Sitefinity 4.3 was more stable as well. It increased my confidence greatly. I am very happy about that, and I would and still am recommending Sitefinity to anyone that cares about CMSes. I think it is a great product.
So is that when the de-coupling will happen then? At version 5.0? I cant wait for the de-coupling to happen, because I think that will provide the greatest boost of performance. I think that will be a great turning point.
