I've been using this component for years and always been very happy with it. Features are excellent and plugin capability is fantastic but I was a little disappointed to find out you now have to register to download effectively making it a commercial product. This must be a fairly recent change and I suppose I can understand the need to make some money to pay for the servers but I much prefer to donate to projects I like. Perhaps an old copy could still have been left on the forge but I see all files have been removed there too.
Anyway, besides that, as I've already said an excellent component and not a bad price for the yearly subscription so I would say it's still worth paying for. Combined with the VirtueMart plugin there's nothing better out there that I have found.
