  • What a frustrating response...landing soon?

    COT's website contains the following wording on the "Buy" page...

    "Product updates are released monthly and include new exciting features added to the code generation library, code generator enhancements, and bug fixes."

    I interpret this statement as meaning for each license purchased, the buyer will also receive monthly product updates at no charge until the license expires. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    If I interpret this correctly then this is a false statement and we all know it. I assume that many people purchase a license with this statement being honored.

    I have an unlimited license and always purchased that level in the past. I sponsored the addition of the Firebird database to the core tool. I'm not asking for anything free except for properly planned and timely updates. That's all. Thank you
    • We will clarify the "monthly updates" statement and replace "monthly" with "frequent". The name of the product in your sales receipt clearly states "6, 12, and 24 months of updates".

      Update 8.7.0.0 is an ENORMOUS update. We have decided to start this year with the very significant enhancements to the product. It is not possible to accomplish these features in a month. The initial announcement of the release date for 8.7.0.0 has been premature. Our pre-release testing has revealed several flaws that needed extra work.

      Right now we are still polishing some of the new feature. Many of them you can see at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4tbC....

      Overall the release 8.7.0.0. is almost ready and may go live as early as Monday.

      The highlights include:

      * Inline Editing
      * Multi-level master detail pages
      * Native apps
      * Offline Data Processor
      * Data prefetching

      The feature called "optimistic saving" will come in the follow-up release 8.7.1.0.

      Presently we think that release 8.8.0.0 will be out within 30-45 days from the production date of 8.7.0.0.

      The roadmap at https://codeontime.com/roadmap will be updated when the release 8.7.0.0. is out. We will continue putting specific dates on the features and adjust them as needed.
    • Thank you, I appreciate the response.We've all been eagerly waiting for these releases so we can all move forward in our projects and internal timelines. We are your partners, you succeed...we succeed. Thanks again.

    We prefer the releases be as robust as possible rather than trying to hit a date. The road map is a great overview of work, features and indicative target dates. If, we as clients start using the road map as a weapon we are likely to see more conservative dates published to minimise the frustration.

    Think about it logically, do you really think the COT team want to keep the latest and greatest release in development just to frustrate clients.....I really don't think so.

    We are also keen to see the new releases, when the COT team assesses they are ready for production with full support.
