I think that having the original PE was a bonus – although it was far outdated.  I downloaded the trial and ended up buying it as the trial would have ended before I would have been skilled enough to use any other features.  I am still learning, but I am glad I did buy it.

And, I still have your request on my desktop - for a copy of the 'original' PixInsight LE video tutorials. Although, I really can't see any advantage in using them now. Perhaps we should just agree that it IS pointless me trying to figure out how to send several hundred Mb of 'historic' data over the 'Net !!

Niall at the time i would have loved them, probably in hindsight starting from the original can explain why and where things have gone in the programme.  I still appreciated the fact that you considered the request ;)

- PixInsight LE is a completely obsolete application.
This is not problem. PixInsight LE is working without problem, we don't need a support for it.

- For a long time, PixInsight LE has been counterproductive to the aspirations of the PixInsight project. PixInsight LE is very often seen as a tool which is only valid to solve a very specific problem (gradient removal with the DynamicBackgroundExtraction tool, a.k.a. DBE), and nearly nothing more.
True, but all users know, that this is LE - limited edition. Standard edition is providing more function... This is clear for all.

Based on these considerations, from now on the old PixInsight LE application will no longer be available for download from our servers.

As for a new limited edition of PixInsight, we certainly have some projects in mind, but still nothing decided, and absolutely no time line available. The next PixInsight LE will not be a free product...
What is with old version? My friend ask me, if he need to uninstall it?

I don't think Juan is suggesting anyone un-intall PI-LE. It would be a waste of time to ask anyway because no one would comply :)
Best,

Thank you. Old version of PixInsight LE is all the time free. Right?

Yes, it is free. Just it will not be on PixInsight's server anymore. And, to be true, saying that it is a limited edition is not close to reality. It was, when first released. The Standard edition shared the same interface, and it just included more processes. Right now, the PixInsight application has little of this first version... the idea behind the interface, but the code is all new, way too improved and refined, and there many things that we had not dreamed of at that time (image containers, history of the images, installable modules... uffff.... almost and end-less list). This is why LE is obsolete. It does not reflect what is happening right now with the main application.
