jv16 Powet Tools 1.4 Released (Plus Shock)

  Jester2K II 18:02 18 Jul 2003

jv16 website now jumps to macecraft.com wesbite with the following announcement.


The long development and testing process is now over, the jv16 PowerTools 1.4 is finally here.

This might, however, be a sad news for some of you, since from now on the jv16 PowerTools is no longer freeware. The decision to convert it to a commercial product wasn't easy for the program's original author, Jouni Vuorio. He has been working in the field of freeware system maintenance tools from the age of 17, now at the age of 21 he had to made the call. The biggest actual change will be in the quality of the software.

Also, as a thanks from Jouni all the people who have helped him with the development of jv16 PowerTools 1.4 have received a personal license for free.

Read this this morning-any idea how much they plan on charging?

Can't find a price anywhere.

Shame - I can understand but i hate it when it's sprung on you like that. He could have said something instead of all his "Its coming soon" posts.....

Also like Mailwasher - suddenly new version drops Hotmail support & only allows one account unless you pay. No indication that was coming...

Good luck to him. Think I remember us talking about Jouni Vuorio 3 years ago Paul and he deserves all he gets now.

Anyone on broadband want to e-mail me a copy of the previous (Free) version? All links on the net now point to the new 30 day trial version...

Preferably versing Final (i think it was) which was the last one before the 1.4 Beta came out...
