Clarion support discontinued.

 Cessation of support for Clarion as a development tool.

It is with great personal regret and indeed a heavy heart - that I have to announce today that we will no longer be able to offer our products with the supply of Clarion specific add-on's such as Templates/Classes/DEMO's and Installer.

In the last year or more our primary Clarion developer Craig Ransom who many of you will know from the Clarion community over the years, has suffered a serious deterioration in his health and personal circumstances and this has led to less than ideal support and development for our Clarion users and indeed not up to the high standards you have come to expect from us over the past 15 years and we have always sought to offer.

Additionally our own sales to Clarion developers (in common with many 3rd party Clarion developers) has declined significantly over the past years and in reality we have long been unable to make an economic case for continuing to offer our 3rd party tools tailored for Clarion use - our own humble beginnings as Clarion developers in 1997 - coupled with Craig's enthusiasm and dedication made it very difficult emotionally to make the tough commercial decision that has frankly been long overdue, to cease Clarion support.

Therefore we have decided that as of today we can no longer confidently provide our tools commercially for the use of the Clarion community with Classes/Templates and libraries etc.

We would be pleased to reach an accommodation with any suitable individual or commercial organization that wish to continue to create a set of 3rd party tools based on our existing offering - provided they are willing to maintain and update and support as may be required.

Should you be interested in doing so please contact me direct and I will be pleased to consider any suggestions that may be forthcoming.

Craig has promised that he will do his utmost to correct some known issues before fully retiring - as I understand it there are some problems with the scanning templates/classes and he hopes to be able to resolve these through some minor updates to be posted as soon as possible.

If any client has purchased/renewed one of our products specifically for Clarion use in the most recent of months with us we will be sympathetic to any requests for refunds subject to assurances that new end user applications have not been providing using updates released since their purchase.

May I sincerely thank all our Clarion clients for their support and loyalty over the years and wish them every success for the future.

If you dont want the Microsoft Windows 10 upgrade - be warned, you might get it anyway !!!!

Microsoft has faced criticism for changing the pop-up box encouraging Windows users to upgrade to Windows 10.

Clicking the red cross on the right hand corner of the pop-up box now activates the upgrade instead of closing the box.

And this has caused confusion as typically clicking a red cross closes a pop-up notification

The upgrade could still be cancelled, when the scheduled time for it to begin appeared, Microsoft said

The change occurred because the update is now labelled "recommended" and many people have their PCs configured to accept recommended updates for security reasons.

MS Update Window

This means dismissing the box does not dismiss the update.

Brad Chacos, senior editor at the PC World website, described it as a "nasty trick".

"Deploying these dirty tricks only frustrates long-time Windows users who have very valid reasons to stick with operating systems they already know and love," he wrote.

Microsoft said: "With the free Windows 10 upgrade offer ending on 29 July, we want to help people upgrade to the best version of Windows.

"As we shared in October, Windows 10 will be offered as a 'recommended' update for Windows 7 and 8.1 customers whose Windows Update settings are configured to accept 'recommended' updates.

"Customers can choose to accept or decline the Windows 10 upgrade."
