What's going on with Objective Development and LIttle Snitch?

They've offered 50% off Little Snitch for the last few years for Black Friday. Nothing at all this year. Is something wrong at the company that might indicate further development is stopping?

    Usually companies offer discounts when sales are down. Due to the changes in Big Sur that will at some point prevent Little Snitch 4 working, people will need to move to version 5. Offering a sale would just lose them revenue when there's already an upgrade incentive. Since version 5 is fully compatible with Big Sur, there's no reason for them to stop development. The fact they made an updated version for Big Sur suggests the opposite. It would be better for their business to skip offering sales until after all Macs have transitioned to Apple Silicon because they will get the full upgrade price from all current users.

    Doesn't really make sense. If you Google, you can find Black Friday discounts on Little Snitch from 2019 all the way back to at least 2015. Sales couldn't have been down every year.
