What a week!

It was a busy week in Digipede-land, and I haven't found any blogging time at all.

We've been in final QA on our new release, Digipede Network 1.2. Most of the last few weeks has been install and upgrade QA. As it turns out, that's a bunch of work! The new version is fully compatible with both .NET 1.1 and .NET 2.0, and supports mixed-mode operation (some agents running .NET 1.1, some running .NET 2.0, and some running both, and all combinations thereof).

The week was made all the more interesting because my co-worker Nathan's wife had a baby! Exciting for them, and Nathan has been a trooper (literally dashing out of the hospital to hand software off to me on a USB key at one point). But he hasn't been in the office, which means I've been directly supporting customers and potential customers. That's always fun (as a product manager, talking to customers is probably the most rewarding part of my job)--but it's hard to be direct support when trying to get a release out the door!

But all's well that ends well. The release is done (!), and we've got at least one new customer this week (I hope we can release some details about it soon). We've also had some good talks with potential partners.
