  1. GS Cloud or CDN issues on the weekend, updates were invisible on the website to some folks, visible to others, will follow up
  2. # of support issues on GS is up 24% from last week, generally higher even before major update 2->3.1 switched on, no major update GS spike, yet!
  3. 3.1 Support Issues – TB2->3.1 User confusion with autoconfig “Manual Setup…” button: It is NOT the full manual setup users expect; it actually means “create an account with the currently displayed settings including POP or IMAP and edit it manually afterwards” (since the account is created you can’t change POP to IMAP or vice versa) as opposed to an account creation screen where you can choose POP or IMAP and then create the account manually! SuMoMo IMAP to POP article is unclear so will modify as well as do a screencast.
  4. SuMoMo – Thomas Lendo (thanks) translated localization dashboard to German – need to verify it’s correct but it looks good
  5. See this week’s Support Appendix for full Get Satisfaction metrics and other support details –

Lightning Updates

  • Build Symbols for 1.0b2 mac/win32 release have been uploaded. For future crashes, we might have more info on what part of calendar is misbehaving

  • Our new 1.0b3 blocker list is up, not much change from what was proposed.
