Support expired? No download in customer area?
If you purchased CVS Suite 2008 with a free upgrade to CVS Suite 2009 - that upgrade was in the customer downloads area from July 2010 onwards.
All customers can download the software they purchased for 120 days from the purchase date only. To get the latest updates, you need to purchase annual software maintenance and support (5 levels to choose from).

Delays in Release Cycle
During 2010 we had not been able to provide releases and fixes by our target dates. We understood the problem, and determined that it was solvable. In July 2010 we began a major restructure to centralise our development and get our release schedules on track.
Unfortunately due to technical issues in our range of products our development team struggled to balance the priorities. With the recent changes to our team and the release of CVS Suite 2009R2 we believe our release schedule is back on track.
We announce today the planned release and support schedule for CVS Suite.
