SQLGrinder version 2 status

Current users of SQLGrinder are probably wondering about the status of version 2. I've been mentioning it to some users on and off as it IS currently in development. I had hoped to have it finished before now but it was put on the back burner temporarily by another application we are working on. Fear not, it WILL get finished and released, just not in the time frame I had originally intended. The fact that it is a from-the-ground-up rewrite isn't helping it get out the door any sooner, but it DOES perform much better than the current version, and the work being done on the new application will actually help the SQLGrinder project alot because of code reuse. I hope to have preview screenshots posted to the site before too long, so stay tuned...

Why the delay? Well it made more sense to spend time adding an additional application to the stable. This should eventually help fund future SQLGrinder development by adding to the overall pool.

How can you, the reader, make a difference, and possibly make things happen sooner rather than later? Well if you've been thinking of buying SQLGrinder, please do so. For the next 30 days or so, until March 5th, we're making purchasing cheaper than ever by offering a 20% discount on each purchase of SQLGrinder. That's only $39.96. Just use the code MAKEOVER4SQLG when checking out at the online store for your instant savings.

While some people enjoy developing Mac software in their free time or as a hobby, sometimes giving away the results, we're actually trying to make a living at it, so every bit helps get us there.
