Incredibly powerful program, incredibly difficult company to deal with. Licensing, unless they've changed it in the new version 5, is very arcane and cumbersome.

Max 5 is everything we have been waiting for. I wrote a comprehensive user review with pictures here: http://jnote.org/162 Highlights of Max 5 include jWeb, text buttons, presentation mode and improved graphics all around.

I agree that the licensing is a major hassle, involving challenge/response and waiting times. They have had to take into account student rebates, temporary 30-day accounts, and all other sorts of things that have boxed them into a corner. I wrote a review of Max 5 after playing with it for a few days. People are welcome to read the full review at http://jnote.org/162
