Modern programming tools make it easier to build multiple apps from the same source code, so we are planning to split Goldenseal Pro into a much wider range of small business solutions. Below is a tentative grid of 20 future apps, with different features included. They range from free up to $1295 for The Works (single user). The bigger apps also have multi-user versions. Double-click to expand.
This is still a work in progress, and comments are appreciated. Most likely we will trim the list before the actual release date, to make choices less confusing.

Our contractor reports:
so far we have started integrating the Qt event system into the existing handlers. When you start the app, the file selection window is displayed using Qt and then the file
is loaded using Qt objects for reading and writing.
Meanwhile, we are working on general plans for our next generation of software.
- The bad news is, we probably will stop having printed manuals. They are a lot of work, and hard to keep up to date as the program changes.
- The good news is, we will start making instruction videos instead, for the areas where people need the most help. We can pretty much put our training classes online, so anyone can view them at any time.
- We’ll also keep expanding and improving the Answers button on our website, and we will rewrite the site so it works better on phones and small screens. There are a well over a thousand pages on the site, so it’s going to be a gradual process to rewrite it.
