Dear Cadsoft!

As a 20+ year user, I honestly do not know, why I should pay you that
much money for that meager (regarding the features) update?

The only added value in this new version is, if you really need it, the
hierarchical schematic design. Having no need for an improved
auto-router, I don't see anything else justifying the price.

On the contrary I do see at lot of disadvantages:
First and foremost the new license system, that forces me do reduce the
number of installations. And don't say, it's because of the cracked
versions. As long as you keep the old system for freeware, it will be
cracked anyway.
Second the icons: Low to no contrast, blurry. You wasted money and time
to get them.
Third: For what good is the hierarchical schematic design, when you do
not implement a counterpart in the layout tool to copy the corresponding
layout sections?

Summing all that up, there is only one result: I'm out. As long as you
do not come up with some real improvements, I won't pay you any money
any more.
