Hi guys,


Do you want to stay ahead of the curve and have access to the latest features?


Are you an early adopter?


Do you want to give feedback on the new features so that we can change them even before they go public?


I’m glad to announce that we have just released our first Service Studio Beta version!! If your answer is ‘Yes’ to one of the previous questions, this version is for you!!





This is basically the same stable version available in our downloads page but with some additional features that are still in Beta that will be automatically updated every time there is a new version (this is the last download/install you will do!).


So, what are the next steps?

  1. Download and install this Service Studio version here and just use it

  2. Keep sending us all the feedback (we are listening!)


As always, a big thank you for your collaboration and willingness to help us build a better product!

By the way, in our first Beta launch, we already have a new Beta feature: a new Forge Integration in the application list that allows you to quickly update your forge components.


Hope you like it!



Hi,

Great initiative and nice improvement to quickly see a list of forge components that have newer version in the forge, works like a charm!

Here is my feedback:

  1. it would be nice when you press the update, that it immediately starts, now it brings you to the component page on the forge and there you have to press update again. Only in case of warnings (force install) the extra step via the component page should be done.
  2. If there are more then 9 updates it says 9+, it would be more informative if the actual count is shown (at least in a tooltip when you hover the notification icon). 
  3. An update all link would be nice too, so you can just schedule update of all take a coffee break or a nice walk when there are many updates, and have all your applications up to date when you come back.

Regards,

Daniel

I noticed another change, and am not sure if it is intentionally, but when pressing the service center icon in service studio it opens service center directly in the browser. I think that is just fine, as I prefer using service in the browser. Just wondered if this is intentionally as a new beta version feature.

Hi Team,

Thanks for this release. Was waiting for it since ODC. 

I also prefer to open the service center.

And plz we really need an update all. I had more than 50 components to update.

Regards,

Marcelo

Could you clarify how beta users can submit feedback to the beta program?

Hi Leonardo, 

You have the normal feedback button on the menu

Yes, that's intentional. Opening it in SS itself caused all kinds of problems, so OS decided to just open it in the browser instead (which I also prefer myself). The only downside is you don't get logged in automagically.

Daniël, it is as Kilian said, the change to opening SC in SS is intentional. It is already available in Development Environment 11 - Release 9 - RC.

Another good initiative. Keep going !! I Will download and give feedback!! 

Thanks a lot Alberto! :)

Hello Vasco


I already start to try the Beta Version of SS. I think that could be usefull inform user that can keep both installations of SS in local machine. The Normal release and the Beta.

That could encourage  more people to try!


Regards

Hey Alberto,

Thanks for the feedback!

Actually, for the beta we are using the same version as the stable one just adding 1 or 2 features that are still in Beta. This means the same product with the same quality! Nevertheless, you can indeed install them side-by-side.

Hope we have a lot of Beta users trying out the new features!

Cheers,
