@alexk I appreciate your coming back and weighing in. I am sorry you got to a point where you felt Freeter could not sustain your time and your efforts. Freeter is today in essentially the exact same state as when you stopped development on it. It isn't you but the fellow you sold it too that has disappeared. No development, no communication, nada.
I initially purchased a pro license and told two forums I am active on how great Freeter is (was). I am a bit embarrassed about my own reputation for sending people to Freeter. I jumped into Freeter right away. I put a lot of effort into making a console app for my desktop needs. I offered many suggestions - as did others here, which at first the new owner sounded like he was going to implement. Then, he just disappeared.
Soon enough I learned not to trust the Freeter environment. And yet, It is good enough to demand development - that is, if anyone took all the suggestions from users seriously and actually fixed things or enhanced according to suggestion, Freeter would be amazing, even revolutionary. I soon came to understand that awaiting change with Freeter (which is still going on) was not a productive use of my time.
Moving ahead I am not sure what will happen with Freeter. Some have expressed an interest in funding it - although I have very little in the way of resources to do this myself. I suppose it all comes down to what you want to do and what you can do about it. If the rights have been purchased and transferred, did you put in a clause that if it is not developed in a certain time frame you had the right to consider the new owner in default? And, even if you could, would you really want to take Freeter back? It doesn’t sound like you can afford the time (literally) to develop Freeter.
It seems so strange that the development of Freeter died on the vine. How many times have people said, wow, this is like nothing else. Wow, I am going to tell all my friends about this. You would think this would bode well for a products commercial potential. Or at least it could become a candidate for a crowd funding project, couldn’t it?
I have already moved on. On the Mac side, I have now discovered Curio and I am still amazed at what that app is allowing me to do with organizing my projects. I cannot depend on Freeter. I will not wait for Freeter. If something changes I will be very happy to revisit Freeter.
Also I wanted to clarify that MightyDeals campaign was not launched just to up the profits before it was sold. I started communicating with MightyDeals in April, and after setting all the things up the campaign was scheduled to run in the second half of August. MightyDeals campaign was a part of Freeter sale, and the new owner gets profit from it.

@ManjirS Among the buttons on the top right corner of the browser window (which only appear when you hover over the browser window) there is a "reload". You can reload the page using the right-click context menu on the browser window. Does this solve the cache problem?
What you have to understand is that this link was for a sale that happened last July-August. You can see on the upper right of that linked page:
Sold by Auction, Ended 161 days ago
The developer who successfully purchased Freeter in that sale, was active here for a couple of months. He expressed interest in the feedback that he got from customers here on this forum. Then, he disappeared. He has not made comment here in quite a long time. I have already moved on. I still am checking in to see if there has been any movement but as far as I can tell, Freeter development has completely stalled out.
I noticed that just before it was sold there was a sale on the full version. That was when I first discovered Freeter. Just after it was sold, there has been one and maybe two sales on Freeter. I don't like being so cynical but perhaps that was a quick way of wringing some cash out of the project and then, moving on.
I keep saying I want to give the developer the opportunity to speak up, and so far he has not. This is particularly odd since in the two months after the sale he was very active here on the forums.
I feel bad that I let two other forums know how great Freeter was after I got my license. Now it seems my reputation is sinking a bit as Freeter remains without any clear developer support or feedback on these forums.
