sa110: "Perhaps their programmers had other contractual obligations and ROL simply had to wait for their time."
That's certainly a lot more plausible than the other lame excuses being trotted out.
Regardless of the reasons, and despite attempts to lay the blame on others and all the rest of it, it's still an awful long time for no updates to be released. I let my Select subscription lapse the best part of a year ago. There are a lot of people in the same position, and this sort of situation is hardly going to encourage us to think about re-subscribing.
Sadly, that means less funds to develop Select, and thus a vicious circle. Select seems more and more in danger of being marginalised.
