PD Artist 9.1? not
With all the buzz and activities for PD Howler
9.1, we haven't had much time to update PD Artist.
We're now looking at possibly releasing a 9.1
udate for PD Artist. It's in testing. Can't tell

Howler and we end up doing a later update, like we
did around 8.1/8.2... but who knows what the
future will bring?
If you use PD Artist 9.0, stay tuned. Hopefully
we'll have good news for you soon. In the
meantime, keep on enjoying v9.0

ready to upgrade to the full-featured big brother,
PD Howler, you can get a strong discount for doing
so. You can also use the same discount to switch
from an earlier version such as PD Artist 8 to PD
Howler 9. Interested? Just ask!
