    When can we expect a public release?

    Well, currently Im quite busy with QUAD. Also, Ive made a few tests of QUAD engine as replacement for PIM compression. The results is not impressive, QUAD deals not so good with MM filters. In addition, the archive structure of PIM (some sort of solid mode) is very bad for QUAD compression - the compression is simply ruined. However, soon I must release a stable version (some software catalogs rejects the BETA releases) with faster QUAD decompression and slightly faster main compression.

    News:
    In my plans, PIM 1.50 must be the FINAL version of PIM archiver. The main feature of this version will be renewed QUAD decompressor (from QUAD v1.11) (faster).
    In addition, I think QUAD 1.11 is also will be some sort of final version.

    And that's the way the cookie crumbles...

    At least this means a large break in development (starting from year to forever). Its too heavy to develop such big program. But the main reason that I have no spare time and interest any more. The PIM archiver represents some kind of monument of my summer of 2006. Its CRAZY! I still cant beleive I write that. However, PIM compression is obsolete in terms of "what Ive done", thus QUAD is more progressive, but MM filters and file type detection make the right thing. I make QUAD open source to SHARE with people - data compression is meant to be share - i.e. Ill probably leave the data compression scene, but my ideas will survive! I think you understand that working for free, releasing many programs and versions day by day during a couple of years... Some authors appears and disappears, I swam in this pool a little bit longer than others... (Where is the kvark or Oscar Garcia, for example...)

    P.S.
    Just think, if RK and UHARC was open source...

    So, this is the end! You will be missed by many people!!!

    I wish you good luck for the future, and will say a final goodbye when the day comes.

    Its really sad to hear you say that. encode.su is an awesome place for people interested in data compression. I hope this wont change without your huge input and work!

    I can understand your decision. Data compression can be very time consuming and exhausting. Ive slowed down development of my compressor a lot in order to not lose interest.

    And maybe, youll have some new ideas and it gets you again. No matter how you decide, youve done a hell of a job encode!

    We hope that it is not true this that you say! PIM is a good product must improve the speed of compression and decompression! In any case good fortune and good job!

    I can understand, but I definitely hope you may continue developing and innovating in data compression field.
    As Christian said, sometime is time to slow down... or to find a different rithm to fit development in daily life schedule.
    Thumbs up and kudos for your work!
