How were purchasers of Bria 4 supposed to know Bria 5 was coming out in June? Do you think, given how they have handled this, the would say on their site “Coming soon Bria 5 — don’t buy Bria 4” ?
There’s no choice to wait for Bria 5 if you don’t know it’s coming out.
There’s also no fair expectation that the software you buy in 2017 will no longer work with a maintenance upgrade to your operating system in that same year.
Sorry but we’re going to have to disagree here. It’s a disgraceful attitude from Counterpath and I will be going elsewhere, along with quite a few others.
