Just like someone already said... update the emulator yourself! They can, of course, not press new CD's to send out every time a new version of WinUAE is released. A rather ridicilous comment, I have to add.

So? They have never claimed it to be anything else, either. I would not be surprised if future version could come to include the Dave Haynie version (haven't seen it, so I don't know what I am missing out on). Have you asked Cloanto if this is a possibility?

For you to go around CLAIMING that there are pirate versions of the games included... is a rather nasty thing to do. Give me one proof of that this would be the truth, and I would be surprised. Spreading such information like you just did could under certain circumnstances, at least here in Sweden, even be considered illegal (if untrue).

The ROM's? I am not sure that I understand what you are talking about here? Do you need to 'stuff around' keyfiles to make the different kickstarts to work?

Just like someone already said... there is no official 3.9 ROM... there is ONLY 3.1 ROM's that have been patched either with the Amiga ROM Update supplied with the 2 different update packs (BoingBags) released for, say, OS3.9 or home made patches of the 3.1 ROM... what I am trying to say here is that it is probably not more complicated than their license not allowing them to make an own patch based on the official 3.1 ROM and send it along together with the AmigaForever package.

AmigaForever is rather clearly not a product aimed directly at the Amiga community... rather people in general that wants to have a quick and easy way of running the Amiga on their PC's. What would be the point of using AmigaForever on an Amiga? Now, really? Other than possibly on an AmigaOne or Pegasos, which are the only Amiga related (or whatever) contenders that might actually have the POWER to emulate an Amiga500, for example... but how big a market do they offer?
