Greetings from UD!
My apologies for not posting an update sooner -- in case you aren't aware of this, UD had our yearly conference last week in Boston (see http://www.ud07.com/index.php
). Check out the agenda and speakers -- it was our best conference yet!
So, it's time for an update on the Grid.org migration and beta program I wrote about last quarter. The good news is that the new release of Grid MP is complete and we are still targeting Q2 for the upgrade of Grid.org (as previously announced).
We are still planning to implement a beta program for testing of this version prior to final upgrade. Several new requirements (including something exciting we'll be announcing by the end of Q2) have necessitated a slight delay in scheduling the beta program, so the target timeline to begin beta has slipped to early Q2 -- though we still intend to complete the full upgrade by end of Q2 as originally planned.
If you've already volunteered for the beta program, thanks! If you would like to, please let us know as there is still time. We will reach out to all volunteers with beta program info in the next few weeks.
So, to summarize, here's what you can expect from UD regarding grid.org in the next 3-4 months:
> By early Q2: Beta program initiated
> Mid Q2: Announcement about the next big Grid.org project
> By end of Q2: Grid.org migration to the latest release complete
Thanks once again for your support of Grid.org!
