I’m pleased to announce that we solved all critical problems last night. Today and this weekend will be spent on final testing and verification. We are planning to release early next week - on Monday or Tuesday.
On behalf of Sitefinity team, please, accept our sincere apologies for this delay. We were working around the clock to make this release happen and were hit by a series of problems in the last hours before delivery. Going forward we will devote more attention to risk planning and mitigation.
We also fully recognize the importance of timely and open communication. In the midst of our efforts to solve the we did not provide you with clear indication of what was going on. We will be more open with our expected release dates and delays from now on.
For those of you interested in release details, a preview of Release Notes is available on this link. Feel free to comment or ask questions. Unfortunately, an internal build is not possible due to a limitation of our licensing system which doesn’t allow releasing internal build for a new product version (4.1.).
For all of you with late client projects because of our delay, please, mention that in your tickets and we will try to treat your requests with great urgency and help you catch up with the delays.
Now that Q1 is nearly here let me share our plans for the coming months:
We have collected your feedback and are planning to act on it very quickly in Q2. To achieve this, we are growing the team and improving our processes. Going forward we will place more focus on risk allocation and testing processes so that we can deliver with precision.
As always, your ideas and participation in the community will be followed and taken into consideration.
Thanks for your continued support!
