Great to have all the drag and drop functionality working normally on MacOSX.

The whole GUI seems a little more snappy than before ?

Great work Juan and nice to know the licensing is more secure against the mindless idiots who hacked it last time.

I downloaded and installed 1.8.6.  I requested new license activation codes.  It replied that it was sending an email.  After 20-30 minutes I do not find an email in my inbox or spam.  A second request for activation codes responded there was already a request and to try again later.  How long should I expect it to take to get the activation email?

The email with the link to the license reactivation took 40 minutes.  Still waiting on the email with the new activation codes.  Apparently, the server is still slow due to heavy traffic.

Not at all. Despite the fact that we still have lots of concurrent download operations ongoing, right now we have a memory consumption below 32% and a CPU load below 3%, so the server is perfectly operational. Please check that your email provider is not blocking our notification emails.

Juan, Congratulations! Thanks so much for your nice 'thank you.' Also, for the lovely tribute to Sander. I posted it on his 'Remembering Sander Pool' Facebook page, so that his family would be sure to see it.  Hoping now, that you'll get some well-deserved rest Juan. Thanks for all you do. It was a privilege to assist on the testing team. 
Best always, Warren

Juan, thanks so much for all your hard work, and this new version. I'm really looking forward to the new astrometry integration, and will give it a good workout.

I have gone back to the earlier version.
I have tried several times to install the new version - W10 machine- (never had any problems before). I receive the new activation code in my e-mail but it fails to work when I use it with my User Ident.

Thank you, Sean.

With the integration of astrometry, ephemerides, etc. my intention is to extend PixInsight to cover more areas of astronomy beyond astrophotography. I am sure this will benefit all of us.

Well, you're a laugh a minute, but you know what it is, at least conceptually, so make sure you get some! Do I sound like your mother? :>)

Nice!

I was starting to think that development for pixinsight faded away, good to see that it is still being kept up to date. :)

Uninstalled and installed the new version on win7 64bit (I got the activation codes immediately)

Flawless download and installation on my iMac. Done in 30 minutes.

Thank you so much for the work you all do.

Hi Juan

Thanks for the new release but having an appearance problem new windows and sidebars are white  and can't see symbols. Workspace wallpaper on Mac Book Pro does not extend full window and drag and drop problems with sub frame selector also opens 2 windows at same time . Please review and let me know if I am doing something wrong.
