TaskPaper 3?

From Mac App Store I read: “I expect to release TaskPaper 3 in early January as a paid upgrade. TaskPaper will be $14.99 on release and then $24.99 final price.”

Kind of joke? Just kidding?

Why kidding? Some weeks ago a link to an interview with the creator of Taskpaper was posted on this forum, in which he announced that after years of starting curious, self-competing projects (FoldingText) and abandoning others (Taskpaper iOS) he had returned to working on Taskpaper.

Being a small enterprise it may be an economic reality that he has to charge for the upgrade but it is equally legitimate to come to the conclusion that the product is way overpriced for what it does and future development and roadmap too uncertain, borderline erratic.
All this is my interpretation, others may come to a different conclusion. Remember to always buy software for what it does now and not what you hope it might develop into.

For the brave ones: There is a preview version with 60% discount on http://www.taskpaper.com/.

Don’t get ripped off.  The purchase page does not mention it requires El Capitan.  Just tossed $9.99 down the drain and will have to go hassle with Paddle to get the funds back.

Well, I’m glad to report that it works well with El Capitan! Seems pretty stable, from the little bit of tyre-kicking I’ve done so far.

And yes, it’s got folding! Whoopee! Just a shame it hasn’t got Markdown-style rich text support, only the usual TaskPaper basics (project/task/note). But you can indent anywhere, for folding purposes. Nicely done!
