Please note: If a bug occurs in Version 1.9999 to Version 2.0 and you or anybody else reports that bug, then we will fix it not matter what. If a bug occurs in Version 2.01 to Version 2.02 then of course we will have to renegotiate the terms of our contract and the price for Version 2.0 up to Version 3.0.We will not “create” a bug in Version pre 2.0 and then ask for money for Version 3.0. Version 2.0 will include many bug and Feature improvements a long way from the current version (if you look at the current Version History you can see our track Record and we will not do a release for “money making reasons”). So to cover our work we need to cover our expenses.
