I’d say the most likely explanation is the folks at Kinook realized acknowledging that development would be discontinued would adversely affect sales and decided it was smarter not to announce that to the world. If they believe their product is mature, then they have no real obligation to tell new customers that it will not be improved any time soon… although leaving the roadmap up implies otherwise and probably should be removed if my speculations are accurate.

Pierre just put up the 2nd prelease version of InfoQube, which has a preliminary version of a calendar.  It can handle appointments, recurrences and limited categories, for now.

It’s worth a look - I’ve been testing it pretty hard and it meets many of my needs.

What a bad surprise!
The longer I used UR the more I liked it.

But:
It’s not over now. The current version is stable and has enough features for the daily work. Ths support is still alive and even bug fixes are will be available.

Optional tools:
- PersonalBrain v4.5
- Zoot 5.2
- SQLNotes (or InfoQube)

I can highly recommend PersonalBrain. For me, it’s like coming back home. See my tool jouney:
PersonalBrain v1.73 (year: 1999) -> ADM (2001)-> InfoSelect (2002)-> ADM (2003)-> UR (2006) -> PersonalBrain v4.5 (2008)

Where will be be in 2017?

I got the same feeling.

IMHO they mean it with the roadmap, but new releases might be much less frequent now…

Just guesses, though.

I think you’re dreaming. Kinook announced that further development would cease, period.

Sadly, I take them @ their word.

Then they removed that statement (probably for the reasons suggested here) & replaced it w some mealy-mouthed, double speak & they won’t clarify its ambiguity—see thread “What’s keeping you Busy?” on UR forum / suggestions.

Obviously, they have a right to do as they wish but I think it’s less than honorable to handle these matters as it currently stands.
