5.1 Beta programm

  • 5.1 Beta programm
  • Since 5.1 will have some major changes how would Telerik feel about a beta programm. I assume there are enough people who would engage in such a programm and if anyone taking part just finds one bug the transition would be much smoother.

  • Hi Markus,

    We have a program even now - let me know if you want to receive internal early builds. 

    We are thinking on opening special forums where we'll discuss early beta builds, features, bugs and dependencies which block a feature implementation. We'll let you know when this is ready ;).

    Kind regards,

  • Dear Georgi

    You know me. If I have time I love to test and give some feedback. Anything we find while Beta will make the real thing better when released :-)

    So yes please add me to the list when you have a build ready and you want it to be tested. If you include what to test especially for name it. Otherwise I just run it and see what happens.

  • Hi Georgi,

    I would like to be part of the beta program. Either through the MVP program or just by joining through this channel.

    Thanks,
    Daniel
  • Afternoon Georgei,

    It was great to meet with you all at the conference last week- I was poking around to see if there was a nightly/pre-release build of 5.1 but can't find it anywhere. The closest I get is:

    No internal builds for Sitefinity 5.0 2800 have been uploaded recently. 

    Would you be able to point me in the right direction please? 
    Thanks!
  • @MBA
      Doubtful they're going to provide nighty builds, probably just a version nearing release, maybe a week or two before for us to test with. 

    Dr. Georgi is on vacation right now, so he might not be responding for a bit (hopefully anyway) :)
  • Hi guys :)

    Markus & Daniel - I've added you to the list.
    @Jeff - it was nice to meet you at the conference as well. I've added you to the list.

    We still do not have a 5.1 beta build. I'll let you know by e-mail as soon as we have a build, so that you can play with it.

    Thanks for your interest and willingness to help!

    p.s. Steve - you know me, sooner or later, I always respond :)

  • Thanks Georgi!
  • We would definitely want to be involved in beta testing new products. Please add us to the list.

  • Dear Georgi
    Any estimate when we can first play with an 5.1 beta (or even alpha) version.
    Markus
  • Hello Markus,

    Thank your for the interest! We'll send out the test build approximately 2-3 weeks before the release.

  • Thanks Georgi
    I was hopping that Telerik would release it much earlier for testing purposes. 2-3 weeks might be for some of ouf a bit short to do testing and/or give feedback that might help improve 5.1 to make a good start.
    Imagine I am in vacation or up to my neck in a project that does need to be finished - this would leave me no time for playing around and testing.

    2-3 weeks to me is more a Release Candidate then a Beta Programm.

  • @Markus That's more of what it is...it's to give feedback for sure, but more to find like zero-day game breaking bugs so we don't get Hotfixes issued after the release...or just some general Oops bugs.

    You aren't likely to see significant changes from the release you get to the official (aside from the bug fixes)
