    I believe it's the name of Pangolins new range of laser software that's still under development.

    Apparently there's some pretty good stuff coming - There's been a couple of hint's at what's in store, but I guess we'll all just have to be patient...

    I found this from Bill Brenner:

    Yes, BEYOND is the name of a software package we are working on.

    Let's just say that it will allow you to do new things in a new way, and that we have discovered a new way of controlling a laser beam. It is fully compatible with our existing QM2000 and FB3 hardware, but I don't want to say too much more about it right now.

    The whole purpose of the banner was to be a kind of "teaser". To get people thinking -- hey, what is this thing and what does it do. Well, I can see from your reaction that we are accomplishing this goal .

    From what I have read, Beyond is going to blow LivePRO out of the water, and then some

    Err.... Why is it sad?

    There's nothing that says you're going to get the new equivalent of LivePRO for free. On the other hand, if you've purchased LivePRO you'll more than likely get a free upgrade. One thing i've learned about Pangolin is that they have a very fair and clear upgrade path with their software, I can't see them deliberately upsetting those very customers who support them by upgrading their software to gain more features.

    I didn't say they were deliberately trying to upset customers.

    Maybe you'll understand what i mean when i make a comparison.

    When you buy Adobe Photoshop CS2 a month before CS3 is released, you won't get a free update to CS3 ...

    I think you guys are getting the wrong image here.
    I'm not against pangolin. I think that beyond will be even better than livepro. I just would be bummed when i had bought livepro and then two months later see beyond appeared that's all.
