What kind of update does Promash need?  It does everything I need it to do seamlessly.

It would be nice if it was Mac OS compatible for those of us that would like to use it without running an emulator.

Get BeerAlchemy...pretty much as good as ProMash, but with a better organized and much more intuitive  GUI than just about any brew software. 
And it's Mac native software (Mac only, actually)

Oooold thread I know, but I still use Promash, runs on Win 98, XP and 7 okay.  I do not mind manually updating the databases as they as customized to use the ingredients my wife and I use to brew.

Sometimes use SUDS, too.

I used Suds a long time ago, replaced with Promash and see no reason to change.

You should update your database even with Beersmith/BeerAlchemy/BeerBananas/etc.  Hops AA% vary by year and farm.  Grain color and extract vary not only by brand but per lot... you can check countrymalt.com to get an actual lot analysis for you sack. 

Brewing software isn't magic and too many people don't understand what it's doing for their system/process/ingredients and end up way off the mark.
Please do not reply if your an evil alien!

+1. Shiny bells and whistles often make people think it is "better".
