PerfectTablePlan v4.1 is now 'feature complete'.
have finished coding all the new features and are busy
completing the documentation and doing a lot of testing. There are lots
of changes to document and test, so this is likely to take several

PerfectTablePlan split into 3 products. The current product will become
PerfectTablePlan v4.1 Home Edition, which will work with
existing v4 licence keys. The two new products are
PerfectTablePlan Advanced Edition and PerfectTablePlan Professional
Edition. You will need to pay a fee if you want to upgrade from the
Home Edition to either of the new products. We will release full
details of how you can upgrade and prices when the production version
We haven't neglected our existing customers. In
fact, we have added over 30 new
features and improvements to the Home Edition and we haven't taken
anything out (apart from a few bugs).
We would really appreciate some feedback on the
new features and any problems that might arise in the new release. So
we invite all interested customers to try a beta
(test) version of PerfectTablePlan v4.1 before the official release. We
will send all beta users a temporary licence key that allows them to
try fully functional versions of the new PerfectTablePlan Advanced
Edition and Professional Edition. Please sign up for our beta mailing

We put a lot of
effort into finding and fixing bugs. But PerfectTablePlan is a large
and surprisingly complex piece of software and we can't guarantee to
find every bug that might arise on every possible system configuration.
So we would really appreciate your help in tracking down any problems.
As a token of our appreciation, the
3 customers that report the greatest number/severity of bugs/issues
with the beta will each receive a free upgrade to PerfectTablePlan
Professional Edition. Our decision on who will
receive the upgrades is final and no correspondence will be entered
into relating to this.
We hope that a
production version of PerfectTablePlan v4.1 will be available in
August. But we aren't making any promises. It's ready when it is ready.

implement than others. Here is one request we received recently:
would like you to add a feature that makes the people we
don’t really want stay home."
We suggest you put all the undesirables
on the same table. They'll soon get the hint...
