Hello Marek,

I know that certificates are expensive, but it worth its price.

 but almost all plugins are free, why should developers pay for certificate
 then?

I concur. Development of freeware plugins faces imminent danger if developers
have to pay. And there is more. Even if a developer choses to pay from his
pocket, his plugin may uses a third party dll that is not signed! You see the
problems? I don't think that use of signed only plugins worth it.

But this problem could be solved easily. You could implement something like
the signed windows driver, the user can select wether he trusts an unsigned
plugin or not. Why don't follow this approach ?

this sounds OK for me, I am asking early because we can discuss it here. I
am not against certificates, but development of some useful plugins was
cancelled already and I do not see aby reason they should open development
to implement certificates and pay for them, if they provided them free of
charge. I see it from development's POV, even I am not developer ;-)

Hello Marek,

 We don't know, but we plan to implement this in November 2007.
 
 thanks for info, I have sent this to Grisoft (AVG), Alwil (AVAST) and
 Andrew Perewodchik (MyMacros) already.

Could you please remind Andrew Perewodchik about MyGate also? MyGate is
not a plugin as such, just the MyGateRunner if used to start/stop MyGate
when TB is started/stopped.

Thanks.

Thanks Marek :) I agree MyMacros is a great plugin. I've been using both
MyMacros and MyGate for years.
