The first version of VueMinder Calendar Pro (originally simply named VueMinder) was released on Aug 27, 2008. We've dug through the archives and found a screenshot of the original version:
For comparison, here's an example screenshot using the latest version (5.1.1):

For the most part, these features were all based on the excellent suggestions and feedback we've received from our customers. And we're not done yet! We're hard at work on the next version (5.2), which will add a number of new and improved features and should be released within the next couple of weeks. Looking out a few months, we have even more features planned, such as automatic synchronization with Google Calendar, a note/journal editor, contact lists, and much more. We continue to gather feature suggestions from our customers and make improvements as fast as possible. Our ultimate goal is to provide the most powerful, full-featured, and easiest to use calendar program on the market. In our (admittedly biased!) opinion, we think we're succeeding, but we couldn't do it without the support of our customers!
If you feel powerless to affect the features of calendar programs provided by other bigger companies, don't despair! Give VueMinder Calendar a try, or take advantage of the discount this week. If you find it doesn't provide a feature you'd like, shoot us an email. We promise your voice will be heard, and we'll seriously consider any suggestions you may have. As mentioned above, almost all the features added in the last year have been based on customer suggestions, so you can feel confident that we'll take your feedback seriously. Give us a try!
