Software

RELEASE ANNOUNCEMENT
A new commercial software is being prepared. It will provide both graphical user interface and a command-line tool. The software will be available for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows 7 or higher. Only Intel and compatible processors will be supported. Release of version 2.0.0 is expected for February 2019.

The Windows version will not be available from Microsoft Store and will not work in Windows 10 S.

WHY DO WE START AT VERSION 2.0.0?
In the past a data analysis tool for R-project was available under a free license. This program is no longer distributed. It was not strictly versioned hence we cannot easily express which version is the next one. We decided to set the version number to 2.0.0 in order to emphasize that the commercial version will be considerably enhanced and the software for R-project is declared obsolete.

WHY TO BUY THE NEW VERSION?
The program will feature new algorithms of mathematical gnostics useful for uncertainty assessment, quality control, financial analysis, and much more. In comparison with the old R-project software several algorithms were improved and made more stable. Novel decision logic based on entropy is applied and new algorithms were introduced. It is now possible to solve tasks that were not addressed by the R-version. In addition, the software is more user friendly.

PRICING POLICY
Our intention is to keep moderate prices with discounts for educational institutions and free licenses for students so that everybody can affoard to buy the license. We know that start at version 2.0.0 breaks the semantic versioning policy. Versions 2.0.x will play a similar role as 0.x.y defined by semver.org. We want to release version 2.0.0 soon but after thorough testing. It means that we will not be able to incorporate immediatelly all features as promised above and the documentation may not have high quality. As a reward to those who buy it we will offer lower price. Every following version will be more expensive and at 2.1.0 a regular price will be reached. The price will include free updates to all versions 2.0.* and a discount for upgrade to version 2.1.0. To say it precisely, license for version 2.0.3 and higher will be more expensive than license for version 2.0.2 and from the release date of version 2.0.3 the previous versions 2.0.0, 2.0.1, and 2.0.2 will be taken out of the market
