tear-off viewport seems to be nice and useful feature, but upgrading just for this makes no sense at all, at least financially.

Would like to give a shout out to the people still using 2013.  I bought a legit copy several years back.  Please keep corona compatible with 2013 :)  even if its unofficial.

Hi, sorry, this is not possible. There are technical obstacles that slow down development for us.

  Hello,

I'm 2016 user so technically it's not my problem at the moment, but sooner or later it will be. Could you please write something more? What exactly do you mean by "technical obstacles"? Is it 3dsmax licensing related problem or something else?

TH

Will the older 2013 compatible versions still be available to use via subscription?

Yes, we do not have licenses for 3ds Max 2013 so it is impossible to test new Corona versions there, provide support, etc. On the code side there are differences that we have to deal with, which is again hard when we cannot test things properly.

But 3ds Max 2016 is being used by a lot of users and it remains supported, so do not worry.

I wrote about it months ago and I'll write it again. It is possible to buy "second hand" 3dsmax 2011/2012/2013...etc from their original users and make license transfer via autodesk customer service (it's legit, we are not in north america). Also you can ask/hire users for testing? I'm sure lot of them would test corona for free gladly, but it's just my personal opinion.
