I'm sure that the Coffeecup team are fully aware that they have lost potential customers (and money) with the delayed release of the pro
version. Sadly if the product isn't ready to be launched for whatever reason, then there is nothing to resolve that situation. Until they do get it out on the street it remains a future
product that is currently unavailable for general sale.
I have personally replaced the word 'soon' with 'eventually'. Whilst it may not bring a smile to many faces, at least it is far more accurate given the protracted development cycle of this product.
It may be that the program is being packed with more features, or interactive tutorials are being developed, but until someone from Coffeecup communicates that fact, anything else regarding the pro version is now just assumption perhaps?
