NVT offers lot of very efficient tools for free, the downside is you can't expect to be delivered as often as paid product. Andreas is probably busy on projects that afford him incomes. I know he developed business class products, his main incomes.

NVT projects are never abandoned, sometimes they just go down in the list of priorities. Not the first time it happened.

Yes, this is all true, Umbra. I've donated a little to NVT.org and intend to donate once again, but would feel better about doing so if there was a bit more sign of life.

No matter, OSA has been good on here and continues to run without error or hitch. Certainly if I had to choose between that and ERP, it would be the former, hands down. Guess one'll have to wait for some kind of confirmation.
