It is with great excitement that I can finally say that the beta for Home Server SMART 2012 and WindowSMART 2012 is down to what I expect will be the final month of beta. I’m hoping to be in Release Candidate stage by mid-May, and thus am on target for a late June gold release. There are a few unsupported SSDs that need to be addressed, and I’ve got a couple SSDs on order from Newegg so that I can hopefully, finally put that issue to bed.

Beta 6 of both HSS 2012 and WS 2012 are now posted. Beta 6 should be the last beta series—there’ll be a Beta 6a and probably 6b, after which hopefully we’ll have the Release Candidate.

Home Server SMART 2012: http://wiki.dojonorthsoftware.net/Home_ ... SMART_2012
WindowSMART 2012: http://wiki.dojonorthsoftware.net/WindowSMART_2012

Beta Expiration
All beta builds of Home Server SMART 2012 and WindowSMART 2012 prior to beta 6 will stop working at the end of April or May, depending on which beta version you have installed. Beta 6 and the Release Candidate will run through July 31. So please update to the latest version at your earliest convenience.

As promised, Home Server SMART is and always will be free. WindowSMART, on the other hand, will be Shareware. WindowSMART will run for 30 days as a full-featured trial, after which it will need to be registered (purchase a license) or it will stop working. During the beta, this trial timer will NOT be enforced. If you purchase a license for WindowSMART before the production release, you will still need to update to the production release. July 31 is a hard-coded end for the beta builds.

5 FREE Home Office Licenses to MediaSmartServer.net Users!
I am offering 5 FREE Home Office licenses (a $20 value) to the MediaSmartServer.net community for WindowSMART 2012. Please send me a PM with your first and last name, business name (if you have one) and email address. The first 5 users to PM me will receive their free license via email. I will email your license in under 24 hours. Once all 5 licenses are given away, I’ll post the winners.

MediaSmartServer.net Pre-Release License Sale!
I am offering a pre-release license sale – you can buy a WindowSMART license now, and it will be good for Beta 6, Release Candidate AND all production releases. Updates are free for life. If you would like to buy a license today, you can. Here are the licenses that are on sale:

  • Family/Home - $10 (regularly $15) – non-commercial home use; unlimited users at a single residential address
  • Home Office - $15 (regularly $20) – same as Family/Home except commercial use allowed
  • Small Business 1 - $40 (regularly $50) – up to 25 unique users at 1 location
  • Small Business 2 - $60 (regularly $75) – up to 100 unique users at 1 location
  • Medium Business 1 - $80 (regularly $100) – up to 100 unique users at 2 locations
  • Medium Business 2 - $150 (regularly $200) – up to 500 unique users at 20 locations

Please visit http://wiki.dojonorthsoftware.net/Windo ... _Licensing for licensing details.

If you would like to purchase a license now, please send me a PM with the following details. Because this sale is being featured on my favorite sites only (MediaSmartServer.net, HomeServerShow.com and HomeServerLand.com), you must PM me on one of those three sites, which validates for me you are a member of one of them.

  • Your first and last name
  • Your business name (if you have one)
  • Your email address (if you have a PayPal account you MUST use your PayPal address)
  • Your city/state (city/country for non-US residents)
  • Which license(s) you would like to purchase – you can request multiple

I will then send you an invoice which is good for 2 weeks. Upon receipt of cleared payment (most payments clear instantly, but eCheck payments take several days), I will generate your license(s) and email them to you. I don’t have the ordering website up and running yet so I’m generating licenses manually, so it could take up to 24 hours to receive your license.

US Military Discount
If you are an active, reserve, honorably discharged or retired member of the United States military, you are eligible for a discount of $5 off the Home licenses and/or 20% off the Commercial licenses. Please include with your PM a digital copy (a picture taken with your phone will suffice) of your military ID, retirement paperwork and/or honorable discharge certificate. Be sure to blur/conceal personal information such as your social security number. I just need to see that the name matches that of the request.

Enlisted service members discharged dishonorably (DD) or for bad conduct (BCD), or officers dismissed as part of a sentence from a general court martial are not eligible for the discount.

Congratulations to our five winners! You should all have received a PM from me and your license key via email. Here are our five winners:

#1 - helrazr
#2 - Kiwi
#3 - cuberob
#4 - rmeitzler
#5 - TxDot

This free license giveaway was done here, and also on Home Server Show and Home Server Land. All of the licenses have been claimed here as well as on Home Server Show. However, none have been claimed on HSL. So, if you were hoping to get your hot little hands on a free license and think you missed out, you can still hop on over to HSL if you're a member and shoot me a PM there.

The discount price promotion will likely continue right up to the release, so you can still get a home license for cheap -- just $10 for the family/home (non-commercial use) or $15 for the home office. The US Military discount still applies, which translates into $5 and $10, respectively and/or 20% off the Commercial licenses featured above.

To get the discount you must send me a PM with the requested info and I'll email you a PayPal invoice.
