I realized I hadn’t blogged in awhile, so I decided to give a quick status report on where we are with RootsMagic 4. As I mentioned previously I won’t be trying to predict the future, but we are definitely getting closer.
Right now we’re having fun with our “community preview” which 2000 of our users signed up for. This has been a great experience (for us anyways). We were able to track down some performance issues we were unaware of when users started throwing databases with up to 2 million names at it. We’ve gotten those addressed and are busy squishing bugs as we get ready for a public beta release, hopefully within the next 2 weeks.
The community preview has been very encouraging because of all the positive response and feedback we’ve received. And the issues people have uncovered have been fixable (although some of those performance issues gave us some serious heartburn).
So keep an eye on the blog (or better yet tell your reader to keep an eye on it) for the announcement of the public beta.
