how soon is very soon...?

Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

I have never administered OCS before, but I will be setting up an install for a non-profit I work with prior to me leaving the country next month. Is it worthwhile for me to set up the currently available release and then upgrade when the next version comes out, or should I wait until the next version comes out?

Their conference won't be until the fall, but I hope to set everything up before I go so that it's relatively painless for them to use.

Thanks for all your hard work :)

Hi charlener,

I hesitate to give an exact date, as we've already missed a few deadlines on OCS 2.0 -- however, we're working on integrating electronic registration payment at the moment, and then we'll need to do a little final testing. Those are the only two tasks left for this release.

FYI, the initial release of OCS 2.0 will *not* include migration tools to allow importing of OCS 1.x conferences. We'll be implementing this for a future release, but its scope may be limited as the two applications are quite different.

If you're comfortable playing with CVS and want to try the pre-release code to see if it'll suit you, the PKP CVS repository is open -- see http://pkp.sfu.ca/ocs2/README-CVS.
