Sounding like a broken record is sometimes the ONLY way to get things progressing.....so don't let up IMO!

Personally, I am dismayed that we haven't had any updates or notices about whats happeneing next in regard to CS updates. It's almost like Altium have drawn a line in the sand and that's it! I do know that resources at Altium are split between AD and CS......but it's been quite a while now!

I sooooo much want it to be better than it is in 3 or 4 areas, nothing drastic requiring NASA software engineers to get involved, just bug fixes and a bit of cleaning up some functionality.

Please Altium!

Ian.

Altium costs a mint, they can't say they are not able to finance development. CS falls off of the back of AD and is more expensive than other programs out there that are way more stable. They have made a rod for their own back by not just doing tiered licencing of AD. they frankly do not understand how to develop a good product or the industry they are supposedly serving.

I've just finished my third board layout this week without a hitch. I find CS to be very stable, can't remember when I last had a crash.
Ian is right, there are bugs which need attention but are fairly easy to workaround for now.
Of course we all have new features we would like to see but it's a very usable system as is.

A while back on the Newark support forum there was an email stating that Altium would make available a roadmap and development plans for CS. Said they would post such plans in 90 days or something like that. That date has come and gone a long tome ago. I went to look for that message a couple times, found it once but any reference to dates had been removed. Now I can't even find it. Guess it's easy to make promises knowing you can just delete them later.

I also started a topic asking when we would see the road map but as you have pretty much discovered they are simply fraudsters! I wonder how many people were tricked into handing over money under this false pretence for a license update expecting them to play nice now and that boys and girls is pretty much the definition of fraud in law! To take money from someone under false pretences! But aren't Altium now pretty much based in china now? so go figure! And of course the last time I downloaded CS it came with the updates already in it no need to install them after checking my licencse that was valid by a matter of hours before the year ran out, so I'm not sure why anyone had to pay money for the so called update if it now come updated for anyone....
