Version 2 Software Releases

Along with the newly updated website, all software products have been updated to version 2 – Just Barcodes, Just Barcodes CL and Sudoku Now!

To the outside world, the changes will appear fairly minor. But there have been a number of internal changes. The revision histories, accessed from the download pages, have more details.

Licence Changes

All version 2 software requires version 2 licence keys. This is a primary reason for updating all the software versions together.

Since 2004, we have provided free lifetime updates. Sadly, that has become unsustainable, and changes became necessary.

From version 2 onwards, there is a choice of the following:

Standard Licence – this is similar to before – except that major upgrades will now require a new key, for which there will be a charge. If a major upgrade becomes available within 3 months of purchase, we will provide it free of charge – just fill in a free upgrade form. Minor updates will still be free, as before.

Subscription Licence – this will work for a fixed period, starting from when the key is first used. However, there is the advantage that you are entitled to free major upgrades, for a fixed period, starting from the date of purchase. A new key will be required, but will be provided free of charge – simply fill in a free upgrade form. The period for the new key will be based on the date of purchase and the length of the subscription. Minor updates will of course be free as well.
