I would be happy to do this. I have abandoned
all my old projects in recent years due to family stresses* (I
am caring for my parents, both in their 80s), and if I were to
resume coding I would quite happily use a 64-bit version of
BB4W, regardless of compatibility with old versions.
I also feel (without any evidence to support
my intuition) that it might aid takeup of BB4W by new coders.
Incidentally, while I can't promise that I will be coding in any particular time-frame, I would be happy to pay for a new license in recognition of the amount of work involved in creating such a new product, and hope I will have opportunity to sit and kick some lazy old braincells back in to life!
* (This is one reason I am very quiet in this
group and elsewhere.)
