Is there really going to be a "New" version of CDBurnerXP or


Recommended Posts

Is there really going to be a "New" version of CDBurnerXP or not?

Seems the original announcement was back in 2004 about a "new" version and it's now well into 2007 with nothing but a request to "donate" to be a beta tester.

Who ever heard of such a ridiculous request? Like I'm supposed to pay you to be allowed to do your public testing of a supposed new version of your program. I don't think so.

Looks like a lot of people have "donated" but no results yet.

You're not just taking our money and running are ya????

And what's up with the "check for new update" feature on the old version of CDBurnerXP. It tells me that is cannot read update and that it failed, then puts up a screen telling me to go to some update.zip file in the CDBurnerXP directory and run it in order to update the program. When I look for the file mentioned there is no file.

Can you please give more details about your progress with your new version, what beta version you are on, just when will anything be forthcoming.

Thanks and have a great day.

Nope. You do not donate to become a beta tester, but if you donate, you may have a look at the recent progress. If only donate because you want the latest beta, you are probably doing something wrong.

Looks like a lot of people have "donated" but no results yet.

I guess only donors can tell ;)

You're not just taking our money and running are ya????

I'm still here ;)

And btw, the server our website is running on costs quite a few € each months.

And what's up with the "check for new update" feature on the old version of CDBurnerXP.

The old version needs to be fixed in many areas and I just hope that it will happen soon.

Flo said to Bill - "Nope. You do not donate to become a beta tester, but if you donate, you may have a look at the recent progress. If only donate because you want the latest beta, you are probably doing something wrong."

So unless I donate, I guess I will never know the progress that is being made. Not exactly conducive to your customers that would like to know the status before they decide to give up on you. I am only a new user of CDBurnerXP and this is not exactly impressing me with customer support.

From previous message Bill said to Flo - "Looks like a lot of people have donated but no results yet."

Flo's reply to Bill - "I guess only donors can tell"

I think you made my point from above. If I don't donate, I will never know.

Flo also said to Bill - "And btw, the server our website is running on costs quite a few € each months."

I realize that it takes time, money and effort to produce a good product, but it also takes the loyal support of your customers and fans. Without them you have nothing. All I'm asking is to be given an update on the status of CDBurnerXp and is there a projected date for actual release of a new version.

Flo's final comment to Bill was - "The old version needs to be fixed in many areas and I just hope that it will happen soon."

Soon huh. You've kinda been working on this for about 2 years now, so "soon" I guess means something a little bit different to you than it does to me.

I guess I will just have to look into my mystic ball and try to predict the future because you are not exactly forthcoming with facts and dates.

Don't really mean to jump on ya this way, but when I tried to check for updates using the update feature in the present version that I have, and it told me it could not work and then I go to the web site and can't find anything out about the new version unless I give you some money........hmmmmm.

Am I interpreting all this wrong???

Well, gotta run. Thanks for any help and information. Now go have a great day.

People never cease to amaze me. This piece of software is offered absolutely free with no strings, nags, or ads. These jerks complaining about having to wait for their free software tells me they are clueless about what it takes to develop and test any type of application.Since I'm sure that the CDBurnerXP developers are all independently wealthy with no families or other obligations to worry about, they just can't understand where their free software is. Probably the same type of people that line up at the post office the first of every month and then complain that their welfare check is late.

Okey, so I amaze you by asking if there is really going to be an update after waiting for almost 2 years.

Yes, I know it is free, but when in very early 2005 they stated that there is going to be a major revision and then 2 years later there is nothing new......well, I think we have a right to start asking questions.

I know what developers have to go through with all their obligations, but if it's not going to be a full time job in developing this particular program, then state so on the web site. Let users know what is going on.

Tell us up front that there are independent developers working on this program and that this is not their full time job and that it may take just a bit before a new update is forthcoming.

I only got into this 2 days ago because I had downloaded what I thought was the latest version of CDBurnerXP. Just to make sure I ran the update feature from within the program.

Guess what.....it didn't work. Told me I had to run another program from within the CDBurnerXP directory in order to update the program. I searched where it said the program would be but nothing was there.

So, I go to the web site looking for information about the program and find that the latest version for download is the one that I have and that it is from 2004.

I figure, well okey, maybe it's one of those programs that nobody works on anymore and has no support.....but then I read that donors to the web site can have access to beta information about the new version.

Well, I have been a beta tester for several programs and none of them ever said I had to pay in order to gain beta information or to have access to the beta version for testing.

So I started asking a few questions and at least got an answer about my updating failure problem......."The older version is broken in many ways and I hope it will be fixed soon."

That answer did not exactly instill confidence about a new version coming out anytime soon as it has already been 2 years in the works.

I think you can see my point in all this.

If not, meet me at the post office.....I have to go pick up my welfare check.

First, please don't use the word "customer" here. You are no customer. No one here is. We don't get any money from our users, not even website ads until now. The only thing we get is donations, and these (should) only come from people who are already absolutely happy with our software.

I very well know that a new version is absolutely overdue, but since I'm not a developer of the program itself I can also only wait and rely on the promises the developers are making. Eventually we'll see a new version.

Hi there,

first let's say that - from the view of the user - it is really annoying, that it takes such a long time to have the possibility to get a new release. At this point i agree with the thread-starter.

On the other hand: Let's be fair! Developing software is sometimes a pain. Not only that you need a more or less expensive test environment (different Operating Systems, Test Tools etc.) you sometimes have to do some urgend bugfixing on the old version or a different project. That's one point. The other is, that you normally get NO money for software, you release for free - instead you often have to pay money for traffic, hosting, development tools etc. You might have noticed that the installer was made with Install Shield - go and have a look, what this software costs: You might be surprised. And - some people forget about this: You also normally have a private life and maybe a job. So developing freeware often is some kind of a sick hobby. ;-)

As an user you should either respect the work of the developer and accept his release plans/strategys or you may choose to use any other product you like. Maybe you have to pay for it then. On the other hand you may decide to support the developer with some dollars or euros. Often at least 5 or 10 dollars are welcome, because they may be enough to pay the hosting for a month and that's not so bad at all. Some more dollars and you may raise the motivation of the devloper to spend a bit more time on the project.

Anyway... CD Burner XP is quite a good piece of software. I use it since the last years and i am almost happy with it. It is really annoying that there is no (public) release which deals with that crappy Windows Vista. But i'm sure that we will see such a release one time.

Please don't complain about the policy of the developer(s): If you are alone, you are both: Happy about testers but you will be also happy if you have a day or two without thousands of questions and bug reports. So from my point of view it is not too bad to say: You donate some dollaras and you may have a look on Beta-Stuff. If you complain about this, you are probably on a wrong way and you might be happier with some kind of commercial software. Why? Because "Beta" means that there might be major or minor bugs currently unidentified or unfixed - Beta Software is normally not considered Stable or for Production use and that's why i say: It's nothing for you - at the first Crash, broken Media or Bug you surly complain again about this "crappy" Stabillity ;-)

Sincerly,

Axel,

I do, in fact, respect the work of any developer and I do accept their release plans/strategies.

But, can you or anyone else tell me just what those plans/strategies for CDBurnerXP are? Oh, sorry, you can't tell me cause I haven't donated any money yet.

Also, a lot of users have contributed monies since the start of this revision thing back in 2005. Just how much motivation do these developers need?

Seems pretty simple to me.....users have been contributing (sometimes 2 or 3 times) so......"GIT 'ER DONE".

Now go have a great day.

:shock: Well I've been waiting for so long for this new version that I'am becoming more than a little disillusioned! I agree that the providers of freeware should be offered strong support but this is beginning to become ludicrous! Anyone taking that long to develop any type of software in today's cyber world is doomed to FAILURE!!! Most of the products we buy are outdated 6 months after acquiring them! Much software becomes obsolescent before being fielded! The longer it takes to develop this burning software the more problems will be encountered because of the rate of development of the cyber world is so much faster.! I wish the developer's of this application GOOD LUCK!! and best of fortunes! I'am going to proceed with InfraRecorder which is Vista ready and burns DVD's to DL! It is easy to use and works with SATA DVD drives!! I love it! Maybe next year when they finish the development of CDBurner I might switch back but doubt it!! :lol:

wonkabear, people like you are the lowest form of troglodyte imaginable. You fly into these forums with attitude and badly spelled angst to have a tantrum over a piece of software you have paid exactly nothing to use. What the hell makes you think you have the right to expect anything at all from the developers? Have you donated? No? Then what makes you think the developers owe you anything at all? The people that have donated can see the progress to the new version and know they aren't getting ripped off. People who haven't donated can't see that, but then again they also haven't lost any money either. Is it disappointing that software this good isn't updated as often as we like? Sure it is, but to come in here like a 4 year old that's been denied a wanted toy just shows you to be nothing but a troll. If you think the product is good and want to know where the next version stands, donate a few dollars and find out. If not, then shut your festering pie hole and sit down. Either way, leave your entitlement minded, petty anger at the door.

Just a few words for mediation and thoughtful consideration... the web is going to the Dot Netframework whether we embrace it or not.( at least until some new phenomenon occurs) the developers are farsighted and understanding. They elected to halt developement on what would become obsolete in the ever nearing future and turn their attention to embracing that future. This meant learning how to code and debug in this Brave New World. This is quite an undertaking. Great insight and courage guys. A lot of before-ware will go by the wayside in the new framework... Many I would venture to say will abandon developement because of the challenge and hardships involved. I have watched this baby develope and these guys are offering an excellent gift to the world. Please be patient and you will reap your reward. You can certainly go away but I believe you will come back one day with quiet disgrace and pleasant surprise. I know it is a lot like being told you have a birthday soon, my child, and that birthday keeps getting further from your desires. The challenge is a strong one but these guys want to offer the best they have to those who can use it. They do not want you to trash your other toys because of their rush to meet some arbitrary deadline. We reap with Patience the Hope of our Desires.... I too am anxious but console myself with the diligence of these developers. I trust if you were completely Honest, you would admit your impatience with the waiting for what you also Believe to be a GOOD THING. Peace to those who can read and understand ...patience to those who can not... Great Work guys

Hey Guest......no need to start cussing (kinda shows your mental capacity).

Geewhiz, it's just a friendly discussion about the progress of the new version of the program.

I don't expect anything from the developers other than what they, themselves, say they are going to do......produce a new version of their program.

I don't think that a potential user should have to pay just to find out the status of a program that they may want to start using. And even if they did donate, the donation would only allow them to read some words telling them that the program is supposedly coming along and will be finished sometime in the future.

I think the developers owe their potential users a little more explanation than....."I know it's broke and hope it will be fixed soon."

Actually, I don't even use this program any more. Not since the version I had would not update, referred me to a program that was supposed to be on my system, yet was not and I could not find any updates or other information unless I donated some money. This, even tho the developers say it's FREE.

Well, if it's FREE, then why would I have to donate to find out it's status.

I don't feel I am owed anything and what I have displayed is not petty anger. It's just hard, honest questions about a program that I was desiring to use and if found to be beneficial I would have donated to the developers....as I have to many developers and web sites.

If a site or developer does not respond to questions and produces nothing within an extended time frame, then users may want to question the use of their donations.

All I've done is ask hard, honest questions in an effort to find out when a new version will be released to the public and apparently I am not the only one that finds the length of time, delays and explanations frustrating.

In checking the forums, I found some 800 unanswered questions, most of which needed help with CDBurnerXP. This does not exactly invoke reliability and user satisfaction.

I suppose we could fuss and cuss all night long about this, but I do have to go clean out my cave so I can entice some nice fresh meat into it for my troll appetite.

TTFN and have a great day.

Servant,

Great reply and finally an explanation as to what has happened to the development process of CDBurnerXP.

I am not a programmer, developer or anything close to it. I am just a "joe on the street" user. Don't pretend to understand Netframework and don't really want to.

But at least now I know what is going on. That was all I was asking. And since I see that there are quiet a few versions of NetFramework out there, then this process could take even longer if things keep changing with NetFramework as they seem to be doing.

I will now be happy to sit back and wait to see the final results of this adventure.

Thanks again for the explanation.

Now go have a great day.

Wow, I've never seen such an ungrateful bunch.

Bill picked up the software 2 days ago but has been waiting 2 years for an update? What problems are you having with the current version, other than it not finding an update?

I've been using this version for less than a year. It seems to work fine.

Hi,

Some words of mine too here.

I used cdburnerxp for some time. It's a nice piece of work and will suit the needs of many people.

So if you're happy with it, why insisting on a new version? Unless you are 1 of the unlucky who have to deal with vista, there's actually no need for. Oh... I know many folks are infected with "I need to have the latest version" virus, but maybe one should act a little bit less vendor brainwashed.

If there's ever gonna be a new version... so be it. If not, and you really need some feature cdburnerxp does not have, find another free tool that does or draw your wallet.

One can kindly ask the developers for an update on the progress, but since we're no customers, there's no reason why they should listen other than generosity.

I don't know reasons, but many things can have happened (in their private lives for example) which make developing hard for a while.

Above of course does not mean that I am not curious ;)

I am constantly surprised how people complain about free things. I work for a non-profit where we try to help people who are suffering get back on their feet so they can go back to work and be productive. The problem is, some people just don't want to change. They just want people to serve them while they gripe and complain. Not everyone is this way, but the few that are, ruin it for the rest. When it is free, you are at the mercy of the giver. It is a sacrifice for them. Where is the sacrifice in complaining? No reason to swear at them, it is a character flaw. Just forgive them and move on. Sending them on to another developer was a great solution. Sometimes we need to shake off their dust and move on. People shouldn't be punished for making a sacrifice. They should be praised for it. Thanks to the developers and supporters of CDBurner XP.

Okey, I surrender. You guys have finally made me realize that this is going to be an exercise in futility.

Here are the sequence of events from my point of view.

1 - I obtained CDBurnerXp a few weeks ago and used it to burn some CD's. Worked just fine from what I could see.

2 - After about a week of use I hit the "update" feature and it did not work. I was referred to a program that was not on my system and told that I would have to run it in order to update CDBurnerXP. Not finding the program on my system I decided to go to the developers web site to see what the latest status of the program was.

3 - The only information I could find was that in January of 2005 the developers said they were going to be making and new version of the program.

4 - I searched for information about the new version only to be told that unless I donate (give money) to the developers, they are not going to tell me what the status of the program is.

5 - I ask myself.......If it's supposed to be a free program then why would I have to pay to find out it's status.

6 - I post in the forum asking is there really going to be a new version and if so when.

7 - So far I have not received any reply from the developers other than...."We know the old version is broke and hope to have it fixed soon." They also said, "If you want to know the status, donate to the web site" or basically words to that affect.

8 - I start wondering just what has been happening over the last 2 years plus that prevents the developers from letting their potential audience know what the status is. I also wonder what has happened to all the monies that have been donated to the web site during this 2 (almost 3) year period.......some users have donated more than once.

9 - So far, still no concrete answers from the developers, but a lot of discussion about my troll like childish behavior just because I have asked some hard and pointed questions in an effort to gain knowledge about a program that I would, in all honesty, use if I felt that I was not going to be left hanging in the breeze with a piece of useless software.

So, I surrender to all you people that want to give your money to maybe get a look into that magical crystal ball that all developers seem to have. Will you get a new version or not......only the phantom knows for sure.

It's been real and it's been fun, but it ain't been real fun.

Ya'll go have a great day. Me....I'm going fishing.

Nice to see some discussion among users here, unfortunately that became a rare thing over time.

Let me explain all this to you guys a little more.

First of all, you do not have to pay anything to find out about the status. The status of the project is pretty much obvious: There is no new version yet, development is going on slowly and it will still take a while until we see something new. You can even have a look at the 3.5.101.6 alpha version which is comparable to what 4.0 will be.

Now let me elaborate on the current situation. You might already have noticed that I am not quite a developer, but "only" doing everything else but the development itself. The actual developers are Stefan and Fredrik (stha, frha). After 3.0.116, the development has somewhat taken the wrong path. CDBurnerXP has been rewritten for .NET(1.1), trying to put all previous features back in. That consumed a lot of time and in the end was useless, since we later had to decide on reducing CDBXP to the essential features in order to provide a stable and maintainable program. Then .NET 2.0 came, and another rewrite has been decided (I would not have agreed, but well, who cares). Basically CDBXP has spent waaay too much time on rewrites. We had one from 1.x to 2.x, from 2.x to 3.x, from 3.x to 3.5 and from 3.5 to 4.0. In particular, none of the recent rewritten versions have been finished. So many wrong decisions (which includes not to use version control systems, not being open source, ...) combined with a very limited amount of development time adds up to virtually no progress. I don't like the situation, and I would change it if I could (nope, not even I did ever see a single line of CDBXP's code).

So you might ask yourself: Where is CDBurnerXP going?

I can only answer this question from a user's point of view, since I currently have - as said before - no more insight into the development than any donor would have.

It's actually a quite difficult question. So let me start what has been promised by the devlopers to me:


    [*:c3c7f]there will be a new final version, including many needed features like multilanguage support
    [*:c3c7f]the new version will be maintained -> new releases on a regular basis
    [*:c3c7f]new features will be added after that as well, reportedly they have some good ideas

Now, the past has shown that promises are rarely kept. There already are some 4.0 beta versions, so it's not that they don't do anything. However, updates take still waay to long. Often many weeks were needed just to fix a couple of minor bugs. It's been almost two months since the last beta, and the most important thing (an updated language file so that translation can finally continue) is still missing. So to be honest, with the current developement speed CDBXP is going nowhere (my pessimistic personal opionion). The main problem I see is that they don't let anyone help them, even tough they obviously are not able to continue the developement at acceptable speed.

With some luck though, they'll at least finish version 4.0. Possibily this is used as opportunity to reconsider some options like open source, what might ensure further (more rapid) development in the future.

Another issue is: You got it for free, so just be happy.

This is not the right attitude. CDBurnerXP has built up a huge user base, you could probably even live on just the money that could be generated with (unobstrusive) website ads. Continuing to disappoint the user base and letting everything rot you have built up in many years of hard work is a bad thing and a pity.

You all have a good reason to complain. Yet that won't help anything, since I doubt that the developers are able to keep up with reading all the forum posts and also they have received all the neccessary criticism directly from me already (which is usually encountered with promises about what has been and what will be done in the future).

Flo,

Thank you very much for the very informative status update on CDBurnerXP. At least from my point of view it is much appreciated and as you yourself said.....needed to quell the uprising.

Yes, discussion is a good thing.....a very good thing. And as I hope the other users now see, can produce results.....sometimes good, sometimes bad......but nonetheless, we are discussing and in some cases fussing and cussing. 8)

So a quick question here: This CDBurnerXP web site.....is it yours or the developers or what. From the gist of your answers and explanations about the program, you seem to be kinda like a "middleman".......not really on the inside of things but a filter from the user to the developers.

When money is donated......just who gets it, where does it go?

You say we can look at the latest "alpha" version. In most developement circles an "alpha" version is the first try at a program and not exactly ready for release even to beta testers as it has a lot of bugs and other stuff that needs to be fixed prior to even the test (beta) release.

Or are you saying that the "alpha" version is the release after beta testing?

In otherwords are you going......alpha/beta/final release.....or........beta/alpha/final release.

Now, let me apologize to you and all the rest of the users on here. Not for the questions or perceived attitude they may think I have.

No, I am apologized for getting everyone's dander up and starting a discussion. Didn't realize it would create so much furor over such a minor little thing. You guys can now go back to sleep and I promise not to say "wakey wakey".

Anyway, thanks again for the status update and I will wait.....sorta patiently......to see how this adventure goes.

Besides that........It's almost Harry Potter day......woo hoo.

Now go have a great day.

The server is owned by the developers (in Sweden), and in particular paid by them. This is luckily not a problem because of the donations which go to the developers.

Somewhat I feel like that, yes. I'm also some sort of QA, so I make sure that bugs are properly fixed and releases do not contain any serious or annoying bugs. In the good old 3.0.x times this worked very well, but nowadays it requires a lot of patience on my side...

You say we can look at the latest "alpha" version. In most developement circles an "alpha" version is the first try at a program and not exactly ready for release even to beta testers as it has a lot of bugs and other stuff that needs to be fixed prior to even the test (beta) release.

Well, the 3.5 alpha is quite usable, but still incomplete. 4.0 is currently in *beta* since all features are included.

Finally! I say again FINALLY someone is saying the things that many of us are thinking.

This software is mutating to abondonware, just like DUKE NUKEM FOREVER.

I can only speak for myself and I must say I´am

absolutley amazed what freeware programmes do in their spare time. There are so many good

freeware programs on the market some even better than commercial ones.

BUT CDBXP is becoming a farce. Only promises and no results what so ever. FLO is holding up the banner

and I salute you, but be honest do you really believe there will be a new version?

And what about donations? For what? For seeing an still unfinished version after 3 years? Something is wrong with that, even you

enthusiasts must see that!

As far as the developers go : Just say what you up to and no one will ask questions.

Even if it is freeware you are losing users by the hour! The world don´t stop turning and wait for CDBXP
