Heads up on some GARS changes
Please be aware that when the shop re-opens and GARS 2.0 hits RC, there will be a price increase to £19.95 for new purchases.

Furthermore I will be migrating the core classes to ioncube and zend for the performance benefits and to protect the code as I'm tired of seeing it ripped ;)

Current core classes will stay as-is, but new releases will by encoded.

Thanks for your support.

will existing customers have to pay the difference?

and, silly quest..what is ion cube

no, if you are already licesnced then it doesnt apply howeve the annual renewal (if you want updates) will increase slightly too (though not much).

Ioncube and Zend are the two key source encoders out there. They essentailly encode and encrypt source files to prevent theft of scripts. THey also improve performance of the scripts though this is only subtle.

Will we be able to install this on our test site as well as our main site?

Bridges 04-23-2006 04:28 PM

Now I think about it, vbseo works the same way. I forgot if I am running zend or ion cube.

Ya, im setting stuff up now. Youll be able to run a localhost or your registered domain (at least that is the goal).

I imagine most of us do a manual install of AMP on our dev machines, and php is very easily configured to include the Zend module, the combined dev packages are even easier to activate the Zend module so I can't see a problem there anyway.

oops, just realised the obvious mistake.......:o :o

zend/ioncube I can handle, so not a big problem.

ps: will the upgrade be free for current customers?

Mirzone 04-23-2006 10:48 PM

I do think upping the yearly renewal is slightly out of order however I am willing to do it because of your top class service

The Geek 04-24-2006 07:17 AM

the annual access fee will only be around £10 and yes, upgrades are free within your 1 year update ;)
