Default FPP license

What is the exact situation of our existing FPP license and new ?

I?m a FPP client of the 1rst hour. I bought my license via the page:
and the link to ?Digital River GmbH (share-it!)?:[300093163]=1&DELIVERY[300093163]=EML&languageid=1&stylefrom=300093163&backlink=htt p%3A//

The rules and promises of this license are resumed by: ? All Flash Panorama Player updates (including panorama engine updates and new plugins) are free for Flash Panorama Player customers.?

Other interesting links are:

1/ The original blog of Denis V. Chumakov:

2/ The last post of Denis V. Chumakov, October 2008, Adobe Flash Player 10 is released:

3/ The 1rst and only message of Trausti Hraunfjord, September 2010, Latest info and more regarding FPP:

Now, the November 2011 state:
Trausti Hraunfjord sent a message November 23, to the thread ?Inverted drag?:
In the answer, Trausti Hraunfjord explain the future of FPP enhancements available within the couple FFC+FPP. The last sentence: ?You being a member of the FFC community Per, will provide you with this

So, what is the future of FPP?
What about Denis V. Chumakov promises?
What kind of agreement links Denis V. Chumakov and Trausti Hraunfjord?
What are the rules of the FPP license for new clients?
Which version receive new clients?
Is the original license from Denis V. Chumakov cancelled?
Is new client required to buy a license for a dead product without warranty and support?

Please community, gives your opinion.

Denis promised all updates free. He did as he promised.
All the updates he delivered were free.
If he comes with a new update or plugin, It would be free as well, unless it would be a significant change.

To call FPP a dead product is misleading at best. It is very much alive in the FFC camp, and there are still many who use it in hand coding projects.
Warranty and support. Warranty: It works. Support: Check these forums for answers if you need answers. If you still need more answers, ask your questions.

If you purchased version 1 of Photoshop, you would have gotten free updates for bugs and errors and security things.
When version 2 of Photoshop came out, you would not get it as a free upgrade.

I don't understand why people think that a niche product such as a panorama displaying software, should be free and offer free support and free updates and upgrades.

Other companies sell support tickets... sell upgrades, sell updates... all of which helps them to stay in business.
