ST4 availability
#30
Hi Lou,

There are two realities here:

1) I have been spending much more time than I had hoped fixing the bugs in ST4 Imaging, customer support (I am responding to a post as I speak :-) ), and running a business. Keep in mind that Visual and Imaging share an enormous amount of code, and many of the bugs that I am fixing for Imaging also affect Visual. So its not as simple as every moment I spend om Imaging takes away time on Visual.

2) ST4 Visual isn't finished yet. There are a few new big features that are not quite done, and several changes that need to be propagated throughout the software, which is time consuming. ST4 has hundreds of functions and each of those has dialogs.

As for updates, I didn't think people would be that interested in hearing that I had finished updating the layout of a minor dialog, or been forced to painfully go through the way minor planets work (for the seventh time) due to a mistake that was destined to take months to rear its head. It seemed to me that most people would prefer that I worked on these things rather than write about them.

For the record, we are not beta testing at this time. I don't expect testing to take more than a few weeks with Visual once it is ready to go. Also, I did say that it could take months.

Here's your update: at the rate that I am able to work on it, and with the holidays coming, it is not going to be finished soon. Please understand that I am only one person, I am not lazing on a beach, and that there is absolutely nothing I can do to make things go faster. What I really need to do is stop making predictions about when it will be done. That never ends well. It will be done when it is done.

Time spent writing this response: 20 minutes
Clear skies,
