I'd like to stop this ballony that what we've done with DP2 is just re-releasing old software. I've seen this said in two or three Drobe articles, and it's garbage.

We've employed someone full time since Feb/March working on the Iota apps, and very few RISC OS companies can claim such a commitmant to their products. DP2 has been one of the most complex 32bit updates that we have undertaken - large chunks have had to be re-written or re-worked. It is telling that the original authors (who are still around) didn't wish to tackle it!

Additionally, the infamous protection system has been largely dispensed with, making life for users much easier.

Similarly with Image outliner.

Ongoing development is likely, but will be determined by sales of what we've done so far.

Obviously I can't speak about APDL/Proaction stuff, but I know that pretty much every product we've taken on has been developed further (eg. EasyClip, AddressIt [til Royal Mail pulled the plug], DP2, Image Outliner and so on....
