ST4 availability
#18
Hi Lou,

Yeah, I know how you feel. Believe me, I am frustrated too, and I am getting very tired of working 7 days per week on it. So here is where we stand today:

I just finished the help system for SkyTools 4 Imaging. It was another huge job because, like everything else about this new product, it is very complicated and there are so many things that have never been done before, and that makes everything ten times harder. Right now I am working on the final touches: things like keyboard shortcuts. I also have a short list of remaining bugs to track down. So it could be released as soon as the end of the week.

For the last four years, all of my work has been going toward SkyTools Imaging. Once I started down that path, I felt that I needed to see it through to the end. And of course, I did not realize that it was going to take so long. There were times that I thought it might never be finished. On the other hand, I use it regularly, and I am convinced that it is going to change the way a lot of people do imaging. So I am very happy with it, and very excited about sharing it.

I suspect you are waiting for SkyTools 4 Visual. I apologize that my attention has been so thoroughly taken away from the visual observing side. I didn't feel that I could do both at the same time. Once the Imaging product is available, I will turn my full attention to finishing and then releasing SkyTools 4 Visual. How long will that take? I really have no idea. If in the right mood, I can convince myself that it will be only a few weeks. In the wrong mood I can imagine it taking many more months. So that's all I can say about it: a few weeks to a few months. What I can tell you is that the things I have to do to finish it are much easier than what I have been working on. Unlike Imaging, there are no massive issues with no obvious solution that I must find a way to tame. Most of the work is already done, and I won't have to completely rewrite the help system. So who knows, it could go fairly quickly. I will try to do a better job of posting my progress.
Clear skies,
Greg
