Release notes for version 3.0.0 on March 16, 2013


New product: Runtime Designer

We were frequently asked: How can I license FlowHeater for runtime use by my clients? Our latest product "Runtime Designer" effectively makes this problem a thing of the past. You can now create Definitions with the Runtime Designer that are fully functional including use of the Batch Module for your clients who only need to download our Freeware Version. In addition, your users can make changes with only mild restrictions to the Definition themselves. However, to protect your development from your clients making unauthorized changes each Runtime Definition is encrypted and password protected.

You will find further information and examples here: Help using Runtime Designer
