No. Software is a constant process of development. Changes in the market, regardless of whether Research, POD or KDP, have to allow us to react variably. We want to offer users and also ourselves the greatest security and the best perspective. Lifetime deals are usually done when you want to fund something or when you don’t plan to update the software much. We do neither of these things, that’s why we don’t and will never offer lifetime packages for our software.
