The short answer is "quite some time". I know a lot of summer builds are done right around now but I won't be finished in time for that.
Realistically, late October / early November is my target. It's a busy time for me as I'll be off to uni at the start of October and that'll put a spanner in the works for sure. Worst of all, when I leave I won't have a network to test on! :eek:
I've been taking feedback into account as I work. I forget who requested being able to move users between groups but that's in now.
To give you an idea of where I've got to, here's roughly where each component stands:
- Client Interface - 80%
- Config backend - 25%
- AD backend - 25%
- Mail backend - 100%
- Network backend- 50%
- Reports - 10%
I'll have a crack at setting up the old version this week then as i need something for the new year 7s in september and new staff. Any detailed instructions on how the best way to set it up?
Bizzle, when you get to an appropriate stage to test, let me know and I can help out.
I'll be sure to send you a beta version as soon as I get to that stage. In the meantime, I've finished work on the client interface which I think is a big improvement.
If anyone wants to give feedback on it, now's the time. Check the blog post here for information and screenshots. Feel free to leave a comment there or post here, I'll check both.
To answer a couple of questions about the design:
- Yes, it does add a transparent background :cool:
- Yes, that can be disabled ;)
- The titlebar message can be changed
- The header image can't be changed yet. If this is something enough people want, I'll change that.
Much improved, looking forward to the new version.
No suggestions, I think you have covered it.
By the header image do you mean the 'acceptable usage policy'?
If so I would personally like to simply add 'School' to the font of it as many students just thought it was a normal/internet pop-up box and get rid of it straight away!
The header image is the vista-style aurora saying "Acceptable Usage Policy". At the moment the text is part of the image but it should be easy enough to change that in future.
Looking forward to getting my hands on this like many others :D
Ah, version 2 looks much better. I look forward to the release.
Any ideas of when this will be released please?
I would like to get something in one of my schools before i go away, i could always do beta testing.
Did v2 ever get released? Looks good, something we'd pay a small fee for (I think)
I can now hopefully put a date to the release and that date is Wednesday 26th :D
Its Wednesday 26th!!!!! I have been waiting for this day with baited breath.
Is it going to happen today? PLEASE!!!!!
Haha, the wheels are in motion, the packages are uploaded to the site. I'm now switching the DNS to point at my new hosting provider so when that updates it'll be ready.
