   Yes, this I knew. Unfortunately I am not a programmer, but on the
positive side I hadn't done much work since the time the license
change was added so most of my work is embodied in the GPL'ed version.

   Even with that positive spin on things I'm still very disappointed
that the future for that program is not so bright. Ending up with two
versions, on GPL'ed and one not isn't a great outcome, and getting to
that point depend on finding another set of talented developers that
want to work on this technology. This is not so easy as I'm sure you
are aware.

   Anyway, that's life as they say, and I do have GigaStudio to fall
back on... ;-)
