The Decision to move to bundling the extensions was made on the basis that we would be able to offer better support for a smaller product line.
at the hart of the problem was the fact that we had over 30 individual extensions. Any time a new update was released to one extension, the amount of testing needed to ensure compatibility across the entire line was astronomical. It also meant that some extensions simply sat for a long time without getting any updates to address issues simply because there so many other extensions in front of it.
We were trying to release an update a month for existing extensions, with the shear volume of extensions, some of them where going 2 years without seeing an update.
The decision to bundle the extensions has no "Profiteering" motive behind it. the motive is entirely based on offering a better product with better support.
We offer a very generous Upgrade policy for customers who own the extensions that are included in Data Bridge or design Extender. Our upgrade policy is to offer a discount of the amount that you have spent on the included extensions up to a minimum price of $39.99 for design Extender and $149.99 for Data Bridge.
