    Default Notice for ending support

    Since we are likely getting close to the last patch for V7, it would be nice if Alpha said we will issue 1 more patch - any requests for bugs, etc., should be submitted immeadiately. And that all known bugs be addressed for the last patch.

    It doesn't seem fair that, to get support (and bug fixes, where necessary) one has to keep buying new versions. Does anyone know the average life-span of a typical application? It can be many years, particularly if it's well-written and/or does the job. Every time the DBMS is "up-versioned" the developer and customer has to decide whether to soldier on with the previous version, hoping it will be able to cope with any mods, new reports, etc., or spend what can be quite a lot of time (I've found) re-writing the application to work with the new A5 version.

    Fewer new versions, please! About as often as Windows would suit me!
