    Hi,

    When can we expect Sitefinity Starter Kits? We are working on a project for GiveCamp on 14th January 2011 and a lot of these features are requested by my charity. It would be nice if we can get access to those templates before 14th Jan. This will help us make a decision whether to go for Sitefinity 3.7 or 4.0.

    As things stand now, Sitefinity 4.0 has nothing much to offer compared to 3.7 version.

    No Documentation ( which is frustrating ). How can we evaluate a product without documentation.
    No information on building complex modules.
    No Newsletter Module ( which is required by most companies )
    Slow compared to 3.7 version ( which is surprising. New version should be better than the previous version )

    I am sure all of these issues will be addressed in future releases, but as of now, I really need a very good reason to choose 4.0 over 3.7, which looks more robust and polished.

    Hi Larry,

    We are almost done with the Starter Kits. Gabe will follow-up over email and send you what we have so far.

    We are working to address all points identified in your post below and we will have progress in the official release coming the next week.

    Hello,

    With Sitefinity 4.1 coming out today or tomorrow, can we expect the Starter Kits to be upgraded or will they be the same?

    Thanks,
    Andrei

    Hi Andrei,

    The starter kits will be upgraded to the official version in the upcoming weeks. We need time to reflect the change of the API in the latest bits of the product, and test everything. We usually use the starter kits as part of the upgrade testing and process, but we still have to perform official upgrade once everything is finalized.

    There will be no additional functionality delivered with the next version of the starter kits as our focus in terms of developer productivity is the new Software Development Kit that is going to be released next week.

    Best wishes,
    Hristo Borisov

    Hi JH,

    We plan to deliver the intranet with our SP2 release that is scheduled for June. Unfortunately I cannot give you an exact timeframe for the Corporate starter kit as we have been outlining a lot of custom functionality in it, and it is still in development.

    Thank you for contacting us and please let me know if you have any other questions.

    All the best,
