This would also be a good time to alleviate the expectation/frustration of feature filled/limited annual releases so those of us paying maintenance fees have a reasonable idea as to what improvements to expect. We could then hopefully move to updates as new features are completed.

Being locked to a yearly contract sounds absolutely unimaginable to me in 2021. Corona for example has a very nice flexible plan that lets you pay monthly - you can cancel anytime and that's it.

Take, for example, you purchase a new car, as an owner of that car do you really expect the manufacturer to lay out the development roadmap and features for their new models? No, you have purchased that car and possibly an extended warranty and service plan (subscription), you have what you have paid for. How is software any different from this?
