This was posted more than one week ago and I don't see any kind of feedback. Based on that, I'm assuming that dedicate time and resources to this fork (Chevereto-Free) is not needed, at least not at this time.

Chevereto-Free v1.2.0 is still on the roadmap but there's no release date. In the meanwhile I will keep releasing Chevereto V3 updates while I keep working on V4.

This version is exactly what I need (bulk importer). If it's not scheduled for a timely release I guess I have to go for the paid version. 🤷‍♂️
But since it's for my personal use I could wait if a release date is set.

Really I am looking forward to this release. Please do not close Chevereto-Free development.
I use it on my Word-Press website like images hostsing

Deutsche Version:
Da der erste Post von April 2019 ist gehe ich nun davon aus das die Entwicklung von Version 1.2 komplett eingestellt ist und es keinerlei Updates mehr geben wird.
Schade eigentlich, da ich mich (trotz das ich nichts weiter dazu geschrieben habe) doch schon sehr darauf gefreut habe.
Ich liebe es wenn die Scripte Aktuell gehalten werden und mit immer neuen bzw. verbesserten features ausgestattet werden.

Vielleicht komme ich irgendwann darauf zurĂĽck eine Kostenpflichtige Version zu bestellen.
Mal schauen. Genutzt wird es ausschlieĂźlich Privat ohne einnahmen.

Since the first post is from April 2019, I now assume that the development of version 1.2 is completely set and there will be no more updates.
It's a pity, because I (despite the fact that I did not write anything about it) were really looking forward to it.
I love it when the scripts are kept current and are always equipped with new or improved features.

Maybe someday I will come back to order a paid version.
Just take a look. It is used exclusively private without income.

Vielen Dank
Very Thanks

I have decided to put all my development efforts into V4 and as it is a completely different code, add updates to Chevereto Free is the same as work twice. This also applies to the paid edition, but there people pay to push this updates.

The problem here is that the Open Source in Chevereto Free just works for distribution rather than collaboration (which is very low) because the code is complicated.

This changes with V4 which will also unify both editions into just one software.

Not all people look into a forum.
It would be nice if it would be in the pay or happy variant the opportunity to send directly from the am over-rich its feedback to the developers.

This would give you more desire and criticism.
I myself am not really good in English, so I have always avoided the forum

In Deutsch:
So, ich habe mir eine Lizenz gekauft. đź‘Ť
Somit sollte das von meiner Seite her Feedback genug sein :)
Ich finde das Script klasse und bezahle hiermit auch gern :)

Really kind of you to do this Rodolfo.

Just a thought, have you thought about putting a "news" section in the free admin panel so you can push announcements/updates to free users?
