End of Life/Support for Chronoforms?

I'm catching up here and I see that Max is off the grid for the past few months. This is obviously a big concern in terms of having a website strategy that uses CF and CC.
I think the potential big problem areas with Max's continued absence are as follows:
1. The domain expires in August 2022. After that, what happens?
2. The Validation scripts have caused issues up and down in the past. If that goes down it is Max's job to fix it. But if he is unavailable and it goes down today, then what happens? No more licence validations?
I bought a single-site license yesterday and the page crashed when I tried to activate our URL. I reloaded the page and tried again but now the site says the licenses are used up for that purchase! But, of course, I didn't get the validation code for the domain. All things considered, I paid for a license but I can't get that license. In the past Max has resolved issues like that for me with prompt email support.

I emailed the CF Support Gmail address and tried calling the support number on the 2Checkout receipt... no response to the email (although it didn't bounce) and the phone number is unavailable or out of service.

Does anyone have a migration strategy or contingency plan for life beyond Chronoforms?

Do someone know if Max will come back?
Or Chronoform will not available for Joomla 4

Hi there,
I think Max should give his code a free CC license now, if he can't go on developing it (which I can totally understand and accept).
So we users could start a crowdfunding campaign and raise some money for a professional migration to J4.

Hi Tom,
Max is still around though not very active. He did reply to a Contact form request yesterday.
If you'd like to buy me a coffee or two, thank you very much

@mapme, you should use your master key after you validate your domain!
@Tom, there is a plan to have a J4 Chronoforms, I'm just trying to find enough time to do that, the problem I'm having is that there are some people who do NOT want this to happen.

Good to hear from you again Max. Hope you are well.
Is there any plans to migrate ChronoConnectivity to Joomla4 as well?
Edit: We noticed that Chronoforms7 has Connectivity App built into it now. Is the plan to merge both Chronoforms and Chronoconnectivity into one extension?

@admin Hi Max, good to hear from you. We have been worried about you and also a bit about the future of CF. I hope you are doing fine and will find the energy and time to push forward with CF. If I were a developer I would say: 'When you need an hand....' But unfortunately that would probably not help you out very much ;-)
I am intrigued by your comment: 'there are some people who do NOT want this to happen'. Can you elaborate on that?

Hi Max,
I hope that everything went well. I have tried other form applications but nothing better then CF.

I'm not sure what the error means but a fresh install on J4 here works fine without errors!

Hi Max!
I'm not able to upgrade from Joomla V3 to V4, but it's ok with a fresh install.
Then I've imported my CFv7 forms and everything it's ok, but when I try to create an ACL profile, when I save with "Apply" I received this error:
"HY000, 1366, Incorrect integer value: '' for column 'id' at row 1"
It's a CF or a Joomla problem?
There is a backup-restore function for ACL profiles?
Thank you.

May be you have to clear cache in CF7. Try this...

Hi Colnem,
no, it isn't a cache problem.
I've "solved" copying the ACL profiles from the old db table "chronog3_acl_profiles" to the new. Now I'm able to modify the existing profile but not to create new one. I must create it directly into the db table.
