After 15 years and four major versions, I’ve made the difficult decision to stop active development and support of Forte. Forte has been a very rewarding product to create and I’ve enjoyed meeting many of you, even if only online. However, given the current market for music software, and my own time , I don’t see how I can invest in the product going forward with enough time and quality to keep it competitive.
Forte licenses will continue to work as before because there is no dependency upon the web site, but I will no longer be releasing updates, selling new licenses, or servicing the support portal according to the following timeline:
- February 28, 2018 – the online store will close and I will no longer sell new licenses.
- May 31, 2018 – The support portal including the forums will shut down.
This should enable anyone who still wishes to purchase a license to do so and also enable users to download the product for future re-installation (including back revisions.)
