Short of a miraculous increase in sales (well over 100 new sales) received over the next 4 weeks, Astro IIDC will very likely be shut down forever by the end of September 2012. Sales are at a 8 year low and our Mac consulting business which has helped subsidize Astro IIDC for the past 4 years is essentially gone. To be 100% clear, shut down means there will be no sales, no downloads, no replacement keys, no updates and no support - AT ALL. So if you purchase a license it will continue to work until you have to replace that hardware - but no new keys will be issued for it after that.
We will be releasing Astro IIDC 4.09.00 on September 1st 2012 - which very likely will be the final release.
Unfortunately, that is the way it is. I would like to thank our customers for their support over the past 8 years and hope Astro IIDC continues to function well for them going forward.
