i've done a really poor job of explaining the delays, and i can definitely understand why people are confused and irritated.
but the bottom line is as lanux says: FARR 2 isn't vaporware, in fact it's being used by tons of people and can be downloaded now.
it's not that FARR 2 hasn't been released -- it's that i've been keeping it as an "unofficial" pre-release longer than planned. typically with my programs i release the early beta versions publicly and then go on to improve and release as i go. i thought this time i would try out the approach of keeping a program in an unofficial pre-release state until i was really happy with everything about describing it as in a kind of "final" state, with a new website, tutorial videos, etc.
that's taking longer than i thought because i've got a few other projects i'm juggling at the same time.
