I got your point but should be nice at least to advise when you change 
the way the product works. I just asked because I´m testing the new 
version together with the CVS Suite Trial exactly to see if it is 
interesting for me to buy the comercial version and thought it could be 
a side effect of that. But if it is a new March Hare policy you should 
at least warned about that.

Sorry to have bothered you, I will remove the message by myself until I 
decide do buy or not the commercial version.
