Version 4.9 Updates
We released Goldenseal 4.9 on July 11, 2014, and a minor version 4.92 update on August 21, 2014. More info here.
We just launched a new blog, where we can present breaking news and discussions. Users can sign up for a free account and then post comments (moderated). The blog replaces our former user bulletin board, which bit the dust, unfortunately, when our local ISP stopped providing hosting services. We will see how much trouble we have with spammers, and may need to adjust its details.
As of May 1, 2012, we have moved our office to 119 S. Cayuga St. #304, Ithaca NY 14850.
Owners of MacNail and BidMagic who haven't yet upgraded to Goldenseal can save $50 for a purchase of the basic version, or $100 for the full version. Goldenseal has all of the features of our older software, with many improvements. You can easily import most of your old estimating and accounting data into Goldenseal. To order, contact us.
