You got an email saying this? I recall way long ago something about it, but it sounded more like a “thinking about” instead of an absolute.
I agree it kinda sucks, but then, I want to keep my editor strong, so I’ll be paying. Would it help if they changed the version number to 10 or something? Look at all the changes listed for 9.1, they have obviously put a lot of work into it. And they had to restruct the company, hire/fire etc… If a little cash from me keeps a strong programmer on board, I’m all for it.
But, then, I bought 9.0 for 135 bucks (I think). $99 bucks is kinda expensive upgrade price (even if it was a version 10). $65 would be half price, I think thats more reasonable.
