    What about this:

    Lets make a sticky post which is called something like Build progress.

    In this post only the acronis developer team can post all the technical stuff. The build that they are working on and the things that they are fixing in the next build number. This way we don't have to ask questions about when will.... etc etc because we can read it ourselfs!

    Acronis.... is this a lot to ask? Implement time should be very short and the results should be BIG.

    What do you think about this?

    Thanx in Advance

    Second it as well : would make it much simpler to know is usefull to redownload new build, instead of reading as I now do almost all posts to see what's happening, and if developpers are progressing somehow.

    Nice idea.
    However, in practice things happen:
    -while working on a change unforseen effects arise which impact not only the changed feature but other parts of a program
    -more urgent changes arise which impact the planned changes
    -staffing issues cause rescheduling of planned changes
    -marketing issues change priorities
    Companies, not just Acronis, would probably be reluctant to commit to promises which may very well be broken. This would then leave them open to criticism should this situation arise.

    Perhaps I could offer an alternative idea:
    The Acronis website could list all problems, formally reported by registered purchasers of the product (not those registered at Wilders forum), which have been tested and confirmed by Acronis.
    Any work around could also be given.
    An option might be available which would enable registered purchasers to rate the importance of fixing the problem (for example, scale: very high, high, medium, low, very low). Aconis could then take the total ratings into account when allocating resources to fix problems. Obviously it would be in the interest of users that they rated only those problems which impact them otherwise they might delay the fixing of problems in which they are interested whilst other problems get addressed.
    I would have thought that Acronis would also be happy with such a scheme since they would be in a position to address issues which were the most important to the most customers. Greater customer satisfaction should result in more sales and less dissatisfied customers switching to competitive products.

    How about this? I'm going to PREDICT in advance, at least two of the release note entries in the NEXT version of TrueImage! ;)

    1. Better hardware support
    2. GUI fixes

    Of course, nobody knows what this means, so it can apply to almost anything. How about a decent (informative) set of release notes?

    Hello Jeremy and tachyon42,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    We appreciate your collaboration on this matter.

    I have forwarded your suggestions to the appropriate person and he will decide if it is possible to create such a Sticky Thread or implement the more detailed information about the updates on our web site.

    Thank you.
    Alexey Popov
