Is there any chance to get a up to date manual for Retrospect v9? All I get in the v9 download is a v8 manual and a small addendum.

 

So, e.g. a very basic task like the engine installation procedure is not documented properly. Not in the old manual nor in the addendum.

I really cannot understand how v9 can be released with a v8 manual only. That is utterly confusing and not very helpful. It feels like the

release has been rushed like hell.

 

So, is there anywhere a download link to a correct, up to date manual for this $900+ software?

Habakuk,

 

Rushed, really???? It took 2.5 years to fix all the bugs. Maybe the rush was to add features. Those feature additions arguably make it a marginally full version upgrade. I believe that a manual will be the last thing on the To-Do list. It took about the same time to write the Retro 8 manual (yes, some of the folks on this list remember it all too well, apologies that I don't have the exact dates).

I don't have exact dates, either, but I got my trial version of Retro 8 on 22 Aug 2009, and the version of the Retrospect manual I have has a copyright date 2010, and the PDF metadata in the manual has a creation date of 15 Apr 2010, and a modification date of 2 Jul 2010.

So, for an $900 upgrade price, I get software without any documentation. Great. Keep up the good work.

You mean there is NO documentation in the "Help" menu?

You mean you hope they fixed all the bugs (let alone introduced new features with potentially a whole bunch of new bugs).
