Here is another update of what happens next with LogMeTT.
As most of you know, the version 2.9.5 was released in March 2009 and later distributed as part of TeraTerm 4.63 package. Introducing licensing mechanism allowed me to see the actual number of the users of my tool. Right now, while I'm typing this post, the counter on the home page of this site shows 31,379 activations and keeps "ticking"
. This is pretty impressive number and definitely motivates me to keep developing LogMeTT further.
So, what is coming?
I almost completed work on LogMeTT 2.9.6. Basically, the only thing left to do is update of the help file. Following the requests of many users, I replaced user-based licensing mechanism with machine-wide licensing. The new challenge here was to make the tool compatible with Windows 7 which reduced non-admin user access rights to Windows Registry even further than Vista. The license will be now stored in plain text file in LogMeTT installation folder, which, by the way, can now differ from TeraTerm home directory.
My previous 2 posts in this thread proved that I'm not very good in forecasting LogMeTT release dates
. Still, I hope to release 2.9.6 until the end of October. As for versions 3.x, both free and Professional, please don't expect them to be ready for at least next 4-6 months.
