In terms of capabilities, nothing's changed.
But yes, the pricing for the Commercial Edition has changed.
Most developers were coding for multiple platforms, and by the time you
add up all the platforms from their formerly-complex pricing structure
it wound up that most of us were paying far more than $500 every year,
while a relative few who developed for single platforms were paying less.
So in your case, I can understand why you would prefer the old pricing
But if you're developing a commercial app, is $500 truly prohibitive to
have an engine as capable as LiveCode doing so much of the work?
And if it's not commercial, why not use the Commercial Edition?
As Monte pointed out, the encrypt and decrypt functions can be used to
protect data, and much more securely than the method used for stack
