    Great to hear you find it worthful, thanks!

    I have created such a software catalog now that there are always programs needing for updates. Somehow RNOPublisher is harder to get back into, maybe it feels a bit overwhelming to begin with compared to other programs, but I'll try... maybe after one or two other programs :)
