Could you further explain why you think that Antetype is not dead. I'd love to think that this is true.
I had to replace my licence because I moved machines and lost the previous one. I got in touch with Ergosign support, which handled the ticket just as before. I was told that a new public Beta was on the way. I have therefore no reason to believe this isn't true. Having worked in the software development business all my life, the only observation I can make, is that it's not good commercial policy to give no sign of live for a long time. Keeping your users commited is all about communicating. Maybe they weren't sure themselves what would happen and this is why they chose not to communicate. But for now, it seems there's still hope.
that sounds indeed awesome. Lets cross fingers that they soon release a new beta/version
