Asked Corel again on their facebook page:
A week ago a supporter wrote in here about the AfterShot plugin page (which has been down for two weeks:
"As for the plugin site and the in-program update issue, thank you for the heads up! We will certainly look into what is happening to those!"
Well, what's happening?
And received this answer today:
We do not currently have any updates on the missing plugin site at this end so far; it is being looked into by members of our web team, and we will be posting with more information as it is found!
Adam, Corel Support
... with more information when the missing site i found?
But also today on same facebook page the same supporter wrote this in answer to the question whether Corel really stopped development of AfterShot Pro:
"Nope! AfterShot is still a supported product, and is still under development - is there a particular suggestion or feature you were looking to suggest? We would be happy to pass it along to the product team for you!"
As the naïve fool I am I asked this:
@Adam (Corel Support)
You wrote that "AfterShot is still a supported product, and is still under development" and that you would pass along suggestions to the development team.
Then please tell them this: A lot of plugin authors and a lot of users are finding alternatives to AfterShot, because the general opinion in the user forum (that would be the one hosted by Corel!) is that AfterShot is indeed dead and discontinued.
The reason for this solely due to lack of communication from Corel! Show us something!
I really don't know why I bother with this ... oh yes I forgot, that would be mainly due to the fact that the best ASP alternative under Linux is the Darktable-nightmare and that I cant figure out a way to get Lightroom running under WINE.
