    Autumn Release 2011

    It's out.
    I've heard of one person for whom the system is down.
    Any one else with thoughts, issues, advice, post it here.
    All associated parts for InTouch, ADPS etc were released at once, but the ADP needed re-releasing later in the day, so worth checking if you downloaded it early in anticipation.

    I'm still on Spring, hoping to go direct to Autumn, and hope there are no stings with regards Finance/FMS

    Watch out for any Academies you may support as an LA! Seem's Capita completely side stepped us and released SIMS and FMS Autumn 2011 to all of them in SOLUS3! If we had the next version of SOLUS3 and had set up auto-install upgrades, it could have been very nasty!!!

    If you are moving from Spring to Autumn...you need to be aware that for some reason, Capita thought Finance teams would like a new teletubbies look. Its horrid, and does some wierd stuff.

    We are direct Capita support - so whill wait to see what others have done. Might even consider firing up another HyperV VM to play with it....ideas.....

    No surprises there then. We are now using SOLUS3 purely to roll out Discover to schools that request it. Installed it in about 8 sites so far with another 5/6 on the waiting list. Touch wood, it's not been "tooooooo" bad with it, but the fact it's so unintelligent means lots of time telling it where everything is (Binn folder, SIMS/FMS/Discover install location etc).

    My blood pressure still hasn't leveled out after our recent Summer upgrade, I think I will give these releases a wide berth for some time.
    As for my Solus3 experiences, there isn't enough room on this forum to catalog the pain I encountered a few months back.

    Lets hope the new, new release actually works as we are all going to be using it as Solos2 could well be binned next year.

    I didn't go to Summer due to FMS issues, but now i've found in the documentation that the only supported versions are Summer and Autumn, i'm sure it used to be the previous 3 releases, but now it seems it's only 2, so if you avoid one for whatever reason, you have to take the next one or find yourself unsupported, or at least that's the way it seems. I'm pretty sure in practise they wont be so strict...inshallah.
