Earlier today, Martin Kirov (Executive VP, Sitefinity/Telerik) posted a blog post to the Sitefinity Blogs. In this post, Martin announced that licenses for early adopters of Sitefinity 4 would be extended:
We have extended the subscriptions of all new licenses and upgrades purchased between the Sitefinity Release Candidate (November 18) and the Sitefinity 4.1 release (April 19) to start from July 31, 2011.
Each Sitefinity purchase comes included with 1 year of upgrades. After that year, a subscription must be maintained to get access to newer releases. This offer means that Sitefinity 4 early adopters have complimentary access to upgrades until July 31, 2012.
Thank you for being an early adopter
In his post, Martin also expresses the original inspiration for Sitefinity 4:
This was not just the next version of Sitefinity which introduces some new things and improvements, this was the beginning of a completely different system where we put all our past experience and our passion and did a lot of things we wanted to go back and do differently, do better so we can ensure a future growth that benefits all our clients.
However, you can’t completely remodel your house without causing some temporary disruption. Martin also alludes to this disruption:
The most difficult part is behind us and things have and will continue to improve quickly.
It sounds like the dust is settling and we can focus on polishing the finer details.
Where can I get the details?
Sitefinity 4 license holders have already been emailed the details. Beyond that, the best place to ask questions is Sitefinity.com (blogs or forums) or email@example.com.
