The upgrade policy is outlined here: Upgrade Policy For New Releases
Basically, major and minor version numbers are irrelevant. A license comes with 12 months of free upgrades, after which you can continue using the last version you downloaded or pay for another 12 months upgrades. What that fee will be I can’t say, as we’re only in month 2 now.
I do have a vision for the product, but I’m also open to suggestions and feedback. But, I won’t be implementing features that a small number of users want. Unless I’m convinced that a particular feature will add benefit to the majority of users, it won’t be going in to the software.
There will be one product, not a product with 1,000 optional features. There will not be any features tucked away on “out of the way” menus because only 1% of users use them.
Atomic Scribbler won’t be for everyone. And it will be feature light, but with the core feature set as strong as I can make them.
It might not be the answer you’re looking for, but I hope that clarifies things for you.
