    Haven't had the email yet, spotted this on supportnet tho:

    SIMS 2008 November Main Release 2

    Iím pleased to announce that the updated November release is now available for download. It contains fixes for the following issues

    * Lesson Monitor - Take Register - Attendance and Behaviour cannot be recorded for multiple students
    * Tracking Grids - display issue
    * Assessment Manager - unable to save on a marksheet that has more than one teacher.

    Those customers who have already taken the initial November release can choose to upgrade to the updated revision (SIMS 2008 November Main 2) via SOLUS as normal.

    SIMS Learning Gateway 1 Customers: If you took the original November 2008 release then the schema number to add is 3.61.502 against schema directory 3.61.501

    Yes, I got that too - the notification would have come directly to us as we're independent, for others it will have gone to their LEA. So, to the LEA-supported people, if you haven't yet installed November, wait for the update to be released.

    I think this proves my earlier point beautifully about why I wait before installing :-)

    Someone had to install it for the issue to be noted and for you to benefit though.

    Very true - and that "someone" should work for Capita and be part of a pre-release testing team.

    That said, I still stand by my practice of letting other people go first - much like the old adage of "wait for SP1". Some people have to upgrade immediately, others want to; I don't fall into either of those categories, so I wait.

    I have extensive experience in the open source software arena and trust me internal testing can't find every single bug in every release, it relies on real users in real environments. - That said, tier 1 support is required to minimise any impact caused and we have that with SIMS so I'm happy to run upgrades immediately and deal with any repurcussions.

    I'm not saying you're wrong to wait, far from it, but I'd hate to see a world where we all did that through lack of the level of support I speak of, or through lack of confidence etc.

    I wasn't suggesting that we all wait, merely that you should wait if you a) can wait and/or b) can't afford to deal with a bad update for whatever reason. I fall into both those categories, so I'll continue to sit here on the August release.

    Not quite true. Nov 08 v2 is needed by those secondary schools who have to do school census.
