    I've not heard anything yet, although the night is still young! I needed to migrate SOLUS 3 to a new server today so I could have done with it. Hey ho.

    Aye, was rather hoping to be able to get it on a testbed on the 14th but clearly wasn't to be. Now there's another exams day looming, another day I don't really want to be touching Sims!

    With the awful problems we've had this week with our servers we are going to wait until after the GCSE results before introducing another variable.

    Thanks for the update, Phil. I understand your position and decision to delay the release.

    The reason we're keen on getting our hands on 3.6 is the number of server migrations taking place during the holidays. We're having to leave old servers in place and running as we can't yet migrate SOLUS 3, which means extra work later on.

    If you need any help with pre-release testing, you need only ask.

    Please pass on our thanks to those tasked with getting SOLUS 3 back up and running after the server failures; it can't have been an easy week.

    John thanks for the offer. It's all ready to roll out but unfortunately I don't think we can parallel run.

    Thought that would be the case, doesn't make things much easier :/ Certainly hope it's here before summer 2. Both will now, joyfully, have to wait until the new term

    sorry folks - i have a quick question about SQL versions...

    so - SIMS and FMS need to run on SQL 2012 by the summer next year, so I've heard - but what about Solus 3? Does that need to run on a seperate 2008 instance?

    At the moment, SOLUS 3 doesn't run on SQL 2012. However, I don't know how much success people have had getting SOLUS to work via a different instance so far.

    I'd suggest sticking with 2008 R2 for now. And switch to 2012 in the future.

    OK, thanks a lot for the reply - do you need Solus to run on a seperate instance, or can it run on the same one as SIMS and FMS? Sorry for all the questions.

    You'd use the same instance.

    I'd say hold fire for the 23rd August for Solus 3.6 but I'm sure there'll be another reason for it to be held back.

    23rd, release day (again). 9:30 and all's quiet. Come on, Capita - could do with actually getting this done!

    Ok, so the release notes have just come up (although they're dated yesterday? Nice try!)
    They seem to read as if you must install Solus 3.5 beforehand.

    Would anyone from Capita like to furnish us with the how-to on that, being on Server 2012? Any chance of the ISOs today?
