Andy, the developer of Make The Cut, moved on to a regular job to support his family. He has not made it available for others to continue development of the products, for whatever reason. Andy is still supporting his products as he is still paying for the server space where the Gallery Files are stored, as well as the site for the Forum, and the webinar videos.
Andy participated in a number of the Webinars. The Webinars were run by volunteers in the format of Q and A. Bryan, a volunteer, took care of recording the webinars. A number of volunteers helped to answer the webinar questions with pertinent demonstrations, and a few others worked on providing webinar summaries, and created the topical spreadsheets. I extracted my webinar demos using the latest version of MTC, and posted them on YouTube to make specific topics available there.
During those webinars, all topics were covered multiple times in a variety of ways. Those who regularly attended the webinars learned how to effectively use Make The Cut and Popup Card Studio to create and edit cutting files and to master use of the software features. In doing so, the skills learned can readily be applied, even now, to other vector software.

What happened to the developer?
Seems like the developer could make the source code for the system available as open source if they no longer want to support it.
And, was the developer the same person who did all the YouTube/Vimeo videos?

Actually, there is still lots of support for Make The Cut, although not from the developer. This group supports Make The Cut, the Make the Cut Forum is still available, There are Facebook groups that support it, and hundreds of Webinar Videos are available on Vimeo along with a searchable database to help you find the webinar topics that cover your questions. I have many YouTube videos covering Make The Cut, and this group has over a thousand pages of step-by-step, illustrated, graded, printable tutorials to help you learn to use Make The Cut.
You can still download the free trial version to give it a try.
The main things that we are having difficulty with right now are recovering lost registration keys and about half of the software Gallery is not working. Newer cutters are not supported. However, if you have your registration key, Make The Cut is still very competitive software with advanced editing features that other software does not have. It allows you to import many file types, and export SVG files for use in other software.
If you ever purchased Make The Cut, and have saved your registration key in a safe place, you can download the latest version for free, and enjoy all of its great features. You can also use Make The Cut 4.1.0 to cut to your older Cricut Legacy machines.
