Is HP planning on getting V5 out to more resellers? Both resellers in Australia do not list V5 as a product that they can supply, the software by itself is not available either.
Also is the software still being developed? Things seem to have gotten very quiet since HP took control. It isnt really worth investing in this if software development is non-existant and community support dries up.
Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

Yes there definitely seems to be a lack of interest on the part of HP with regard to V5.
I tried to buy the HP version but after a lot of promises and nearly 2 months after paying for it, I was sent the old David 5 version on a usb stick.
I suspect HP probably want to push their Sprout G2 scanner system instead and may have bought out David in order to minimize competition and eventually stop supporting the David/HP 3d scanner once V5 elapses.
I challenge HP to prove me wrong by being more communicative with those who own David / HP 3d scan software and tell us what their intentions are for the future of it.
Probably best to wait few months to see what develops.

Thanks for your reply.
I knew about being able to upgrade DAVID 5 to HP 5, and have already done so, but the other concerns all legal owners of the Software have about the lack of information on development and improvement of HP3d scanner V 5 in the future still remains.
When is the next V5 update coming out?
Why are You the only one providing technical Support?
Will there be any improvements in the feature to use 2 cameras?
As I said earlier, let's hear some feed back from the powers that be at HP.

Support does not have a lot information about research and development. I can just say that Sprout and DAVID Scanner are made for the different market segment, so Sprout does not exclude DAVID.
