Gladinet Cloud Desktop Beta Released

The soft release has been going on for a while now, build 37, 41 has been given to partners to try out. Today, build 44 is uploaded to the gladinet web site and it is available.

What is new:
(1) The beta software now runs in two different mode - stand-alone mode or standard mode. Out of box, it is stand-alone mode. no registration is required.

(2) ~ 500 changes/fixes went in between Tech Preview 2 binary and Beta 2.

Gladinet Cloud Desktop Beta (Cont.)

The drive towards beta is elusive. We are now at build 0.8.41.2034. It has been run since Tuesday night. So far so good except one SkyDrive we may want to take for build 42.

Anyway, it is either this build or next build that we will declare for beta.

Gladinet Cloud Desktop Beta

The Gladinet Client as it was in Tech Preview has been renamed to Gladinet Cloud Desktop. So the product name will be Gladinet Cloud Desktop going forward. The idea is to deliver and integrate cloud services to your desktop; or cloud-enable your desktop. The clouds could be as big as the Amazon S3 cloud or as small as your personal cloud. We are fulfilling the vision of the internet is the computer with the release of the Gladinet Cloud Desktop.

We are having the pre-beta build 0.8.37.1977. The test run is looking good for build 37. One of the potential partner will take an early look at this build today.

More testing and fixing will happen in the next 4 days. The final build (#38) will happen on Sunday (11/17/2008).

It has been a long road since Tech Preview 2 (build 0.8.30.1588). The last number of the version is the source control change number. This means an additional 400 changes went in for Beta.

Beta is good. However beta is not version 1 release yet. Still has some way to go to …
