RobotLaser Beta (Free) end of life cycle
« on: April 30, 2017, 05:55:19 AM »

As many times mentioned
BETA VERSION COMPLETED HIS LIFE CICLE
is too much effort to maintain two versions simultaneously, so...
the Free (Beta) version is no longer supported since January 2017,
but, up to yesterday, was freely available and distributed.
Nevertheless, many people ask to be assisted...........
Also, many people have exchanged the Free Version with
Unlimited Licenses.......That is not the case.

As explained several times, the FREE license is limited to one license for user !

Some people came to ask for a lot of licenses on different devices
,
arguing that reformatting the USB Key changes its (hardware) serial number . ?!?!?!


For all these reasons I decided to end the distribution of the free version.


In substitution you can download version 1.0.x and request the Demo or Light License

(functionality similar to Free Version), light license will be free until 31/05/2017.


From 01/06/2017 the versions will be:

Demo:       Free of charges:
Functionality limited to demo only
                   (GRBL 0.9, no Save/Print, max 5000 rows of gcode, max 5 minutes each session)

Light:          Cost: 10 for license, limited functionality, without expiration.

Full:             Cost: 30 the 1st license 15 the next, free upgrades for 1 year

Enterprise: Cost:1,500 - 100 self-managed licenses, free lifetime upgrades


Upgrade from Light to Full on the same license (same hd) : 20


during the month of May a comparison chart between versions
will be published.

I regret having to make this decision
,

but I fear that it was not clear when I said that the Beta Phase was over

and that the Free Version (aka Beta 0.9) would have been available Free
only for single license and WITHOUT support .

See you soon
Carlo
