Alas I think you are true, Bill, I am afraid!
I have to agree with you although my work is not as impossible as you  
report yours. Obviously there is some serious management issue in  
Runrev which is not a new one... And this is a pity because  
Revolution concept drives a very productive development environment.  
And you are true, not taking for serious our bugs we take time to  
fill (for free, yes!) is reflecting a very bad quality and doubtfull  
respect against Runrev customers (and yes I dont - or at least I  
hesitate to - fill bugs since years-old-bugs are still unaddressed.  
Also these persistent attitudes make flee a lot of the professional  
developers... I would hate to get the news that Runrev or any other  
company resigns from continuing to upgrade Revolution. Will version 3  
be a new age for a better Revolution? Maybe some EurRevcon members  
will know soon.
I do not want to be too dark and I still have faith in those in  
Runrev who are actually trying to do their best in order to enhance  
Revolution. Because, yes, I am confident that there are still people  
in Runrev who work with pride and for quality... but this is a story  
I dont have any weight and this is better so. As you, Bill, my own  
weight is in buying future yearly upgrades.
