What's new in this version:

Experimental, but game-changing AI:
In-house we are using AI all the time, every day. We believe, it is a major breakthrough in the programming industry. So the new version has integration with AI chat, but there are some notes:
- Technology is new, it will contain bugs
- AI is not perfect, it may produce wrong answers sometimes
- We rely on ChatGPT currently. Version 3.5 works well and is very fast. Version 4.0 works well, but sometimes is rather slow, becauseo of OpenAI API slowness.
- AI is a paid service, but we are including some free service credit out of our own pocket
- When you buy a license, you will get a lot of free credits included (for hundreds of requests) with your license key
