Hi Cloudy Nights,
Thank you very much for the feedback!
We have only just released V7. And, an update is coming this week. And, more updates quickly thereafter. V7 has required a tremendous investment from the company in terms of time, energy & financial resources. We have many developers working on the program at this time. And, we are deeply committed to the success of Pro Plus 7.
The beta-testers have done an amazing job so far, and continue to do so. We are very grateful for their invaluable efforts to date. Most beta-testers are going to continue working with us as well, pre-testing the new features, options, and databases, as they become ready for release. With the support of our community V7 is going to go from strength to strength as quickly as possible.
Version 7 is a tremendous undertaking. The program has been re-written from the ground up to bring everyone a clean new user interface, 3D exoplanets you can land on, 3D stars, and many other ground-breaking features. But, most importantly, Starry Night V7 has been re-written to make the program viable for the long-term future. We can build now for many years to come. This is just the beginning. There are more incredible features, like SkyFi technology, to implement. We are all very excited, and committed to the future of Version 7 - and, really, we hope you are too! V7 is, after all, for you.
We know there are some short-comings at the moment in 7.0.0, but we are working very hard, and very fast, to get all the issues fixed, to get the patches released though the update system. So, in short, I hope you can be patient and, if possible, even work with us. Let us know what the specific issues are. We are listening to everyone! If you have an issue, we want to know about it.
If you discovered any issues in SN7 please come to the support website, and submit a ticket. Many issues are already known, and already fixed, and you'll see these improvements in the 7.0.1 update later this week. Other issues are known, and the developers are working on them everyday. But, still, you may find an issue that is not known to us. So please, submit a ticket and let us know about it.
Version 7 is a big commitment to our software platform - for our loyal Starry Night Community - and with your help, we can all make it the best Starry Night yet!
Thank you for supporting Version 7
