    Spring Release 2011 is out

    The SIMS Spring release is out and available on SOLUS 2, so thought i'd start the customary thread to discuss any issues.

    One thing to point out, the CD iso download links are published as part of the notice on SupportNet and password protected. It's not supposed to be public domain, so you'll have to go there or request from support if you need it.

    Not attempted it yet, am awaiting the usual "Argh it broke my.............and now everyone is shouting at me" messages.

    Can probably afford some downtime on Friday or one evening next week. Then it is time to upgrade to SQL2K8R2 on a 64bit platform for us.

    I have to wait until Capita upgrade Hosted SLG but as it's report wrinting time and Easter is a week and a half away I think this will be an "Over the holidays" job. It willl also give me a change to get the new version of SOLUS 3 installed and see what happens.

    Plus I can let all the eager beevers find the problems and give Capita time to patch them

    This. I'd get stabbed if I tried to upgrade SIMS at the moment.

    Sorry Guys,
    Just for once we are not going to bother updating until Easter (just over two weeks) and then we can install Discover shortly after (hopefully also during Easter!)
    Normally I want the release asap!

    Have bad feelings about this release.

    Two of us are unable to upgrade on training setups.

    Aren't you allowed on SupportNet - you can get the downloadables. It's taken me all day to download, only to find, i actually want the installables, which is a different download. ARGH.

    hope to test tomorrow.

    It's available on SupportNet do you have access?
    There's no point reproducing here, it's available in word or pdf format, and there are also notes for all other modules , fms, solus 3-3, slg, ampark etc.

    I can email it to you if you don't have access.

    I think the LA like to do various tests before rolling it out to schools so I'm happy to wait for them. Plus like mentioned I usually wait for the 'It broke my...' before upgrading.

    There is a problem updating the Test Data so it's not been an easy day. I wiped mine and started from scratch, which obviously doesn't help with running through any upgrade problems. But I had a server to rebuild and I'm out tomorrow.

    I too am awaiting the nod from the LA but may wait until April when I can download Discover and test.

    Anyone got any updated specs for client workstations running Discover?
