"July 23rd, 2007 STABLE (phase 1)"

Am I correct in thinking that (providing there are no other delays) once we hit a stable release for 11 there will no longer be any way to go backwards to a cpanel 10 nor will there be any way to update a cpanel 10 system without also updating it to cpanel 11 ?

I just want to be sure I understand that this date means there will no longer be a cpanel 10.

Correct. Since you can only upgrade or install the latest builds of cPanel, once STABLE goes to 11 (the last build still not on 11) there will be no way to downgrade to version 10.

I think that Release Schedule table no longer works if they are going to put up multiple release dates for the same releases.

Something more along the lines of a three dimensional cube graphic is probably in order. ;)

Oh joy, another 2 week delay.

cPanel, a suggestion, stop displaying a date. Why? It's giving people's hopes up, mine especially. Just say something like Q3 2007 instead. Would be so much easier...

Q3 is not a good solution for this. For example cPanel gave a date like this for windows version last year. But the result is: after a year there is still no windows version :)

The best thing for cPanel is not to give any date.

Yup, it's been delayed again :(. The table was updated and now they removed July 17 and it's now July 31.

After we get cPanel 11 completely rolled out, we are reverting to our old practice of not issuing release dates.

Seeing as there have already been a serious number of delays (too many to count), why don't you start now and ditch the release dates. I think we're all betting the release date you've NOW quota of 31st July 2007 is going to change, again, so why don't you just remove the release date and, if anyone asks about the second release, just say "when it's ready" like every other software company tends to say when people ask about upcoming releases.

That would make more sense in my opinion.

Naaaah. I like the multiple dates guessing game. It's more fun... List 4 possible dates... One's gotta be it... We can start a nice betting game ;)

All joke aside I do appreciate a solid product, and if we need to wait then we gotta wait....
