Hi,

I just want to let you know couple of things regarding to the future of CU3ER here on ThemeForest. This also apply to all other similar marketplaces out there.

Please be aware that CU3ER v0.9.2 is beta, it’s not finished release and have a lot of bugs. We’ve decided to drop off from further updating this beta in favor of v1 which will be significantly different in terms of setting, configuring & functionality. This is something we had to do in order to push CU3ER forward as an application and will allow number of new cool features that were not possible with current buildout.

Once v1 is out, we will shortly after discontinue offering support for v0.9.2! There is no reason to keep inferior beta version in life once v1 is out. What this mean that all current existing plugins, extensions, themes and templates will have to be updated by their authors to meet v1 functionality which will be more robust & feature rich than previous one. Please keep that in mind if you plan to build theme/template in the near future. Everyone who contacted us questioning about licensing, know that new version is on its way and there will be license model for various kind of CU3ER usage. While we will keep CU3ER usage free under the same or very similar license as current one ( http://www.progressivered.com/cu3er/about.htm#license ), embedding CU3ER in commercial templates (like ones here on ThemeForest) will require new license which will not be free. License models & fees are not determined yet and will be announced in respective time.

Decision to let ThemeForest authors to use CU3ER v0.9.2 on their commercial templates was the way off showing gratitude to Envato marketplace for the one of the first official CU3ER review – http://blog.activeden.net/industry-news/cu3er-3d-flash-image-slider/ and we think Envato and authors had great time to enjoy the benefits of that decision. Unfortunately, we have to put an end date to it, which is February 1st, 2010. Meaning, anyone who want to use CU3ER in commercial template released after February 1st, will have to obtain respective license. Hope you understand its decision that we have to make in order to offer equal treatment for all authors and marketplace out there.

Lastly, I’m not allowed to talk about the new features at this time but here is the one, among number of others, you will definitely like: CU3ER Manager – full featured CU3ER configuration & management application! :)

Thank you for all your interest in CU3ER and stay in touch for the news about v1.
