Ugh, please no.  Not another zombie subscription.  You’re killing us.  My interest in your promise of new features vanished when I read “we might consider a subscription”.  I’ll pay for upgrades or even if the dev is doing a super job I’ll buy a new license if significant new value is provided in a new release.  But I’ve banned new subscriptions.

I’d be surprised and very sorry if OmniOutliner were frozen for good (but I think that the headline of this thread will not help its prospects).

My outsider’s impression (and it is only an impression) is that the Omni Group’s development team’s efforts switch from application to application within its portfolio. This year may not be the turn of OO. I think a similar pause happened four or five years ago.

Paul,
To be clear, I was referring to a future ‘Pro’ version of SheetPlanner and not the current ‘Standard’ shipping version.

A ‘Pro’ or ‘Teams’ version will include collaboration and will either be a higher price point or a subscription.

I am inclined to want the revenue upfront to offset development costs and so a subscription for ‘Pro’ is unlikely, but still possible.

Like you, I think there is subscription fatigue…..
Peter

So you’re representing SheetPlanner as an alternative to OmniOutliner? From your promotional material and the reviews I’ve read, it looks to me like an innovative project planning tool with some simple outlining capabilities, but not an industrial strength outliner like OmniOutliner.

I certainly hope it’s not frozen for good. It’s near the top of my most important applications list. It allows me to maintain and organize information more efficiently and effectively than anything else out there right now. The only true competitor I know of was Circus Ponies Notebook, and it’s history.

Also, responding to a previous comment, I find it to be anything but “clunky”.
