Today, few days after the Pro release, I've released the free version too (v1.9.3).
Other than standard bugfixes, there is a new FreeBSD 7 build and an important 12 times speed-up when loading a document having big attachments or images.
Free version of Notecase is feature-wise complete, so expect less frequent releases in the future.
My plans for the next period of time is to improve Notecase Pro, adding support for task management, and to improve tagging support.
There were some people who wrote to me about Atol file manager. Unfortunately, this project is more or less dead, there is practically no demand for it.
