We are testing Automate 10 at the moment and would like to know how long Beta 2 will be available for. Additionally, when will version 10 be released and if we purchase a license for version 9 now, will an upgrade to 10 be included if we have maintenance for 1 year?

 

Thanks

Our company is also very interested in this information.

If your maintenance is valid at the time of the v10 release, then you are entitled to a v10 license. Public Beta 2 will not expire for a few months.

Thanks, is there a fixed date for beta expiry? We just want to plan our decision about whether to purchase Automate sometime in Q1 and it would be helpful to know a date by which we would need to complete our analysis of the beta.

Hi James,

Beta 1 expires 12/31/13 and Beta 2 expires 03/01/14. Keep in mind that the expiration date does not dictate the release schedule for v10. It can be released prior to the expiration of of Beta 2.

Hi Leonard,

Is it possible that the beta could expire prior to the release of Automate 10? Are there plans for any more beta releases?

Thanks,

James

Hi James,

Our Beta releases will not dictate the release of v10.

We do hope to have another Beta release but do not have an ETA.

Ricardo,
i understand your remark and agree. However, it would be a pitty if the beta expires before the next beta or the final release is available.

Gijsberth,

If another beta is planned, then it will be released prior to the expiration of the previous beta.
