It would be really helpful if the developers could provide an update on what is going on with MD 2009. Either a target date for when it will be released, or at least a list of new features and bug fixes we can expect in the new version. Now that we're about two months past the originally targeted release date, couldn't you share some more information with us?

    John, I can't offer you a specific release date. We are hard at work on it. I will speak with Sean, our developer about compiling a list of new features/bug fixes we are planning in the final version.

    I know you have no specific release date, but how about a general time frame of the next release. Should I be checking every day to see if the new release is available, or would I be better off checking once a month? Or maybe which quarter it may be released, nothing specific, but just in general. Thanks

    I'm dissapointed with the level of communication from the moneydance group. You wonder if they are bussiness. The blog has not been updated since January. By the time the 2009 version is out, the 2010 from the competitors will be out.

    Well I would differ on that. They have stated on the forum that they are working on the 2009 version. That has been stated numerous times. We are just not sure when in 2009 it will be released. I was just interested in an approximate release date. Like which quarter.

    C'mon, out of business? Give me a break, there are employees posting to this forum on an almost daily basis. There's no firm release dates for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard or iPhone 3.0 either. Does that mean Apple is out of business?

    Jerry -- communication is not a strong point for Moneydance. The same thing happened with the release of Moneydance 2008. At one point they did give an estimated release date, but it wasn't actually released for another 7-8 months and didn't have the features that were promised.

    Truth be told, I don't think they (Sean) has a planned release date or roadmap, which is why he is hesitant to share any information. It seems to be a 'what do I feel like coding today' type of operation. My guess is that much of the effort lately has been on playing with the iPhone. It is unfortunate because I feel like there is a lot of potential for this software.

    Our next release will in fact be the MD for iphone app (coming relatively soon). MD 2009 will be released after that. I apologize I can't give a specific date (It won't be in 2010). We are hard at work on it (MD 2009) though, I promise you.

    Steve, I wish I could tell you for sure that MD 2009 will definitely be ready for the 3rd quarter but I can't. It will be released before the year is over, though.
