PipDefender alternatives

I  love PipDefender! Using it, I can do a virtual trailing stop on pairs with very high stop level.
There isn’t another trade manager as versatile as it. And it’s free!
The problem is that from the end of June is no more usable: the public version is expired, links to the SteadyOnFX website, but you can’t download a new one.
Awaiting that Daltanious (the coder) has some free time to release the new version, I need an alternative! Which? I searched for hours, but there isn’t an equivalent product…
This is what I found:

CompuForex Trade Manager

Pros:
  • Free
  • Trailing stop
  • Can manage losses in a cool way
  • Many features
  • “Greedy mode”, after a set hours, it moves gradually the stop loss to the current price, to maximize the profit if a retracement happens
  • Since the code it’s totally contained in the EX4 file, I there are not those deactivation problems when a communication error happens between the server app and MetaTrader
  • English language

Cons:

  • No hidden/virtual stop loss (stealth)
  • I didn’t manage to make it work very well: every trade was going breakeven

TrailEvo 2

Pros:
  • Free
  • Trailing stop
  • Many features
  • Since the code it’s totally contained in the EX4 file, I there are not those deactivation problems when a communication error happens between the server app and MetaTrader

Cons:

  • No hidden/virtual stop loss (stealth)
  • Only in Italian language
  • You have to register to that italian forum to download i

Stealth EA

Pros:
  • Trailing stop
  • Stealth management 
  • Many features
  • Since the code it’s totally contained in the EX4 file, I there are not those deactivation problems when a communication error happens between the server app and MetaTrader
  • English language

Svantaggi:

  • You can only set virtual stop losses
  • It costs 120 euro

To compare it, I insert pro and cons of PipDefender:

Pros:
  • Free
  • Trailing stop, stealth or normal
  • Many features
  • “Greedy mode”, after a set hours, it moves gradually the stop loss
    to the current price, to maximize the profit if a retracement happens
  • English language

Cons:

    • Expires every now and then (more than 60 days are passed from the expiration day, but we don’t know when the new version will be released – you shouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth, but it’s still annoying)
    • The main code is contained in a server application that communicates with the MetaTrader – it happened to me sometimes that the server application exited for some error, leaving my trades unmanaged.
