activeCollab giving up on free edition, open-source

Tags: 

The project management tool activeCollab, previously mentioned here, has just announced their pricing structure for the forthcoming v1.0 release. The key point you'll notice is that they're no longer going to have a free or open-source version available, instead they're pushing their paid releases while they "keep [the old version] 0.7.1 around." There will be two versions available, a "small biz" release for $199 that doesn't have the calendar, trouble tickets, time tracking or static pages, and a $399 version that has these. At this news I'm even more satisfied in my choice to move all my work to using Redmine.
