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.

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.

Hasn't been release to us from our LA yet so couldn't even if I wanted to .

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.

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

- Rep Power
No problems with upgrading out test systems here (On the Capita Green Abbey dataset) Planning to upgrade schools just before the Easter Holidays here in Somerset

Few done so far, 1 via SOLUS3.

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?
