I am extremely concerned about the total lack of communication from the Primate Lab support staff. If there are doubts about the viability of continuing the support of VoodooPad, I would consider it a matter of common courtesy to keep your user base up to date.
I am a long time user of VoodooPad but am desperately concerned that it, and it's users, have been abandoned. Or at the very least, left in the dark for far too long. Give us some idea of what the situation is so we can plan our software strategy for the future.

I apologize for the lack of updates regarding VoodooPad. We're short-staffed at the moment due to COVID (our dedicated VoodooPad developer quit and we haven't been able to hire a replacement) so VoodooPad development is slow at the moment as the other developers here are only able to work on it in their "spare" time.
I'm hoping things will get back to normal once the pandemic is over.
I'm really sorry to say this, but I would not put my hope in Primate Labs pulling this off. Version 6 has been promised since 2018 and still isn't here. It has never been a priority and developers working on it in their "spare" time demonstrates this.
There are now many apps that do what once only Voodoopad could do. Voodoopad has been left in the dust. Roam research, Notion, Craft and Obsidian are all an easy replacement of Voodoopad and more. Obsidian being free if you don't need sync. I've moved everything into Obsidian and don't miss Voodoopad at all. Obsidian has been developed from scratch in just over a year including an ios app. Primate Labs have not produced a single version upgrade since they acquired it in 2017.
