There are a few threads out here talking about how this is a dead project, and not to expect anything new. I totally agree, but if they did come out with something new, I would definitely give it a try, especially is they offered a trial version. Simplify3D knows they cannot bring something to the table lacking the features to make it a competitive product.
For now though, I consider this forum with all the posts about Simplify3D being dead, kind of a support group. I come hear for support, whenever I think about how I wish there was a new version. Kind of like grieving over the death of a loved one, and just needing the support and to talk to someone.
