Before buying license: need to know future of xnview classic vs xnview mp

Post by t3ster » Fri Sep 11, 2020 3:24 pm

I want to purchase a classic license but before I buy a license I need to know what the future will be for xnview and xnview MP.
I have used other viewers in the past until now and I am switching back to xnview classic and I want to buy a license so I can use xnview as a freelancer.

1. Will xnview classic be discontinued in the future and be replaced with xnview MP?
2. Or will xnview classic keep existing next to mp and xnview classic will be kept actively developed?
3. And if xnview will be discontinued in the future, will the buyers an xnview classic license be converted to an mp license?

A licence purchased from the download page for either program is valid for the use of both programs?

It is still the same perpetual licence, on desktop per computer, on terminal server per user?
