    It's all that bureaucracy - so many forms to fill out.

    In all seriousness though, this was a serious misjudgment in terms of code impact and the re-writing had to be tested thoroughly.

    Just rang up support to request the patch and they are saying they will look into deploying it...

    Has anyone actually downloaded, installed and tested the new release?

    Maybe you get different things shown depending on what you selected when signing up.

    still advisable to hold off actually running the upgrade???
    im guessing there must be a cut off where everyone needs to have it installed regardless (the upgrade and any patches there after)

    I had been holding it off for some time but our Data Manager informed me that he needs to run Census next week which requires the latest version of SIMS.

    Well unfortunately, you don't really have any choice. Census is something that has to happen. Believe me, I was trying not to update SIMS at all. Maybe they should release a "stable" version :P

    You need it for the Cenusus (due on the 16th I believe?) It's a statutory requirement and has do be done, otherwise it could affect your school's funding. I don't think your business manager would be happy very if it could not be completed on time.

    I added two vCPUs to the SIMS server after the patch. It made it usable again but annoying as it worked fine with just two, including FMS and Discover.

    A very disappointing release. Has it actually been load tested?

    SIMS is a bloated old monster reliant on old technology (mapped drives). Teachers are crying out for a simple web based register (without paying for the same feature again).

    Does anyone on here remember this happening last time they changed the homepage? How about then they used to do 6 releases a year - 3 with "new features" and 3 with fixes to the "new features". Pretty sure the census bits wasn't in the "new features" - maybe I remember the old days differently now.

    Not sure "load tested" and Capita are compatible - unless you go via a paying customer

    I'm more familiar with the re-release era. IE: SIMS Summer 2012 v1, v2, v3, v4 etc. 17 assessment patches were needed fore that release if I recall correctly!
