Happy New Year!

We're about to enter 2009 here in Scandinavia and our friends in New Zealand, Australia, India and Ukraine have already entered the New Year.

2008 has come to an end and I would like to summarize the year that passed. 2008 was by far the most successful year in the EPiServer history and the product development teams have been - shall we say - busy? 

In 2008 we;

  • announced the EPiServer Most Valued Professional (EMVP) program
  • showed off at the Internet World in London
  • we arranged the 2008 EPiServer Partner & Developer Summits in Stockholm, Sweden, with over 400 attendees from all over the world
  • released our CMS migration tool
  • launched the Create+ package
  • shipped the EPiServer CMS 5 R2 - our best release ever
  • were the biggest group from a single company in Sweden attending the Microsoft PDC in Los Angeles
  • released the long awaited Relate+ package
  • launched two Open Source projects; WikiX and TranslateX and more will follow
  • released the second edition of our connector for Microsoft SharePoint 2007
  • shipped updated versions of EPiBooking and EPiStore for CMS 5
  • saw the birth of EPiServer World (the artist formerly known as Knowledge Center)
  • shipped a few service packs (SP1, SP2 and SP3) for CMS 5
  • launched EPiServer Connect for Microsoft CRM and SalesForce
  • opened offices in Finland, South Africe and the Netherlands

I probably forgot one or two very important things but the bottom line says it all. We rock.

What about 2009? It would be stupid of me to make any promises on this evening, but 2009 will be a very interesting year for all of us!

See you next year!

PS. Promise me that you will send me your little feature wishlist to me, either as a comment here or to my e-mail address.
