Last week, we released the first Beta of Sugar 5.5.1 as this is our commitment “release early, release often”.
Please help by testing for regressions in your modules or api clients. Also, try out the functionality and usability.
Customers can download the 5.5.1 Beta 1 for Sugar Professional and Sugar Enterprise through the Download Manager.
The 5.5.1 Beta 1 of Sugar Community Edition Community can be downloaded through the Sugar project in SugarForge.
In 5.5.1 we improved the performance and design of the Emails module, as well as addressed the most significant emails issues and feedback reported by customers through SugarCRM Support.
As of the Beta 1 release, we addressed over 140 bugs related to Emails, Email Templates and Inbound Emails. A full listing of the bugs and features addressed in Sugar 5.5.1 Beta 1 can be found in the Bug Tracker.
The current plan is to release the first production-ready 5.5.1 Release Candidate early in January 2010. Please check for release schedule updates in this thread.
