    Hello everyone,

    This is just to inform you that Service Pack 1 has been rescheduled for Tuesday, 26th of June. We decided to postpone it for a couple of days as we want to fix several other issues and add some more improvements to page multilingual support.
    We deeply apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience and understanding.

    Yours sincerely,
    The Sitefinity team

    Hi!

    I do not want to push, but today is 26th of June! ;-) Is SP1 finished? I just downloaded v3 today and might wait for sp1 before I run into problems...

    Just another question. The roadmap for 3.1 says, that there will be a forum module. Might it be possible to test a "beta" version of it beforehand?

    Greetings

    Hi all,

    We stumbled across some unexpected issues and need one more day to complete the service pack.
    Sorry for making you wait again.

    Rebecca,

    We are heavily evaluating your software for a large project coming up and I'm curious about a couple of things:

    1. When you first posted a release date for SP1 why not make it the 29th? Why give a date and miss it (this is twice now right)? Just makes you look bad and give me less confidence in your company.

    2. The main page of Sitefinity states "Inspired by end-users. Built for developers" yes you don't even have developer documentation available. Is this false advertisting? Or is this another sign that your company is unable to deliver on its promises?

    Sorry to make this a negative post but I see potential in this software and these are very disappointing signs.

    I am in the same boat as tholtermann.  We are evaluation what product to use with future clients.  I really like what I've seen so far with Sitefinity, but it's difficult for me to make a case internally when I don't have a Developer's Guide to allow me to evaluate development effort.  Can the documentation be released separately from SP1?

    Dear all,

    We've never intended to airbrush reality; it's just that we couldn't possibly know how much had been in store for us. When we first announced the SP1 date, everything looked good.

    As for the developer documentation, the only reason why we removed it from the installation is that it wasn't complete and had too many inaccuracies that may have been misleading. This is the only time we did not provide the Developer manual and it will certainly be back into the Service pack.

    Once again, we deeply apologize for the delay.

    Sincerely yours,
    Rebecca

    Does one more day mean today the 27th? or the 28th?

    Hi Everyone,

    I understand your frustration with this and yes, Telerik needs to work on their expectation game, but believe me, it's worth the wait and what they do release tends to be great!  So stick in there

    Hi Rebecca,

    Those of us who were in on the Beta testing of v3 were there for a lot of those delays.  I don't think we felt you were trying to airbrush reality or mislead us, but I also don't think you guys build in nearly enough time for the unexpected.  I would suggest that you should have internally planned for a release of June 21st, but announced to the world that you would release on July 15th (for example).  If you make the June 21st date, everyone is stoked.  If you have to push it a week or so, no problem, you're still WAY ahead of schedule.

    Under sell, over deliver!  If you order a Dell, they tell you it'll ship in 3+ weeks, but it usually ships within 3-4 days.  People are always psyched to get their computers soooo much sooner than they had expected and it's very rare that they ever ship after the 3 week period, so people are never disappointed.

    Does that make sense? 

    Ben

    Hi!

    Got SP1! Thanks! But what I miss or did not find yet is a change-document or something like that. My problem ist that I do not know, what I should copy to my existing V3 projects without breaking them. Did you change something in the sample sites too? If so, what was changed? My projects are based on these two sample sites...

    Hi again!

    I just saw the other posting, where you described some of the changes. I just try around with it and maybe have more concrete questions later :-)
