Thanks for the information, Matthias.  I am a registered user of  
ListMagic v. 1.0 and would appreciate it if you could send me the v.  
1.1 that Eric finished.  I was only asking about passwords because I  
was aware there were still bugs in the library and would have used the  
password to fix them.  Eric and (anyone else for that matter) is  
certainly acting appropriately to password-protect his intellectual  
property.  I was an early Apple II educational developer and had to  
watch helplessly as one copy of my programs would be sold to a school  
district, which would then break the copy protection and photocopy the  
manuals.  "But it's for the kids," teachers with bootlegged copies  
would say to me when I complained.

Why should you?. I cannot remember that Eric ever promised to give the  
password to the customers.

In the FAQs of ListMagic you can find the following:

"Why are some ListMagic stacks password protected?
Three substacks are password protected in ListMagic to protect those  
who have paid for using the software and, of course, their code is  
strictly related to ListMagic itself and to it only."

Three days before Eric died, we were in contact about final  
localization to german and about some bugs (e.g. script editor errors,  
when placing more than one widget on the card and some other). He  
corrected that and told me, that this would be the last corrections  
unless there would be other serious bugs. He wanted to release a final  
1.1 because of the integration of ListMagic into Revselect. The 1.1  
version on his site is from 7th january and does not contain these  
fixes. I have a version 1.1 from the 10th january, which  include  
minor enhancements and also the mentioned bugfixes. As this stack will  
run in demo mode while not unlocked, i do not see any problems to send  
it to you, if you are interested.

The version 1.1 runs also as a registerd version on your machine, if  
you have unlocked 1.0 on it.
