    Or in this case you and Ming (...the merciless), which is a name i've not heard used for Capita before, but each to their own.

    Someone will do it first, and they'll probably be someone who frequents these forums.
    Someone will do with a mixed economy of XP / 7, again hopefully they're someone on here.
    Some poor soul will risk their arm running it on Server 2003.

    TBH - I was just a bit surprised that nobody had already posted a specific "Autumn Upgrade" thread (the other one is a bit off topic) and figured I'd pop one up.
    Usually it's covered in the main release thread - which is in the sticky list at the moment, though no-one has replied. Then if there is a major infarction / re-release a separate thread springs up, but it's best kept in the main one for the release.

    I'll be waiting for confirmation of all patches being re-written, because i might need some of them. Well, i know i need some of them.
    Will probably stick on SQL 2008 for the time being and save the migration fun for xmas or easter.

    Its available here through SOLUS2, but with Capitas reputation of messing this up at every release, I'm certainly not going to be the one doing their testing for them...

    I'd leave it until at least the end of the week. By then, you should at least know if there are issues, even if they haven't been resolved yet.

    I'm just giggling at the title "autumn (winter)".

    I consider that (equinox to solstice) mid autumn to mid winter, not sure if that's correct in terms of when the leaves actually fall...

    What are the current odds at the moment for the number of releases?

    One single release, that will fix everything.

    Thought you were going to say "One release to rule them all!" Lol. Actually ONE is a dirty word, I better go wash my hands for typing such a sinful word.

    I've applied it on the capita test school databases - it went through fine (on SOLUS 3.6.94 in SQL 2012 on Server 08R2) - to be honest you'd expect it to be OK on those!!

    Seems stable on our XP clients.
    The new documentation centre is nice.
    The improvements to "Homepage group configuration" look worth a shot if your SIMS Server is still suffering memory issues since the homepage changes.
    The small change to the wording at the top of a new Census return is nice, includes the year as well as term.
    Fileset 150 auto imported OK
    Discover seems no different but I note you can copy graphs and rename the legend on user defined graphs.

    Overall - it's looking good to me... ...so far.

    That doesn't count. For a mention in dispatches it has to be live data. ;-)
