The list that Geoff gave out sounded like bug fixes to me, but I'm
happy to hear that may not be the case. And who knows, I might even be
happy to pony up $299 or whatever the upgrade is going to cost.
But more important than the cost of the upgrade, this overly long
thread could have been truncated if there had been more communication
from RunRev or those of you in the know. Instead of sending pithy
comments off list, those same people could have simply pointed me/us at
the 2.2 release notes. And then we could be having a substantive
discussion rather than ranting about things that we can only guess
If I were running RunRev, I would want to know why it took more than
100 messages, many of which were unnecessarily critical of my company,
before I gave out any real information about the release. Maybe it's
purely coincidental there has been a "lack of communication" thread
going on at the same time as this one, but then again maybe not.
