This is great news and I applaud everyone involved (especially the
developer!), but I tend to avoid software that is "locked" to my newton.
 It is over 10 years old after all and while working fine now, I may
have to get a new one in the future and would loose this software, my
backups made with it etc.  I have already been bit by that more than
once when I had to change newtons rendering the software I purchased
unavailable.  Thankfully some of those items were released into the
public domain.

Regardless I wish again thank everyone involved.
