Hello All! I wanted to explain about EverNote 2.2 Beta (which is quickly moving towards public release) and upgrades. The Beta is a full-featured version with all advanced features in place. Advanced features expire in four months since your installation, which should be a plenty for anyone who wants to upgrade to the paid version. We are planning to offer free upgrade to the full version to all Beta users (I can't promise it 100% though). Backing up your databases before trying the Beta is always a good idea.
We would also like to point out that the comparative "feature matrix" of Big3 note-taking apps at http://www.donationc...oteTakers1/index.php
isn't accurate anymore since EverNote 1.5, let alone 2.2. The roundup greatly influenced our product roadmap and many of the "missing" EverNote features have been implemented. Examples are "have multiple databases open", "link to other notes", "extensive import/export capabilities", "note titles".
