My life does not depend on this, but it would be great to be a part of the beta group.

And, yes, our new release will come out in 2015. The private beta test is starting next week.
martin,

I have used Softmaker since the 2008 version. Recently decided you had gotten good enough to purchase the 2012 version. So congrats. Looking forward to 2016, although I may not purchase it, as 2012 is pretty good for my purposes.

I am excited by your decision to replace mailclient with Thunderbird... particularly if you swat some of its bugs, like the one where it chokes on too many messages in folders. And Lightning is an excellent addition.

If I had to add one feature to your suite, it would be to add in a menu, kind of like LibreOffice's... For my purposes, I had loaded up your four apps along with emclient and ProjectLibre (I use project management software and do not particularly care to have MS's original for that). I loaded all of them into QSel, which is a nice little substitute and portable too, as I took advantage of your ability to make a portable app out of Softmaker, although I must say it is a bit of a strange bird; your process to produce portable apps that is.

Much thanks for a superb product. I use the portable versions on my PortableApps USB stick as I'm on the road sans computer much of the time and the regular version on my hard drive.

Thanks for listening.
