Sitefinity 3.2 beta available for download

Ah, Sitefinity 3.2. The huge release that's suffered some delays is finally getting very close to becoming a reality with today's milestone beta release. The bits have just been published to the Sitefinity forums and are available for anyone willing to take the beta for a spin. For those that have forgotten or just not paid attention, the Sitefinity 3.2 release is going to deliver a lot of new functionality. Among the new features in 3.2 are:

  • New! Personalization Module
  • New! Newsletter Module
  • New! Events Module
  • New! Photos & Documents Module
  • CAPTCHA form protection
  • Integration with RadControls "Prometheus"
The beta is good way to start testing these features, but you should proceed with some caution. There is a healthy list of "known issues" with this beta release that you'll want to review before downloading. All of these issues will be addressed by the time the final 3.2 release drops in a couple of weeks, but in the mean time they could mean headaches for brave beta testers.

Warnings of issues aside, I do encourage you to download the beta, give it a try, and tell us what you think. As with all Telerik products, your feedback guides our progress, so speak now or forever hold your opinion 'til the 4.0 product cycle.
