    1. Re: [CLOOZ] data input migration suggestion

    3. These are all reasonable proposals, and will try to work them in. Understand that Clooz 4 will be a substantial rework of version 3, setting up a more flexible platform on which to build all sorts of capabilities in the future. One of the reasons for going to the annual update support renewal system (vs charging for upgrades to new major releases) is that once the initial version 4 release is accomplished (of which the primary focus is on providing at least the version 3 level of functionality) we can continue to roll out enhancements monthly. I believe 2016 is going to be an exciting year for Clooz.
