ajb:

Unfortunately it is not always practical to provide bug fixes separately from other functionality that may since have been incorporated in a module. In fact the only way to be sure of this is to plan ahead and take a snapshot of the source code of at the time of each public release.

If your business depends on selling software then starting to give it away just because there were bugs in earlier versions (very likely not of your making) would be a recipe for disaster.

If you want one instance of free bug fixes having been provided then look no further than the Toolbox modules, which were bug-ridden at the time of their original release. Yet (almost) the latest versions are freely available to all RISC OS users, including Iyonix owners.
