Almost a year since last update?

Post by uBlast » Wed Nov 06, 2019 4:40 pm

I am a bit disappointed with PrimoCache development. Almost one year since the last update says a lot of things for me. Is the software totally bug free? Cause almost a year without any fix or improvement means that or the program is perfect the way it is now, or updates are just lazy for both fixes and new features. This section of suggestions is full of good ideas like the possibility to choose an individual app to be cached not depending on current "most used programs" learning way to work. I like PrimoCache, Im a lifetime license user and just would like to see more active development, no ofense.

We are preparing the version 4.0. I'm sorry for the delay in new version. Most features and problems remaining to be implemented or solved are quite complicated and require big changes on the program's code architecture. So we have to be very careful about these changes and do lots of feasibility study and testing. We also appreciate your kind support to us, and we'll do our best to complete the new version as soon as possible.

I was about to purchase PrimoCache until I saw this post. I too am concerned about the lack of patches or updates in almost a year. I guess it's possible PrimoCache hasn't needed updates, but with ALL the issues Microsoft has had or introduced in the past year with Windows Updates, I'm having a hard time believing PrimoCache hasn't been affected (though I am currently running the 3.0.9 trial in Windows 10 1903).

Also, one of the first posts by support in the post about 3.0.9's release almost a year ago is, "We're also working on the 3.1.x branch which will bring more features and performance improvements."

Even with my M.2 NVMe main hard drive, I'm noticing performance improvements, so I like what I see so far, but the scarcity of updates is concerning.

Is there a target release date for either v3.1.x or v4?

With a product that's been around as long as Primocache (which was originally called FancyCache), there's less and less to do on future updates. Mostly it becomes feature considerations and feasibility testing, which draws out the "patch/update" process to be that much longer.

Primocache is a highly robust, flexible, and stable piece of software. Expecting a 6-month update schedule isn't too realistic. I've been using the package on multiple machines for the last 7-8 (?) years and I can say from personal experience - there is nothing as good out there. I trust production-environment machines to it's code.
