This morning a friend forwarded me this email from Mockingbird.
Dear Mockingbird customers,
Mockingbird’s taking flight
We’re excited to announce that Mockingbird will launch on August 15, 2010 — with multi-user collaboration!
Details on the paid plans:
Active Projects Users Price/month Personal 2 Unlimited $9 Team 10 Unlimited $20 Pro 25 Unlimited $40 Unlimited Unlimited Unlimited $85
There will also be a free account available that allows 1 project with 3 pages.
You can archive finished projects, which won’t count toward your active project limit. You won’t be charged for months during which you have no projects active.
What you need to do
Projects made with beta accounts will be automatically archived and will not be accessible after August 15, 2010. Customers who choose to upgrade to a paid plan may re-activate beta projects, but free accounts will not be able to access old beta projects, so please make sure to log into your Mockingbird account to export PNG or PDF versions of any projects you need.
Your feedback has made Mockingbird better, and we’d like to thank you by offering a coupon for 25% off the first three months of any paid plan. Keep your eye out on your inbox for the coupon code when Mockingbird launches.
Questions or comments?
If you’ve got questions about the transition out of beta or want to get in touch with us for any other reason, we’d love to hear from you. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for all your support, and we look forward to continuing to help you make great wireframes.

In a nut shell they are saying thanks for testing, all projects are now archived so export them. If you want your old projects back, pay us. Wow.. Awesome. Thanks!
I jumped on Twitter, first off I never use Twitter but I figured it might be worth a try.
Wow. Didn’t expect that.
I guess I just have to tweet a complaint to get my projects extended, so everyone else that is in the same boat as me has to ask? What’s the harm in letting your free beta testers to keep their current projects? Oh… right.. Mockingbird doesn’t want casual users that could see the benefits of a quick HTML5 mockup tool so they won’t eventually become paid users and tell friends and colleagues alike how great of an application it is.
My project is exported.. who knows what they will do in the future but don’t consider your projects safe with this startup.
