Change in software distribution policy
Today, we have made a very important announcement: The NewsMerge product is now given away totally free. We made a similar move some time ago when we offered the logger tool free of charge. However, logger is a little bit like "advertising" for the MonitorWare product line. This does not apply to NewsMerge. The basic idea here - and eventually in other things to come - is that we give away the product for free but charge for support. Especially for products that do not require considerable additional development, I think this is a fair offering to customers. In general, many are happy without ever contacting support and they go away totally free. If someone needs a helping hand, we offer it, but charge a little to feed that hand. Sounds fair to me...
