Ver 1.0 Released And Upcoming Price Increase

Also, heads-up if you have been on the fence about buying Lightburn, it will be increasing 50% from $80 to $120 on the 16th. Get it at $80 while you still can. It is the best $80 you can spend on a Ruida machine (I have no affiliation with the company). I can't hold it against them for raising the price. Even at $120 it will still be a worthy investment.

I have been working with and on graphics and CNC programs for almost 30 years and this program rocks and is well worth either price. If this was a program marketed to companies it would be priced 30 times it's current price and people would be glad to pay it. A good midlevel CNC program is over $2k and a good graphics program can be over $5k... and they are worth it. There is a huge amount of money to be made with these tools if you are willing to devote some time and energy. So sez grampa.
