31/Mar/2012 - Decifra is now a free software
Hoping to count with the comprehension of those who paid for our software, we have decided to make Decifra a free software (keeping the right of using it to display discrete messages from eventual sponsors). With this modification, we intend to preserve our clients from any future problem with passwords, so they can use our programa indefinitely. Moreover, the free version avoid the permission problems introduced by Windows Vista and Seven, which we suspect may have caused some disappointment in some of our users, as Windows asks special authorization every time Decifra is invoked (of course, nothing would really happen, but granting such authorization could be seen as risky by many clients). Finally, we also expect a significant expansion in the number of Decifra users, so all of our users will be favoured by an increasing opportunity of file interchange. For all these reasons, we ask you to tell all your friends about this.
07/Nov/2005 - New revision.
With the new revision 2.02, Windows updates and other minor modifications in your system will not invalidate your unlocking password. So, the inconvenience of having your copy unavailable without any aparent reason will be avoided (of course, all major modifications will continue to affect the computer code, but this shall not surprise anyone and, in these cases, our users must be prepared to simply require a new password). Anyway, REPLACING YOUR VERSION RIGHT NOW IS NOT NECESSARY. To speed up the process, the updating file (Update_Decifra2.exe) may be immediately obtained (from our page "Download"), but it shall only be executed when the password for version 2.01 become invalid (the program will return to the "demonstration condition"). Once installed, version 2.02 shall be used to identify the new computer code (which will have the usual 8 digits, but, now, always starting with the prefix 22). With this code, please require your new password, either through our page "Your Record" or by an e-mail. This substitution is absolutely free of charge, even for those who still have version 1.xx (in this case, even if operative, please upgrade your version immediately).
November 16, 2002
Version 2.0 (in English) officially launched today.
1. Documents will now count with three new basic elements, with
corresponding individual fonts, for visually identifying things like
Refrain, Chorus, and Comments. Also, the old elements
Title and Author can appear anywhere (and more than once)
in the document body, thereby creating the necessary conditions for
working with multiple songs
in a single document;
2. The functions Print Preview and Page Setup are joined in the same window, with incredible functionality, not easily found in any kind of software, even in professional text editors. Extremely reliable, this function also allows Decifra to make the best possible use of the paper printable area.
The overall result is a quite professional software, now exhibiting an increased advantage over its closest competitors (our first version is already rated as "superior", as mentioned in Opinions).October/2002 - Free upgrade for clients outside Brazil.
- International references.
We are now included into the most prestigious sites for software download in the Web and, specially, into those dedicated to music and musicians, like Harmony Central and Shareware Music Machine. Most important, in every published comparison, our ratings are consistently superior to the rest of our direct competitors. Furthermore, and fortunately, this is recognized not only by first-time users and registered clients (Download.com), but also by independent editors (StarMedia Software).
