I'll take this as evidence Linkman still is being more or less maintained.
Curt, "more or less"??  In my experience, Linkman is constantly being maintained.  

you're right, criticizing my wording, 'Diva'. At first I wrote "evidence Linkman still is being maintained", but then I realized I would be in trouble, if it wasn't. So to protect myself I added "more or less", without caring that this too would sound wrong, if it is maintained. Since the arrival of my license key, I have never received any kind of informations from Outertech, so I didn't think too hard...

It is true that Outertech is not very communicative with its users. E.g., there is no auto-update feature and no notification when updates are available.

However I will say that whenever I have needed assistance or support they have been very responsive and helpful. So I would say that this model sure beats the opposite. (Which would be lots of noise but no substance!)

Thanks!

Jim

I'm in agreement with the Diva. When new browser versions come out that break extensions, OuterTech is always one of the first to release an update to get their extensions working in browsers again.

Last time I had to renew my license they had just started offering the lifetime option & it was a BDJ sale so I greedily added the lifetime option onto my order. I haven't been disappointed with updates yet.

So very true. I've never received a notice of updates, but when I've needed one it's always been on the OuterTech web site waiting for me and it's always fixed any problem I might have been having (usually a browser update breaking the extension).

Dear Curt!

Linkman has been updated.

After Linkman 8.90 with major feature updates, version 8.91 is mainly a bugfix and compatibility update. Support for Firefox 26, Opera 19, Chrome 32, and SeaMonkey 2.23 has been added. Path sort will now also sort folders by name.

Several bugs have been fixed. Send to from explorer accepts now also folders, there is no more slow-downs when adding bookmarks from Firefox when Thunderbird is present, the user defined browser settings will accept now all browsers.

Attention Windows 8.1 + Internet Explorer 11 users!

(...) The reason it is available for download on BdJ is that it soon will be offered with a discount, 62% off, making it $14.99 instead of $39.

The reason I didn't purchase it myself is that sometimes I am really cheap in a not so logical way... the license offered was for 2 (two) computers, but I only have one computer, so what if your offer is fine?, I don't have two computers!
 :-[

In the end I used the discount code we have here at DC (for 1 computer), and added it to the discount code that Bits du Jour is offering (for 1 computer), and saved myself a few cent. A mighty fine deal...

Yeah, it's cheap, but not quite in the way I would want it to be cheap...
