I am really interested in this product and demo'd it successfully a few days ago and I came back today to buy it, only to find the demo site down. I just wanted to let you know that I want the product, but I want to be confident it works on a live site.

Yup, that question gets asked a lot, but in short.. updates are definitely included for the foreseeable future. This is at least during all of Joomla 1.5, we're investigating the new user system of Joomla 1.6, but can't really speak on the difficulty with that yet (and hence, whether that would be a separate release or not).
