Question on BeerSmith Future?
« on: December 11, 2005, 11:50:40 PM »
Just curious if a new version is going to be released anytime soon? It's been a while since the last update. I was looking around and didn't see any discussion on it. If I missed it I'm sorry.

Jeff,
 I have no firm date, but I am working on a new set of updates.  I'm hoping to get some significant work done over the upcoming holiday and establish a release date after that.  

 If I had to guess at this point I would say late Spring.

 As always the update will be free to all registered users.

Thanks for all your hard work. You know how cranky us users get when we don't get our updates.
I'm looking forward to the next update.

Jeff,
 Still working hard on it, but as always the list of items continues to grow.  Always a challenge to decide when to cut it off and turn it over to the testers.

 I will get something out in a few months...no hard date established yet though.

If and when an update is released, will it be free to registered users?  I am debating buying beersmith, but I don't want to be hit up for a new registration fee if a new version is released in the next few months.

Yes,
  The update will be free to all registered users and will also be backward compatible.

   Purchasing a copy now will not limit you in any way once a new version is ready.

Cheers!

Jeff,
  I was sidetracked a bit creating BrewWiki.com, but I'm back working on BeerSmith again now.  I have the Calendar features implemented and many of the smaller features. I'm working on a brew timer and templated brewsheet now.  No firm date, but I'm getting closer to holding a beta soon.

Cheers!

Jeff,
  Doing well - I have a significant amount of time coming soon that I plan to dedicate to it.  BeerSmith is doing well, and has a bright future.

Thanks,
Brad

Is there any chance - just for the sake of throwing a bone - that you'd list some of the features coming in the new update?

Hi there!

    I am a new brewer and have been looking at different software packages to help me along.  I have downloaded Beersmith (trial version) and so far really like it. Seems easy to use and I love the brewsheet feature and used it for my 2nd ever brew yesterday. The bullet checklist really helps keep things moving along.

  From the sounds of it, an upate is around the corner.  Any hints as to when or maybe some of the new features that will be added?  ;D

Great to see active participation in development! Kudos in that.
