    Oh joyous, I'll look at this once I've stopped banging my head against a brick wall with the Solus 3 'stability patch' which fails to install.

    Messed up my system again, did the DB fine last night but the clients don't update... well some do but it just says successful and doesn't do the ones that come online in the morning. Prob my setup though as I have a windows network running on cat5.

    Any bets on the recall date???

    I have to work out why a DBAttach detached school(s) has lost it's passwords before I can think about upgrades.

    You are brave. We are waiting to at least after the Software seminar.

    The school who wiped out their attendance marks for this year was DBAttached to another machine. No passwords worked that I know but I managed to get in with a teacher's and nearly got in with a defunct login.... very strange. It needs a bit of looking at.

    I'll install the Spring update a week before they release the summer one - should be about stable by then :-)

    In all seriousness, I would love to know the point at which Capita have stopped working on Spring and moved on to Summer, as that is the point at which I want to install Spring. I don't have the resources (or inclination) to run an update, handle client update issues, roll-back the update and then fix the clients which got broken attempting to update. I want to run a single update to a stable release, and if that means a delay in getting the latest features so be it. Anyone know how I could find out that date?

    I'd assume the only people who could tell you this are Capita themselves. Maybe log a call with them requesting the info?

    Didn't it use to be 6 releases a year, 3 with only bugfix and 3 with new stuff (and generally bugs).
