Whenever I start up Beta 10, I get a message about it expiring December 15. Is:
* there a plan to have a new Beta before then that will extend it?
* the full release going to be published before that deadline?
* the export to Scrivener 2 format planned to be implemented by that date?

Hi MrAndyPuppy,

As the deadline of every beta release approaches, there is always someone on the forum who asks this question, and the answer is always "yes". :D

No. Somewhere or other L&L mentioned that, but I don't recall where. If L&L released a major paid upgrade right before the holidays, they wouldn't get to have holidays. :oops:

Good question. It's possible it'll be in the next beta, although apparently it was one of the very last features implemented in Mac v3 beta. The thing is, L&L rarely give hints about new beta features, so you'll/we'll probably have to wait until 12/15 to find out. :mrgreen:
