AmosPro 2.1 is slated to come first.  That is a bugfix release with a hard drive required and improved documentation framework.

AMOS Pro V2.10 will be released before too long (although I'll be out of action for a while in July).  As SamuraiCrow stated, it's a bug fix and much improved (and accurate!) documentation version.

To avoid the temptation of thrashing about adding bits here and there (enhancements) we've been pretty strict in making it bug-fix-only.  From what I've discovered about the internals of AMOS Pro, I'm glad we did.  It's a very complex beast and does some very cute things to get the speed.  Adding anything without understanding the existing architecture would be foolhardy.

So, V3.xx won't appear until after the fixes.  Expect it to mainly include tidied up versions of the more useful extensions and AGA support.
