TaskNAV 2011 (aka TaskNAV FREEWARE)
1. Why freeware? The TN author has reached an advanced age and is now receiving various indications that he must 'wind down', i.e. retire. From time-to-time, he will still be able to maintain the software, but only on a hobby basis.
2. Software support via e-mail is still available though it may occasionally take a bit longer to get a reply, and from time-to-time, the TN programs will still be updated "..as time permits"
3. In the TN2011 freeware, there are no activation code checks nor any requirement to register as a user. It's available to all.
4. And to all of the existing users - many thanks indeed. Your support for the various DOS and Windows versions of TN has kept the show on the road since the original DOS release in 1993.
5. Meanwhile, TN2011 continues as copyright 'freeware'. All users of older versions should update now to TN2011 to remove the need for activation code management as well as getting up-to-date with the current freeware version.
6. All remaining references to fee-based TN software licences in the TN literature and on the TN web site should be ignored. Such 'fee' references will be removed as soon as time permits.
7. Have fun! Any questions, please contact:
