@Jeffrey Please download Artisteer 4.3 Beta from this link:
http://files2.artisteer.com/Artisteer.4.3.0.60728.exe

You can also install it in a separate folder on your system so it doesn't affect your current installation of Artisteer. Here is an instruction:

@Dave we plan to release Artisteer 4.3 soon. Currently we have the Beta version of 4.3 and we're working on fixing some issues found there.

If you have any specific issues, please contact Artisteer support to know the update/status of each issue that you've encountered.

Best regards,
Elvira

Hello Dave,

We are sorry that the new version didn't match your expectations. Let us explain some moments.

>> when you fix bugs in a version you should, send a patch to you customers, for the current version

The architecture of the application does not allow applying patches, so this is technically not possible - only a newer version can contain fixes.

>> ot call it an upgrade and charge them again for the bug fixes

In Artisteer User Agreement as well as in the FAQ section it is mentioned, that when purchasing Artisteer, a customer buys a license and one year of free uprgades and updates. It is not required, to purchase an additional uprgade when this period expires.

More over, except for the fixes, some other changes were done in this version including implementing Joomla 3.3 support and thus changing export type based on the version selected.

If the changes are not significant for you, you may use the version 4.2 as long as you wish, without further uprgading, or upgrade some time in the future, when another upgrade is released.

We would also like to mention, that we are constantly working on the new projects for our customers, which have a lot of important features some of them you may be interested in. You may consider trying out some of them.

Thank you for understanding.

No matter How you word it,, I paid for an upgrade 4.3 software and got only bug fixes.
I'm not in this to make money, I test and support what I feel is good or could have a good future,
I like to test and report what I test, although the Artisteer is a good product, I don't see it moving forward at all. And that is enough said about that., and your gonna need to change your attitude toward the future, or lose interest from customers. JMHO and if you want to prosper from this, you'll need a better product or do some real meaningful changes with-in the one year period, in order to keep your customers happy and coming back! I'm not new to this stuff and I had to learn everything on my own when started out. And I support many software packages for the mid to late 90's til now!

Antonina - Artisteer Team,

Dave is far from the only person that feels like way. I found Artisteer in 2009 and found it very helpful. Its a good product, but do to the glacial pace of development to keep up the modern standards in web design, its now sadly losing its usefulness. We need new features in order to justify the yearly cost, not Bug Fixes. Bug Fixes are just that. Fixing issues in the current version. I sincerely hope the new version(or the new product) has "a lot of new features". From the post in your news, Artisteer 4.3 has listed more bug fixes than features. Please state the New Features... I just don't see it.




Hello Artisteer Support? (Is this thing on?) :-/

I paid for the latest version 4.2 and one year later I can upgrade to 4.3 beta. and if I want the version with new features I need to purchase the 4.3 final. Because when the 4.3 final is released my license will be expired and I have to purchase an upgrade. and then the new license will last till 4.4 beta and so on. WOW amazing Artisteer.

Still no support being implemented for e-commerce solutions though. Which were first requested and discussed over 4 years ago.

Support for Joomla 3.3 is still a bug fix since Artisteer is meant to support Joomla templates any way... It's not a new feature at all.

But keep spinning the same lines. Word-of-mouth spreads faster than you'd like.

They don't understand, what we (the customers) want or they are not interested! Over 9 month, waiting for nothing. We paid for bugs, oh lord, what a joke!

I am think to but this software, as it is good, but how the company releases this software is bad. Sorry I don't have other words for it. If you look at how often they release a new version, as said, you just buy one version. By the time a new release/update comes out, your year is over.

I also asked this in a seperate post, but is it true that 4.3 goes into trial after one year? Really this must be a joke. I buy something for 130$ which stops working after 1 year? And I have to pay again?

Please tell me I am wrong and I can continue to work with 4.3 for the rest of my life.

It is not true about the trial. Once you purchase a license, you will be able to use any version which was release before and during one year after the purchase. You will be able to use these versions for lifetime. However the versions that will be released after one year will not be available if the license extension is not purchased(half price of the license). This means that you can wotk with 4.3 for the rest of your life. Pleasekeep in mind that the plugins that can be installed from Artisteer marketplace are not availble after one year without purchasing an extension.

I wouldn't hold my breath Erik for Artisteer 4.4 or 5.

The only updates they are releasing in a timely fashion is on their servers during export. Read the news section and you'll see they just did some patches today.

How do I request a refund fro themler licence that I bought?? The system is terrible and ever since I got it nothing but problems.
I rather stay with Artisteer for now till hopefully they will realize that their bad choice on merging with Temler was terrible.
