" As you can see from our news Famatech presented Radmin 3.0 beta on the CeBIT tradeshow. This version will become available for public download in April. Full release is expected in July-August, 2006.
There will be no more delays for release of Radmin Server 3.0beta. "
So.. now that it's October. Has a release date for Radmin 3.0 been set yet?
I see that the beta has already been extended an additional 60 days.. that 60 days will be up on Oct 10th. Does this mean the release date will be October 10th.. or will the final be dela..err... extended again?
I bought my license for ver.2.2 back in 2004, and was told then that, when version 3 was released (not beta, but final release) that I would receive a FREE upgrade to version 3 from version 2.2.
Your website pricing seems to contradict that promise by showing a "discount" for licensed users of prior versions.
What s the deal? Do license purchasers who bought before some unspecified time get a free upgrade, or do all licensed users of previous versions have to pay an upgrade fee?
Way back when I paid for my license, I ws told that I would get a free upgrade.....of course, I was also told that version 3 would be released "in a few months". We all know that that promise in 2003 and 2004 and 2005 was just so much ethereal hot air........so, am I, and other folks like me who bought a license with the promise of a free upgrade to version 3, going to get that free upgrade, or is Famatech going to f*ck us over and demand an upgrade fee.....
Maybe i got something wrong, but Activation Procedure [URL=http://radmin.com/products/radmin30beta/activation.php?print=Y]Radmin 3.0 Activation[/URL] states that "...For all Radmin 2.x users eligible for an upgrade we'll provide the instructions on how to get their new licenses..." and "...For all customers with Remote Administrator (Radmin) 2.x, who wish to upgrade to Radmin 3.x there will be conversion procedures. For example, all Single licenses (for two PCs) will be converted into two Radmin Server licenses..." and nothing is said about additional fees. Please correct me if im wrong
Hello, Marat Magomedov,AdministratorFamatech Support can you provide an update on the release of Radmin 3.0? You state Oct but have not seen the release. I will not go as far as to ask for a release date but can you provide the estimated release month?
I'm pretty sure we'll see Beta 3 before final release. There are a few too many bugs in beta 2 (e.g., the tiny black window problem so many, including I, have) to go from there to the final edition, I'd guess.
This company doesn't seem to be able to get it's act together. Version 3.0 has been just around the corner for years. The new beta seems okay but at the rate that they finish anything I'm not sure it will ever come out.
I wouldn't count on RAdmin 3.0 being released any time soon.
They've missed many release dates for the last 4 or so years already which is a shame. My company recently purchased a licence for 35,000 computers of a competing product purely because nobody was willing to risk their reputation with Famatech's (non-existant) support and missed release dates.
Ironically, we used Radmin 3.0 beta 2 as the benchmark for evaluating the competition.
Dmitry, I hope you read this and realise the emormous loss in sales your company has and potentially will suffer due to your poor communication and inability to release a product on time.

I have consistently urged my company (120,000 computers) to choose another remote administration program. They have not chosen the bid winner yet, but I have the satisfaction of knowing that Senior Management listened to those of us in IT who got tired of waiting for Famatech, and have removed Famatech from the list of Finalists.
