smartFTP FREE agian?

Smart FTP is by far the best FTP program ive used and i have had experience using it for about 2 years until my computer became contaminated with a virus.
I Had the program when it used to be free, I Know now and knew then that smart FTP was probily to good to be true. Now smart ftp charges for their program wich they reserve every right to do, but i was wondering if it would ever be free agian?

There are no plans to offer it for free at this time. Sorry.
