Sandboxie is now free software

Since Sandboxie has been discussed a fair amount in this forum, thought this might be worth noting here - ... en-source/
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

I've mostly* used their free version.

A number of years back, someone posted a key in their forums, with the post made out to be that it was legit, & from Sandboxie.
Turns out it was not.
Once I realized that, I reported it to Sandboxie. Never heard from them.
But the post, key, shortly disappeared.

Last version I put in was 5.28.
There was a more recent, 5.30, but with Sopho's "takeover" of Sandboxie, I had no trust of (Sophos).
Their (Sophos) "forums" were/are a total joke.
No way to purchase licenses.
No way to take care of existing customer license or other issues.
No meaningful communications from (Sophos).
No meaningful forums.

(I've not looked there, yet, will at some point. Will probably put in whatever this "free" version is, at some point. No big deal to me, only difference would be a few second nag on startup. [Hell, FF Quantum gives me a "free" 5.second delay on startup & Mozilla considers it a "feature" not even worthy of fixing.])

Wonder if they'll have a free key for the latest XP version too?
