Social Office will be released as a plug-in in future releases; so probably it will be planned just after the release of Liferay 6.1

Hi Peter,

Sorry about that. We experienced some delays and dependencies on 6.1. However, I can tell you we are actively working on it and I hope it will be worth the wait. You'll see a much more polished product than 1.6.

Best,
bryan

Hi Bryan,
Thanks for the update. I am surely waiting in anticipation, as we have an internal requirement for a project collaboration platform and Social Office seems like the ideal choice. I have been retiscent to go into the current version too deeply because of some annoying little issues like not being able to easily change the logo to that of our company (it says in the user notes you can but it appears this is not operational...).
I know it is difficult to predict when the new release might be available, but any chance to pull out the divining rod?

Regards, Peter

Hi Peter,

We are currently looking at a Q1 release (no date set in stone yet). It's a little later than originally anticipated, but we have been using the time to include some really cool new features, which should hopefully make it worth the wait. So please watch this space!

Best Regards, Vicki

Newbie here, we have a small office (5employees) and Liferay I thought was a great app. I used the installer from Bitnami to get going with the portal. I was able to get it working, but found it to be a bit cumbersome and too large for our needs. I visited your site and saw the social edition. Installed it to test it out and really like it and feel that it would be a good starting point for our needs. It's something that we'd like to get started with right away. I guess what I'm wondering is if the social 2.0 version is something we can just install over the 1.5b, or will we need to redo everything? I noticed here in one of the other posts above that Social would now be a plugin for the portal? My technical expertise isn't that great as I'm just an office manager trying to find something that would help our medical office run a little better, so the easier the better for me. Any info would be helpful. Any idea if we can proceed with 1.5b for now and install 2.0 over it? Will it have a complete installer package that we could install and run without having to do any SQL connections? Or will everything be based on the Liferay portal with a social 2.0 plugin and it would be better to work on the Liferay Portal? Thank you.

Hi Vicki,

Thank you for the update. Like Franklin, I am waiting in anticipation. Our office could make very good use of a new improved Social Office. Sounds like it will be worth the wait!!

Cheers,

Peter

Hi Peter, Franklin—

Here's a key question for you guys: if Social Office or something like it were offered through Software as a Service with per user or user-tier pricing, would that be compelling for you?

Personally I think the small business market is overlooked by many of the software manufacturers of something like this. Everything out there is far too big or cumbersome for our needs. Even liferay portal wasn't simple enough and streamlined out of the box for a situation with just 5 employees. In our Medical office a tool like this would be very useful, a pier user tier pricing is interesting. From a small business standpoint however outright purchasing something like this in a complete installer package and the ability to get updates would be better. The flexibility of your software and the ability to customize it for our office is something that is what appealed to me. The ability for tasks that was more on the level of a PM standpoint was nice as well which I didn't see in your liferay portal. In our setup collaboration and the ability to manage large amounts of information was very nice. In our office we deal with tons of information and to have a repository as well as a place to use as a resource for our employees is great. From the medical field perspective the application can be streamlined and customized easily for the way our office operates and I would think that if a lot more offices new about this it might be something that other office managers would be interested in. I have tested dozens of applications and yours was the one that I found to be the easiest to use and with the Bitnami installer it made life very easy. Unfortunately they didn't have an installer for your social application. From this one portal we were able to link all of our web based applications on one page and have resources available for everyone in the office. We turned a forum into a task tracking feature, but your social application had a better real ability to assign tasks and track them. In the end though we are a very small business and are still trying to be cost effective in what we use.

Brian,

I agree with Franklin's sentiments. However, our situation is somewhat different. We are a small central ofice of around a dozen or so people, with individuals in addition operating in 5-6 states. We are a not-for-profit industry organization with significant membership in an industrial sector. I am particularly keen to use Social Office as a collaborative centralized project management system for the various projects we undertake, with a mixture of internal and external stakeholders.

I believe if you offered it as an SaaS solution, it would need to be structured in such a way as to be convenient to manage the user numbers. For example, just a couple of prices covering blocks of users, rather than a per user price. Or a simple per project fee, maybe one for a small project and one for a large project (with many users).

Keep up the great work. I am looking forward to the new release!

Hi Vicki,
Now that Liferay 6.1 is just out (congratulations! The improvements look awesome!), any update on ETA for new Social Office? A new year brings new expectations!!

I would also like to know about ETA for Social Office 2.0. We want to use this for team collaboration for e-learning startup for various online courses authoring. We are team of 4-5 trainers located in several countries and we want to use Social office for collaboration. We tried other option like Confulene etc. but Social office was best suited for us. Even Liferay Portal is bulky for us..
Looking forward to hear.

Okay, the last we heard on a release date for SO 2.0 was from Vicki on December 5th where she said that "we are currently looking at" a Q1 release.
I do not wish to appear rude, but we heard promises before implying a Q2-2011 release. I find the collaboration style of SO to be superior to any other significant portal system I've tested (Alfresco Share and Team, KnowledgeTree, and so on), but I have had to delay development plans with clients for over 9 months now.

Back to the original question from the OP - have you set a release date for SO 2.0?

Respectfully,
Trevor

I too am becoming increasingly frustrated with the empty promises so far. If a new release is several months away, perhaps the developers could provide some instruction on building SO from SVN for those of us that want to test it on the latest Liferay Portal.

Hi Nick, Trevor,

I'm very sorry for the frustrations we've caused to both of you.

I saw the latest build of Social Office last Friday at the office. The team is putting the finishing touches and says feature complete status is due for first week of February. That means we're about five weeks away from release at least, given the QA and UAT cycles still have to happen.

Let me talk to the team to see if we can get some early builds out to you or provide instructions for building it from scratch.

The good news is that the new product looks quite good and I think you will pleased with what you get.

Best,
Bryan

Hi Bryan,

Speaking for myself, I really do have faith in Liferay and your team, and I've been promoting this with my clients. I am very hopeful to see SO 2.0 soon.

This looks great, I'm glad to see that progress is coming along, and that it will be released soon. As much as i've enjoyed seeing the screenshots, it has only increased my anticipation and will make waiting until the release date even more difficult emoticon

Hi Bryan,

That looks really very intriguing - I see a few elements that I like.
Will SO 2.0 simply install as a module to Liferay? Can't wait to see this and work with it.

Is there a release date yet?

Cheers,
Trevor
