Stefano just let me know that Simprit, the creators of GridMagic and Minisafe, have released a new version of GridMagic that is free for non-commercial personal and educational use. The new version has many of the key features of the full version with a few limitations shown in the table below. This is a great solution for personal users who need to be able to edit and access Excel files on the go. Check out the new free version at this link.
You can see a summary comparison at this link or a detailed comparison of the versions at this link. It seems like Simprit is trying to create a free software community on their dedicated free software portal. So far GridMagic seems to be the big free release but hopefully they will have more coming.
