    Talking Tiny Soft Sold Everything to KERIO!

    Um.......... Tinysoftware had sold everthing to Kerio, what's up with that. Winroute Pro had been sold to Kerio, and they announced that they did this to focus of Personal firewalls, but this last e-mail just showed me/proved to me that Tinysoft Had sold everything to Kerio.



    E-mail

    I don't have anything to do with next version of TinyPF. Latest version I
    created for Tiny is TPF 2.0.15a, next version is Kerio personal Firewall
    2.1.0beta2

    > Hi! Now, I know that Tinysoftware has sold their Winroute Pro line
    products to Kerio. Also, you had mentioned that TinySoft will launch TPF
    2.1 this week, and now you're talking about beta 3. This get me wondering,
    are you talking about the Personal Firewall by Kero (version 2.1 beta 2/3)
    or is the TinyPF version 2.1 beta still under testing period and will not be
    released until final version?

    Sweet so they made thier money off the product and then sell it out from underneath their customers. Nice. Typical, though. I wonder how well the Air Force is going to take this.
    hehehehe... Good post. Very informative.

    Interesting ... Yes... Very Interesting .... good to know that the product has changed hands... we'll have to see if they maintain it or what changes they make to it....is it just a name change to "Kerio Personal Firewall"or is it actually going to be a revamp of the application or is it a whole different product alltogether????


    Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

    Same technology, different company.
