What happened to 1st Page 2000?

Were the developers all murdered or something?

Anybody is Down Under know the low down?

http://www.evrsoft.com (the First page home) is still on-line, so I don't get the question.

On the other hand, if you click on their "Products" link, the only product listed is First page 2000, which is free.  Doesn't sound like a solid business model to me.  So, maybe they closed up shop and someone's footing the bill to keep the web site active.

BTW, I still use First Page for simple web pages.  It's not a bad editor, but it does lock up occasionally.

Nick,
it's the version from 2 years ago.

If it's of any use I made a note in January 2002 that the Evrsoft forums had gone from buzzing about the soon expected new release to being closed down in the space of about a week.
The front page release date also changed from October 2001 (I think) to TBA and has remained that way ever since.
The site also started displaying banners around that time so I wonder whether they were trading on the popularity of the software at the time to get some income via click throughs.
