I find Martin Wuerthner's comment thought provoking.

I guess all software developers face a dilema over how much time to invest in enhancing existing software as opposed to creating new product.

And, of course, it's quite possible that more financially rewarding opportunities outside of RISC OS altogether come along to steal a developer away from the platform.

I reminds me of a David Pilling comment, quite some time ago, about how he realised there was a point at which an existing product was best left alone for a while and a new project developed instead.

A lot of ArtWorks users will be disappointed it ArtWorks has hit this situation. Or, perhaps, it is just that PDF support, in particlar, is difficult and time consuming to add.
