With no improvements. Period.

BTW, you are not "grandfathered". You have paid for services until November 2019.

In his email, Aaron says: "These plan changes will not affect your current pricing schedule throughout the duration of your current subscription; you are grandfathered into your current plan until your next renewal date."

As aleding points out:
The new folks are simply honoring the existing contracts already in place and which pricing expires at the end of the existing term. That's not grandfathering - as I said that's called honoring a contract. To not do so would be a breach and possibly lead to litigation.

The Wikipedia article on Grandfather clause offers a good definition:
A grandfather clause (or grandfather policy) is a provision in which an old rule continues to apply to some existing situations while a new rule will apply to all future cases. Those exempt from the new rule are said to have grandfather rights or acquired rights, or to have been grandfathered in.

But with new owners that don't have a lot of business sense - this does not look like a viable product in the long term.
...
Hope they are better programmers than business strategists.
They are not programmers. They bought a business and they expect a sufficient return on their investment.

It remains to be seen how successful their strategy will be.

We decided to share this because historically, it was focused investment in Tasks that made Toodledo valuable to you, and that investment had waned over time. No more. We are getting back to the core of what makes Toodledo great and refocusing our efforts around task management.
This implies that the non-Task components of Toodledo (Outlines, Lists, Habits and maybe even Notes) will be discontinued.

Take a look at the current features for each subscription level and compare it with the recently-announced changes. No mention of Outlines, Lists and Habits in the new subscriptions.

Edited to add:
I see that AA expressed similar concerns in this post: https://www.toodledo.com/forums/1/25931/-117315/read.html#jump

The lack of updates, the poor iOS apps and the empty promises in these forums were bad enough but the dramatic price increase is the final nail.
Along with the almost complete lack of support in the forums.
The classy thing to do would be to release the "great new features" and then talk about price increases but the new owners might have become impatient and started grabbing before giving.
I agree.

Sam, the owner who said “I'll be super active in this forum, answering as many questions as possible” has disappeared. This is what he said when he announced the proposed changes to pricing:
Posted by Sam
More likely than not, this won’t be so much of a pricing change, but combining the Gold and Platinum package.
Please note that there is no plan to increase the price of current paying users.

"LET'S MAKE TOODLEDO THE WORLD'S BIGGEST PRODUCTIVITY TOOL!"

Do you mean bigger than Microsoft Office and G Suite?
Or do you mean bigger than Slack, Trello and Asana?
Maybe you mean bigger than Evernote and Todoist.

Also, you might want to clarify what you mean by "refer someone".

On your Careers/Jobs page, there's no info about what you require for an Android engineer.
Also, you say: "Our mission is to make Toodle the biggest and best productivity in the world".
There are several other errors.

BTW, one thing that is broken is the list of topics in this forum.

After my previous post, the list shows the right time for the Last Post but it shows that it was posted by "Toodledo".

Late last year, in response to Toodledo Needs a Project Manager, Jake wrote this:
We have thousands of tasks on our to-do list with estimated lengths for each one. Adding them all up and we have enough work on our to-do list to keep us busy for 10 years. And we're adding new tasks daily.
The problem was not lack of ideas. It was lack of resources and, to some extent, lack of expertise.

In the Future Plans announcement, Jake wrote this:
There are still a lot of ways that Toodledo can grow and improve, but I feel like I personally have taken Toodledo as far as I can take it. Now, it's time for me to step back and let some new talent take it further.
Toodledo is not "broken" but there are many ways that it can be improved. One thing that the new owners can do is compile a short list from the thousands of feature requests and get some user feedback about priorities.

We’ve come to the conclusion that people love the product as is and that adding new features should not the #1 priority at the moment.
...
How did we come to this conclusion? By speaking with you all! We did multiple surveys, calls, shared emails, and more.

Hre are some results: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1uuxJcDRlCIUvRSvl5IVQF2TmAgGhKl2u/view?usp=sharing
213 responses??

How many Toodledo users are there?

New Owners:...

Is Toodledo your main focus on a day-to-day basis? Or is it part of a portfolio of projects you've got underway?
No response after three days. It looks like you've received your answer: Sam and the guys are busy with other things.

In any case, it doesn't really matter what the new owners say. What matters is what they actually do.

They have a plan. We'll find out soon what it is.

Zenkit looks interesting. It is a customizable relational database that can be used for something like this: CRM for Sales.

In what country do the owners reside? In what country are the computer files, data etc maintained?
We all live in San Francisco area and everything in the backend will stay the same, Jake use Rackspace for his server and that stay exactly the same.
Good to know ...

I still frequently make use of a desktop tool called ToDoList by Abstractspoon, that has some features ToodleDo doesn't have.
That's quite a piece of software! It has a lot of features that Toodledo doesn't have, including a Calendar that displays task names, and Gantt charts, Burndown charts and Kanban views, plus several import and export options. Two key features that are missing: Online access and a mobile app. It is complex and highly customizable but it's overkill for most users who want to track tasks and simple projects.

I noticed that one of the Export/Import options is to/from MyLifeOrganized, which has recently released a beta version with Markdown and Google Calendar sync. There's a desktop app for Windows and mobile apps for iOS and Android. You can sync through WiFi and there's Cloud syncing through a paid subscription. No online app, though, and no Mac app.

@GSP1963,

Take a look at Todo by Appigo. Available since the App Store was launched in 2008. It's how I found out about Toodledo. (See iPhone App.)
Still available. Requires iOS 7.1 or later. Last updated Sept 30, 2015.

Current version is Todo Cloud (last updated June 5, 2018). Similar but with more features, and does not sync with Toodledo.

Regardless, I do agree with your basic premise.

Edited:
Sorry, one more example: I have an Office 365 subscription, with Office 2013 on one computer and Office 2016 on another. I originally installed 2016 on both but I had to remove it from one computer because of incompatibility with an older version of Exchange Server, and I was able to download and install the 2013 version.

Perhaps the new owners will change the name from Toodledo to ToodleDo, given that many users think that's the name ...

In any case, I’ll just wait and see what happens. For now, Toodledo does the job for me but, if there are major changes that I don't like, there are plenty of other options.

Is there a particular reason for not including your last names and the names of the companies you have started in the past? I'm inclined to be optimistic, but these omissions seem strange to me.
I agree.

Also, the name of this topic is "Future Plans" (in contrast to "Past" or "Present" plans??) and Jake says "We are about to transition ownership". That's a weird way of saying that Toodledo has been purchased.

There should be an official announcement that follows the standard format. Something like Acquisition announcement or Business Merger & Acquisition Press Release Template.

Hi Sam,

Congratulations to you and your partners in acquiring what I think is the most powerful personal online task manager, thanks to Jake's work in creating a robust, flexible platform.

Posted by Sam:
Don't worry...we don't have any major changes in mind, yet.
I worry when someone tells me not to worry ... ;-)
Over the next few weeks we'll speak 1-on-1 with as many of you as possible before we make any big changes.
I suggest you offer a financial incentive for these 1-on-1 sessions, perhaps a one-year extension of the current subscription. Still very little in relation to the time and effort required but it would be a nice token of appreciation.

Also, will you be providing a summary of your ideas for further development?
