Wish the preview release was a month or more postponed

I really admire your efforts for Magento. Yes I think it is ecommerce evolved or it will be, but I dont understand how a preview version is released which a lot of people cannot preview, because they cannot install it. I read in the forums that the development process was all done in *nix systems, that’s ok, but even if this is a preview version (not beta) you should have tested it for a variety of different systems, if any problem occurs (especially when installing) you shouldnt have relesed it, beacuse it cannot be previewed smile I would wait for another month, so what? An online demo would be enough for preview purposes (and I use it as I cannot install). I know any bug is normal at this stage but we are talking about trying and trying to install magento. I’m afraid a lot of people will lost their enthusiasm just because of not being able to install. Well, I’m one of them.

Hope this installation issue would be resolved in a short time.

Good luck and best wishes to Varien!

Well ... one cannot argu on that ...

A release like this will only expose developer to diffrent enviroment and senario. I think if it goes like this it will be way more stabler and better by the end of september than it would have been if it was release end of september.

Wish you had come after a month tongue wink (Kidding)

I guess 95% of eveyone running an ecommerce-site with ZenCart or OsCmmerce uses *nix, so Varien did the absolutely best to release it now and get as much feedback as possible early in the development-phase.

What I’m missing though is detailed description on how to write addons to Magento, translate it into other languages, etc. - things we could work on while for the next beta-release.

Hi smile

The main reasons as i could collect from posts are:

1. Missing .htaccess files in .zip package (we’re appologize for that...)
2. Buggy pdo (just can’t know what version it will used with… my xampp install worked perfectly)
3. Not ready host setup (in most cases was resolved by host support team)

Personally i’ve expected much more troubles rasberry
