    When I bought Max 7, this was a gen license:

    A few months later, without prior notice Cycling74 converted it into this:

    Some of the post-release fixes with the first license:
    • Gen codebox: fixed command + click crash in unlocked patcher
    • codebox: Fixed autocompile
    ¿Do not use the versions subsequent to 7.2.5 and subsequent for not agreeing with that license change and therefore coexisting with the bugs, does not imply an implicit punishment to the user, by the company that decided to impose a surprise , arbitrary license change, surreptitiously in the middle of support updates a version?
    On the other hand it is possible that in the next version (8). Cycling74 publish this kind of things from the beginning to avoid misunderstandings?

    Thanks
