GNS3 1.0 Early Release – WE HAVE QUESTIONS!
I’d like to put together a thread specifically designed to put all of our questions together for GNS3 to answer for all of us to see. Also if you ask GNS3 a question about the Early Release and you get an answer, please post it here as well, thanks all.
Last Email from GNS3:
All we can say is Wow – what a response to the new software.
We had over 20,000 people sign up wanting to get access to it – and we want to be able to accomodate everyone.
It is because of this overwhelming demand for it that we have decided to do something different…
We are going to be Crowdfunding the New Version of GNS3 and allow everyone to have access to the Early Release of the New GNS3.Why are we Crowdfunding?
We have realized that the demand for the software is high and we need to bring in the right team of developers to build this software out to the quality you deserve.
GNS3 has become bigger than we have ever dreamed it could be; being used 2,000,000 times every single month, being implemented at Fortune 100 companies and in Tier 1 Universities.
We need to be able to provide a product that is of the highest quality. We know how many of you depend on GNS3 for your studies and for your work. We want to make you an even better networking tool.
What do I get if I contribute?
First off, thanks for wanting to contribute! Secondly, you will get Early Access to the New GNS3 – a year before we release it to the public. We want to be able to reward those who help contribute to the project and this is the best way to do that.
If you would like to use the New GNS3 – with all its new functionality – you will have to contribute to the crowdfunding campaign.
We also have tons of Perks and special Rewards for those who can contribute more.
Be an Early Bird if you want the coolest perks – we have a limited quantity of them so they will go fast.
What are you using the money for?
If we reach our goal, we will be able to release GNS3 within 1 year with the new functionality. We will use the money to hire high level developers in order to build a top quality GNS3 software.
But we have bigger plans as well. We want to have a Full Time support team, a FULL training program to help you train easily for your certifications (no more having to buy training from a bunch of different companies – you will just have to use GNS3).
We have budgeted for this and if we are able to meet our stretch goals, we can implement tons of awesome programs and features.
We want to make GNS3 THE TOOL for Networking.
How can I Contribute?
Anyone in the world is able to be a part of this. All you have to do is go to http://new.gns3.net at 00:01MST on November 20th. Be an Early Bird to get the best rewards!
This is a community based software – built around our users. We build products that YOU need to build better networks.
It is only with your support that we will be able to create the New GNS3 software. So please contribute to the New GNS3 software – and lets make this happen!
