That’s incorrect. Support is and has always been ongoing for all HindSight products. Our support forums have activity, with responses, as recently as within the last hour.
What we have announced is that there will not be a Panorama X version of our products. That has nothing to do with Panorama. It’s a complete reflection of the state of professional photography and the willingness/ability of the few pros remaining in the business to invest in software. While there are at least a few hundred still using the software on a daily basis, the market simply is insufficient to justify the investment of several hundred hours to rewrite InView & StockView.
So yes, HindSight Ltd is shutting down in the near future and we’re declining new sales. Our products DO work on High Sierra.
But, I’m among the many people who depend on what those products do. They were, after all, inventions of necessity. I still have many needs not satisfied by Adobe Lightroom or any of the few contact management systems. What I’ll do about that remains to be seen.
But #2, I’m very excited about what Panorama X has to offer and have already been working with it for some years. I haven’t done any new programming in it since last night. I’ve worked from scratch to build a new contacts manager in Panorma X. As you know, there simply have never been any contact managers that covered as much ground. Photo cataloguing…? I have to figure that out.
Meantime, it’s been years since I received a paycheck from HindSight Ltd. My work there has been mostly out of goodwill to customers like you who go back decades. My bread and butter these days is custom projects on Panorama Enterprise. I’m looking forward to the day that it’s on Panorama X. It’s absolutely on my radar.
