| To answer the questions of many customers who have been writing: When are WavMan and IMs Plus going to be out of Beta?|
Here is the official word: I do not impose deadlines upon myself. I tried doing that once, and the result was a period of buggy versions of WavMan and Messenger Plus. This in turn created a lot of support mails which slowed me down a bit. Since then, I discontinued deadlines. I found if I work at my own pace...things get done right. That said, WavMan and IMs Plus have been in Beta longer than either you or I would like. IMs Plus will done here in the next few days as I have finally ironed out the last few issues that were stalling the program. As for WavMan, I am still working out the issue in which WavMan slows down or "freezes" when uploading a file while chatting. I know why it's occurring and it's being fixed. After that it will go through one more beta version and then it's going gold.
This is the best timeline I can give at the moment. If something happens which changes this "plan", I will post about it right away. :)
Sometimes AOL, in their infinite wisdom, makes changes to their software. Sometimes they affect our programs, but mostly they do not. A few weeks ago, AOL did something to the UK version of AOL 7.0 which required my attention. WavMan 10.x was affected. Unfortunately, this put other projects on hold for a few days. Our UK customers are just as important as our US customers. The issue was addressed and a new version of WavMan 10.x was made available to fix the change.
Remember folks, although there are several people assisting with support and registration, there is only one programmer...me. :)
Thanks for everyone's enduring patience!
