This has been on my mind since the painful and joyful migration to Keyboard Maestro and I sort of already have an answer to my question and that is this… Peter would Keyboard Maestro continue to be updated and improved upon should you choose to move on to some other project in your life? As you probably know QuicKeys lost their sole programer, and way back in 2011 they said they were looking for a programer but to this day still haven’t found one (odd).
QuicKeys 4 Lion News
We began working on the update for Lion the first week of April, well before the public release of Lion on July 20, 2011. Our programming team for this project consisted of two individuals, one of whom had a twenty-year relationship with our company.
Programming was to be done off-site. Though we felt development was not proceeding quickly enough, we were assured that though the task was difficult, progress was being made. This situation continued through September. In October we learned that the lead programmer had an aggressive, fatal disease. He has now passed away. Because this illness was kept secret from us, both our company and you, our customers, have been harmed. Legal action is under consideration which has caused us to be more silent than we would have preferred.
In October we began searching for a replacement programmer to complete the update for Lion. Despite the offer of significant compensation, we have not yet found a properly qualified applicant.
We are disclosing this problem hoping that someone may know the right person who could complete this work. We estimate that about a month (or more) is needed for completion. We are willing to negotiate significant compensation to a qualified candidate who can complete the task. We are also offering a $1,000 award payable to the person who refers the programmer who successfully gets this software shipping within the time period that we negotiate with the candidate. Send referrals of qualified programmers to us at this special e-mail address, firstname.lastname@example.org
We again apologize for our silence. We ask for your understanding and assistance in helping this application have another 24 years providing greater productivity.
fyi - To allow our full effort to be directed to finding the right programmer, this forum will only allow posts pertaining solely to current and past versions of our products.
My solice in switching to Keyboard Maestro is that Peter has mentioned that he doesn’t do tweaky things that break in the new versions and Keyboard Maestro 2 still works in current versions of the OS (not sure if that is still the case with El Capitain).
Keyboard Maestro follows the rules, so sometimes Quickeys can do things that I wont do in Keyboard Maestro, but on the other hand, Keyboard Maestro version 2 released in 2007 still runs under Yosemite.
Anyway I know there are no garentees in anything, espeically in software but is there anyone that knows the back end of Keyboard Maestro and could keep adding new features and keeping things fast and current? Or is Keyboard Maestro 100% the brain child and workings of Peter?
I hope this isn’t impolite to ask, it has been an elephant in my room since the switch.
