So here I am eating my breakfast and reading my emails.  Among them are a couple of emails from users asking about the release date of PI AF 2012.  As some of you may know, we had originally planned on releasing it at the end of 3Q, which passed 2 days ago.  As the product manager, it goes without saying that I’m very excited that users are waiting for this release (similar to an iPhone release?  ).  So I want to give everyone a status update on PI AF 2012.  We built release candidate 1 and made it available to select external users for testing on 9/22.  We have received a handful of bug reports from both internal and external users some of which we’re fixing.  We’re hoping to build release candidate 2 later this week and if all goes well, it will be generally available later this month.

 

For those who are impacted by this slippage of the release date, please accept my sincere apologies.  This release has significant changes and enhancements to the AFSDK requiring very significant testing efforts.  Rest assured the development team is working their tails off to get this out the door as soon as possible.  Feel free to contact me directly at skwan@osisoft.com if you have additional questions or comments.
