Thank for the tremendous feedback that we have received on Finesse and the Developer Release thus far. We had a few technical challenges around editing the realm properties file and confusion around the build numbers, but I hope this didn't detract too much from the experience. If you have any feedback on the developer release, please don't hesitate to reach out to me (email address is below). I'm very interested in your experience with the UI, API, and gadget creation. If you have built a gadget, I would love to know your experience and see a demo. If you would like Cisco to help publicize the gadgets you have done in Finesse, we would love to help with that as well.
One other point that we should have been more clear on...please note that the Developer Release is a new install only. If you had installed an older version of Finesse, you can't upgrade to the 8.5(3) Developer Release. It requires a clean install.
