First of all apologies for the inexcusable delay in getting version 3.2 out the door. In the past when we had delays they were always tied to the code not being ready. This time around, we focussed on getting this right (added resources, managed the projects more aggressively etc). The code was available on time. However, we had started on some changes to licensing and the install that ended up taking way more time than we had anticipated. We have this behind us. There will be changes to ensure that future releases will definitely arrive on time.
With reference to the website, we have several issues that have been pending for a while. However, we have not been ignoring these issues. We have just been progressing in an internally decided order. For this release cycle we wanted to fix the QA issue system that we were using. In the past live QA tracking was not working as expected. We completely revamped this system and live tracking of QA issues now works as expected. We are probably the only component vendor to provide a live view of our bug database to all website visitors:)
We have also completely revamped our KB system. It is much more user friendly now and you can be assured that we will be adding articles very quickly in the weeks to come.
We have also added a very nice search system to our KB and Open Issues areas. You can test drive this search system now. We are currently working on expanding this search to the forums and also to the rest of the site.
Another goal of this release cycle was to get our documentation published weekly to the web. This has also been accomplished and you can view the results at http://www.syncfusion.com/library/
. We will be updating this content every week as topics get worked on internally. This is to ensure that most documentation issues that are reported are quickly addressed and the results are made available to users immediately.
The Blogs have been temporarily removed from the forum links because they were not getting updated often enough.
Please give us 2 days more to make a build available.
Thanks & best regards,
