This release uses Acoustid for fingerprinting instead of AmpliFIND plus a number of other features and improvements.
As part of this release I am happy to announce Jaikoz Pro, this contains additional features and improvements for Jaikoz power users not available in the standard Jaikoz edition. I just want to explain the reasoning behind this new version. Jaikoz was originally released in 2006 and customers who purchased Jaikoz back then still have free updates to the latest versions and that will always be the case, I never want my customers to be left with outdated software or forced to make a purchase to fix a bug. All fixes and the vast majority of enhancements and new features will continue to be available in both versions as you can see below, and no features currently in Standard will be moved to Pro only. I try to be very responsive to my customers needs and implement new features requested by existing customers but there is a cost involved and the wealth of options and features within Jaikoz can actually discourage some potential customers from making a purchase. So it makes sense to put some features into a Pro version and I think it is fair that power users who really want certain new features contribute to their development cost by purchasing a Pro upgrade. This option also allows me to keep the cost down for more casual users.
