Bryan: Anyhow, there are rumblings of the RC release date being pushed back (RE @Alison Gilles). I am in the same boat here. Do we know when the RC will be released? I need to know because I too am trying to launch a project within the next couple of weeks.
The RC release is scheduled for this Thursday.
Phil: I hope all this works out in the end, I hope that I can find some clients that are ok with starting at $1,999 but I won't be rushing to upgrade any of my current sites to 4.0 as I can't go backwards in features (i.e. no newsletter functionality). I'll just have to cross my fingers that no major security holes are found after SF3.x is no longer supported.
Phil, thanks for the kind words. Regardless of your choice, we're not going to abandon you or any of our customers. Beyond that, I can only encourage you to contact firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them your challenges. My role here is to broadly communicate our position and help facilitate a constructive conversation. Sales is empowered to help you discover solutions that are specific to your needs.
Brad: I understand that Analytics and perhaps a few other features will be added to various editions- is there anyway that the concurrent users will change, or are they completely cemented?
Nothing is set in stone. We've already made some compromises. Constructive feedback, like this helps. I would encourage everyone with concerns to contact email@example.com and tell them your challenges.
Neil: When the final release is hear how will the login required for contentEditable elements within the browser affect concurrent logins.
I'm not sure I understand. Can you provide more information?
bleutiger: Could you chime in and just say "got the survey" or "no survey here"...I am just curious. And for Telerik. I am not trying to be a jerk here. I am genuinely curious how many people got this survey and I would love to have Telerik publish the results of the survey as well
I wasn't involved with the survey and I don't know all the details. However, in general we conduct a lot of surveys and often use only a sampling of our customers to avoid bothering everyone constantly. This is a fairly common technique.
Beyond that, I'm not really sure where you're going with this. Are you suggesting that your demographic was under-represented? Or that our sampling wasn't big enough? Or that we worded the email or survey poorly? Or misread the results? Or...
Hopefully you can understand why this isn't a conversation we're going to have in public. We trust our employees and nothing good will come from me trying to dig up information about a survey conducted months ago. The new pricing is based on a lot research and a lot of factors. The survey is only part of this.
