QlikSense Desktop (free) discontinues in June 2020

Today I read that QlikSense desktop will no longer available for download and use (as well as existing installations) from June 2020. 

Rumour or fact ?

Why do this ? Besides profiteering ? Surely there are other ways to encourage early adopters ? Forcing people to Qlik SaaS offering is not a great option as it does not support much in the way of extensions and of course locks out 3rd party extension provides such as VizLib which I use when prototyping before migrating to a server.

Is anybody in contact with Qlik for an answer on this?

It seems weird not to know the official plan moving forward. Was this topic addressed in the Qlik World event?

30th July 2020 and still no QS Desktop roadmap unless I missed i, apart from "QS Desktop no longer free"

So much for all the wooly fluffy stuff, marketing hypebole,  "democratisation of data......." blah blah blah........

QV11 certified but it looks like it's time to rollover to Power BI or Tableau if I want to commoditise

a QS app I developed that identifies Futures (and yield) that are moved by events like Economic News etc.

Shame really.

Dear Sir

Do you mean if Qlik charge money for QS Desktop software , you like to invest ? Because all you data already in Qlik View it is ? As I assume that you are like many people here don’t wish to paid for the monthly subscription . I Just want to understand your concern.
