Can you clarify what the policy will be when NT8 is released regarding simultaneous use of NT7 and NT8. I will want to continue to use NT7 for live trading while at the same time begin what will be for me probably a lengthy task of converting my custom scripts to NT8.
Will it be possible to use NT7 and NT8 at the same time without licensing issues?
On the same computer, no problem. If on separate computers, the best option for simultaneous use is to use a free simulation only license key. Feature wise, it's all the same just live trading is disabled. You can request this license by sending email to support.

I sure hope you stick to your end of April deadline. I really need a platform that supports millisecond ticks, and I am getting to the point where I can't wait much longer before I either make my own custom solution or switch to another platform. I greatly appreciate this firm timeline, but I really have been annoyed with hearing about NT 8 for 2 years! Perhaps next time you guys should make more smaller releases with things that are REALLY important to people (like sub-second resolutions!)
Can you elaborate on the process of joining the beta program? Will we get an email? Notice in NT on startup? Link on your homepage?
Why don't you just use NT7? It works just fine and has been available for a long time. You think NT8 is the answer to your prayers? That's funny. As soon as NT8 comes out, you (and a whole host of others) will be on pins and needles waiting for NT9. It's not the software, it's the trader. Would be fine with me if they just stuck with NT7 - it does everything a trading platform needs to do for a trader to have a realistic chance at being profitable.

you're perfectly right and I cannot agree more but, if I may, to me it's just frustration from promises being broken, not being transparent with customers and general treatment like I'm a doofus* etc. (things I listed in my previous post). I do wish however some enhancements being implemented when it comes to ninja script, drawing mechanism (and driver), API, optimisation, market scanner, handling historical data better, volume (profile etc) etc - some of those cannot be fixed in NT7 hence they probably rewrote the thing.
All of those are more moans to be honest, I really like NT7 and fully agree they will not make anybody profitable because they have a shiny new toy.
*I only let the market treat me this way
All the best
Consistency over time
