Windows 8.1, OS X 10.9 Mavericks and Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander

We have been busy testing all of our software products on Windows 8.1, OS X 10.9 Mavericks and Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander. The result is that each operating system will be fully supported in all of our new releases.

As a bonus for our OS X users, Gatekeeper will allow passage thanks to code signing and Full-Screen mode will make better use of your display real estate.

Independence Day brings Freedom for Our Users

On the 4th of July, our Independence Day here in the U.S., we are announcing the simplification of our licensing model.

One product license now covers all operating systems so our users have the freedom to run on Windows, OS X and Linux. They also have the freedom to run on as many computers as they own.

  • Freedom to run on All Operating Systems
  • Freedom to run on All Computers

New license keys have been sent to all of our users. Refunds have been provided for any additional operating system license purchases.

Enjoy the great value provided by our simplified licensing model.

To our American users, Happy Independence Day!

How-To: Run 32-bit Apps on Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit

Unlike 64-bit versions of Windows and OS X that run 32-bit apps without any extra effort, Ubuntu requires the manual installation of 32-bit libraries. The good news is that only one command needs to be executed at the command line. For newer releases of Ubuntu, like 13.04, it is sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-multiarch. MultiArch support was introduced in release 11.04. For earlier releases of Ubuntu, the command is sudo apt-get install ia32-libs. You can read more about MultiArch support in Ubuntu at Ubuntu MultiArch.
