Not that I can see: Hermes is as far as I can tell a new piece of software and not a commmercial rebadge of POPstar but a completely new application.
But even it it was: A commercial rebadge of some free program which is then actively developed further and enhanced is better to have available especially when the free software is not or barely developed anymore and to have both the free and the commercial application around gives you the choice.
New developer sought for website gallery app Coder John Williams said he will make his shareware Pic_Index software freely available if no one else is interested in taking over development within the next fortnight. He said: "If anyone is seriously interested in developing it further, please contact me. This would be subject to continuing to support the existing user base (including me) for an agreed period, and to actually having concrete ideas for further development." John said he hadn't worked on the BASIC program in years and its website domain was due to be renewed, which promoted this month's action. Discuss this. Published: 22 Mar 2009
