Daily Log for #alfresco

2018-02-24 08:13:43 GMT <digcat> ~later tell resplin hi richard, just watched office hours, interesting to see more on roadmap plans, question re the desire to hit version 7 by 2019, at each major version change do customers need to pay an 'upgrade fee' ? of course the changes would require work

2018-02-24 08:13:43 GMT <alfbot> digcat: The operation succeeded.

2018-02-24 12:48:20 GMT <AFaust> digcat: Paying customers have access to all versions of Alfresco, so there is no fee to update to a specific version. Of course you have the implementation cost of the update project itself with all the adaptions...

2018-02-24 12:49:21 GMT <AFaust> Only if some future features are going to be addon modules (i.e. the central authentication service) then there might be a license fee component to an upgrade

2018-02-24 12:49:21 GMT <digcat> afaust thankyou for that, some one saw the office hours and asked me,

2018-02-24 12:50:24 GMT <digcat> how are you, sorry i missed lisbon

2018-02-24 12:53:47 GMT <digcat> afaust with the version numbers is there a support versions, ie the last one

2018-02-24 12:54:16 GMT <AFaust> If you check the chat from yesterday, I had a similar question for resplin

2018-02-24 12:54:23 GMT <digcat> so if on 5 now, 2019 ver 7, support for 5 dropped

2018-02-24 12:54:35 GMT <digcat> ahh, have been on catch up

2018-02-24 12:54:39 GMT <digcat> will do,

2018-02-24 12:54:41 GMT <AFaust> I.e. previously there was a policy that current and version before that were fully supported...

2018-02-24 12:54:52 GMT <digcat> yep

2018-02-24 12:55:17 GMT <digcat> that might be the real reason to bump to 7

2018-02-24 12:55:17 GMT <AFaust> WIth 5.x they seem to have switched to a "at least until X" approach where X is communicated upon release of the version...

2018-02-24 12:55:31 GMT <AFaust> X = date

2018-02-24 12:55:39 GMT <digcat> yep,

2018-02-24 12:55:48 GMT <AFaust> https://www.alfresco.com/alfresco-product-support-status

2018-02-24 12:55:49 GMT <alfbot> Title: Alfresco Product Support Status | Alfresco (at www.alfresco.com)

2018-02-24 12:56:00 GMT <AFaust> 5.2 will be supported until 2020

2018-02-24 12:56:03 GMT <digcat> its to be expected to try and rationlise things

2018-02-24 12:56:29 GMT <AFaust> Limited Support starting in Feburary 2019

2018-02-24 12:56:32 GMT <digcat> ahh yes thats it

2018-02-24 12:56:55 GMT <AFaust> Again "earliest possible dates" for those...

2018-02-24 12:58:23 GMT <AFaust> Though there is no commitment as far as I can see and resplin was willing to communicate that the window of support would always be at least X years...

2018-02-24 12:59:18 GMT <digcat> yes, i guess providing they can support, and the moneys right they should support you

2018-02-24 12:59:25 GMT <AFaust> So they could define a shorter window for future versions, forcing customers to keep up more closely

2018-02-24 13:00:24 GMT <digcat> yes can see rg

2018-02-24 13:01:12 GMT <digcat> wondering if price changes coming

2018-02-24 13:01:30 GMT <digcat> do you ever have to be involved in that side

2018-02-24 13:20:55 GMT <AFaust> I was involved in that side when I was working at an Alfresco partner until 2016

2018-02-24 13:21:20 GMT <AFaust> Now, I just can say may honest opinions on the matter and let the customer deal with Alfresco or their respective partners...

2018-02-24 13:50:38 GMT <digcat> yes, thats a better place to be i suspect

2018-02-24 13:51:20 GMT <digcat> i started looking at that ignite software, looks amazing, did you get any further with your investigations with it

2018-02-24 15:00:08 GMT <AFaust> digcat: Well - I did implement clustering with Ignite in October 2016...

2018-02-24 15:00:19 GMT <AFaust> Now I have to find some time to update to Ignite 2.x
