Discussion in 'Returnil Betas' started by n8chavez, Jul 6, 2010.
My only Q: when?
August 2010 or September?
No, as the pages you show are the actual purchase pages and the system can take orders if the user wishes to purchase licensing now as the RVS Lite 2011 version is actually at final release quality. The major difference here is that RVS Lite 2011 has has well over a year in beta as the previous Labs version with the stability that implies.
Look for the final release before the end of September.
So you are selling beta software then. That contradicts what you said here:
There are 2 betas in the pipeline that are true betas; meaning that there may be issues we are unaware of and as a result are not yet available for purchase (RSS 3.2 and RMSE with the RMSE scheduled to be fully integrated into a later 3x version). RVS Lite 2011 is special as it has had an extended beta testing phase (again, well over a year) and is based on the same development path as the older 2008/Labs versions with the corresponding certainty regarding product stability. The 3x line is more complex with a different underlying structure which takes longer to upgrade.
While this has no real meaning in this discussion regarding 3.2 stability, Lite 2011 is a beta in name only and could be released now as a final version with little disturbance or expected issues. The only reason we still call it a beta is because we simply have not released it as a final...
Then why wait until August or September before releasing it? Why not release it as a final version now then you could quite legitimately advertise it for sale on the Returnil website?
At present, it is still officially classified as beta software on the Returnil website and therefore, by your own admission, shouldn't be offered for sale.
