    Will you ever learn?

    Take the first date, add 14. Wait a bit, add 7 (number approximate) that will give you some idea of the real release date. Add 10 for the safe update date.

    So, who broke what majorly then? There was no feedback or news on SupportNet that the date was changing?! Even on the 4th the pre-release notes still said for release COB on 30th!

    @PhilNeal or anyone at Capita... can you enlighten us as to whats happening?

    There is a notice. It relates to the SWC and contracts.

    Then you must get yourself down to a SIMS conference to see Phil in his Linen suit.

    As previously communicated in a SupportNet news item, the guidance we have received from the DfE in relation to the treatment of staff contracts in the School Workforce Census (SWC) has recently changed. Now we have had further clarification, we need to resolve an issue within the School Workforce Census (SWC) software so that school contract data is reported correctly. This requires us to change the SWC software and consequently it means there will be a delay the Summer Release.


    The new date for the Summer Release will be Monday 11th July 2011. We apologise for any inconvenience that this change of date might cause.



    We have also identified an issue in the Exams Organiser software that concerns the correct accounting for Double Award GCSEs in the school performance summary reports. We will be including a fix for this issue in the SIMS 2011 Summer Release. As this will affect the August GCSE exam results series schools will need to have taken the SIMS 2011 Summer Release before they run any result analysis routines. In addition, we will also be releasing the fix as a patch, compatible with the SIMS 2011 Spring Release, to support those secondary schools unable to upgrade to the summer release before exams results day. This patch will be accessible in the usual fashion through the helpdesk and SOLUS3.

    So what you're saying is 31st of July... which is what Mr Sayer's Capita bod said. I'm impressed, your formula works! Have you uploaded to SupportNet file sharing...?

    Have to get it copyrighted first.

    It's usually out just in time for exams and too late for install and upgrading of PCs prior to teacher's holidays.

    The Release has been delayed because of the very late change of mind by the DfE re. their new requirements for the SWC - as stated on both the previous news items on SupportNet. We have known for a good while that there would be a delay!

    The Exams problem is a different issue and, in any case, there will be a patch for this. So that can be used if the changes to SIMS for the SWC cannot be implemented in time for next week, or you want to delay taking it!

    Can you feel the excitement...? Tensions rising.
    I wonder who'll be the first to find a fault.
    I'll make this sticky so we can report any findings.

    We sent out a "DotNet4" checker a while ago, anyone fancy betting how many "Please install DotNet4" we get?

    @creese, surely killing Sysman6 should make you want to upgrade!
