I have been really suffering through Sitefinity upgrades, which is a
topic i have already posted in here. However one other thing that I
think would really help. We should be able to download each version of
sitefinity - BIN, Sitefinity folder, web.config, rad controls, etc -
without using any kind of installer. The installer takes a long time
to run and overwrites previous installs of the same version.
Furthermore, these should be available for each version in the download
areas of the site. I should be able to download just the core
sitefinity files as a ZIP for 3.0, 3.0 sp1, 3.0sp2, 3.1 etc. Currently
this is available for some versions but not for others. Having these
available for downloads would really help with the upgrade process.
I have to say that after working with Sitefinity for 2 years, the upgrade procedure has really left a bad taste in my mouth and made me question whether I will recommend Sitefinity to future clients.
