I develop a desktop application for WIndows 7/8/10 & OSX. While bugs/limitations remain on how my software functions on the windows desktop platform, regarding features that should be working well on v4 (i.e. windows multitouch), now with v5 I will not have access to these fixes if they are ever made.
And really, I don’t care about making plugins. Nor do I care about android, ios or embedded, where it seems nearly all improvements are in Juce5… So for me, as a developer of desktop software only, JUCE 5 is not a particularly interesting deal, it is just a vague promise that things I feel I already paid for will be fixed, if only I now pay a bit more…
Juce is fully modularized - please, charge me what you think the improvements to desktop only is worth in Juce5, and keep me from using the plugin and mobile modules.
I understand that you spent a lot of effort to improve plugin format support, and mobile platforms. But I don’t want to be paying for it!
