What happened to the development of IP Nexus? The official website for it has been removed?Can I still download the Beta somewhere?Thanks,- globex
The public beta has not yet been released.
Last time I check I submitted a beta tester thing, but I don't think they liked me that much. :homestar: Anyways I hope we get some feedback on it, and the price is reasonable for what its worth. Anyways I forget who's project it was anyways.
It was Josh's project.
There is a Private Beta from what I have heard. But only Private Beta Testers can access it :PAs for the forum, it has been hidden until Nexus is publicly released in a public beta.
Has there been any recent talk about to indicate when such a beta will be released? A few weeks, a month, several months? Do we know at all?
Yes we talk about it all the time :)That information is not quite public but we are getting closer. Resources dedicated to getting IP.Board/Blog/Gallery/Downloads/new site/etc. all released last month will soon be refocused so you will start to see a lot more movement on some of the other projects.

Cimme, as a side note, they have admitted that they made a mistake announcing their upcoming products too early. That aside, it has been said that IP.Nexus is ready for public beta, but was waiting for IP.Board (at which point, support/documentation/developer resources can be refocused on it). IP.Dynamic is somewhere in the realm of "pretty much complete, but simply too busy to have done any work on it recently" - again, that was IP.Board (remembering that it is their flagship product which already has crudtons of users, so they MUST ensure that it is top quality)
I'd agree with the product announcements statement, we were teased about IP.Board 2.2 for over a month in the form of PB's & RC's, all we saw was topics requesting release dates and rumours, it'd be far better if announcements were made "on the spot", make it a surprise, otherwise people just ask the same question time and time again.
I know, that there were announcements, that the news were not posted at the right time. But remember: Developing another (perhaps usefull) CMS and other (persaps usefull) software will need customers, that can trust a software is at first JUST ANOTHER CMS beside the still existing and perhaps in version 2 or above. The last months were just like: Here dog's a bit of news/movies to eat. Just feeding a hungry dog with 2 bones with 25 g on each won't be enough to survive a long time. I'd like to use IP.Board beside IP.Dynamic and IP.Nexus for my website. BUT I decided since nothing's seems to be as close as public beta, that I HAVE to have a website running. And I do not want to make static html-pages just because IP.Dynamic is not finised or in public beta. My boards are running really good and I like the software from IPS.I think, that IP.Dynamic won't be that ingenious that everybody expects. I hope I'm wrong, but expecting the worst might be better in the fact to be happy about just a litte.I'll order a license of all I need (cms, forum, nexus), but therefor the software has to be released and sound (and of course be) usefull for my needs :D.
That would be an awful marketing strategy - if I didn't see IPD on Matt's blog every now and again I would go off and buy a different CMS. Then when Dynamic comes, IPS would've lost a customer.
Ditto. If products such as Nexus and Dynamic weren't announced so early in their development, IPS would be losing a lot of potential customers. I've been awaiting the release of Nexus and following the updates we have received for a long while, and will continue to stick with it until it finally sees the light of day. I just hope it turns out to be such a great product IPS seem to be putting into it.
Generally, I too would purchase an existing billing solution, but late 2005 when I was first looking for a customer management system, and a public beta of Nexus was on the cards, I thought I'd hold off to see how effective it would be. I liked the idea of using it in connection with Converge too, so new customers would be automatically registered on the forums.It's taking IPS a while to release this public beta, but as I continue to look forward to what sounds like an excellent product, I might as well wait that little bit longer rather than going with an alternative solution this late in the game.
I'm gonna dig this thread up and ask - anyone has any clues about Nexus? I can't wait to get my hands on it, if it's ever going to be released. Judging by the screenshots (http://forums.invisionpower.com/index.php?showtopic=200999) it will be the best thing ever to use. As I am currently using WHMAutoPilot 2 to manage my hosting users, I'm right now in the process of deciding, if I should migrate to WHMAP v3 or wait for Nexus. If anyone has a clue, what's happened to Nexus, now's the time to say it loud :P.
I have heard some where around the forums that this is going to be released with IP.Dynamic in their IP.Business Suite.
I heard that as well, but over the last year or so I've heard many things about it being just around the corner, so until an official release date is announced it would be wise to work on the assumption it is a long way off. :)
Thanks for giving us a estimate :) This will truly be a brilliant step for IPS :)
Thanks Lindy, that was exactly the answer I was looking for :)
Gee a summer mid release means probably in September if last minute changes aren't made I am debating whether to use it or go with a free solution or my friends custom developed CMS, but if it integrates with hosting then I should get it... I think information and features should be released so we can give feedback about it, or get a general idea, a possible beta or screenshots would be nice, because if I can't test it then I'm not going to pay for it... and figure out its not something I wanted.Pricing is another topic :P
