Availability of Storyline 2

We'd like to put Storyline on another PC, but our reseller says that only Storyline 3 and 360 are now available.

We can't have one PC running 3 as they'd not be able to work with the rest of us. We can't justify the cost of upgrading all PCs to 3 or 360.

I'd like to know what Articulate would recommend in this situation.

I'd also like to note that this would not be an issue were Articulate to publish product roadmaps. Had we known about the launch of Storyline 3 and subsequent unavailability of Storyline 2, we would have conducted our end-of-financial-year planning differently. As it stands, we are now 9 days into a new financial year with a budget that does not allow us to buy 6 new licenses, and a vendor that will not allow us to buy the one license that we can afford.

I just want my team to get on with creating eLearning products but we've had the rug pulled from under our feet and I'm now having to take time away from instructional design to deal with this disruption to operations.

It's frustrating, disruptive and I do not understand what benefit you gain from such secrecy. Please reconsider.
