Last chance for Midas 2.x to 3.x upgrades

Wed 19 May 2004, 11:30 PM



by Ben Langhinrichs
We released Version 3.00 of the Midas Rich Text LSX back in February of 2003.  Since then, we have offered a discount of 50% for anybody wanting to upgrade from Version 2.x to Version 3.x  Most people have upgraded, but there are still some hold outs who still use Version 2.51, or earlier.  Well, your time is running out.  At the end of May, the discount ends.  People upgrading after that will just pay full price.  We have sent out emails to everybody, we have contacted a few larger customers directly, but time is running out.  Upgrade now, or pay more.

Frequently Asked Questions (and Answers) about the Upgrade
  1. Do I have to upgrade, or can I keep using Version 2.x? Nobody has to upgrade.  Your license for Version 2.x is perpetual.  On the other hand, Version 2.x is NOT supported for Notes/Domino 6.x and higher, and you will not be able to take advantage of the many new features.  Still, you can use Version 2.x as long as you like.  We just advise strongly against using it with Notes 6, or even with Notes 6 generated rich text, as it can cause some odd data corruptions.
  2. Can I still use Version 3.x with Notes R5? This is one of the most frequent misunderstandings about the Midas Releases.  Version 2.x supports R4.5x, R4.6x and R5.x.  Version 3.x supports R4.5x, R4.6x, R5.x, ND6.x and ND6.5x, so there is no need to worry.
  3. If I buy Version 3.x for R5 now, do I have to upgrade again when I move to ND6 or ND6.5?  No.  The Midas Version is not tied to the Notes Release.  You may need to download a different version from our website when you upgrade, but the same license is used for all Notes releases.
  4. My company doesn't move fast enough, or doesn't have budgeted, the money to upgrade now.  Is there any way we can delay this?  Give us a call and we will talk.  I don't anticipate long delays, but we are reasonable people.


I have to say, when we announced the end of the upgrade discount, I anticipated a few complaints.  I certainly did not anticipate thanks, but two customers have done just that, thanked me.  Both had basically the same thing to say, "I couldn't convince my company to upgrade, and this gave me the ammunition to convince them.  Thanks!"

You don't have to thank us, but you still might want to take the opportunity to upgrade now.
