August 28th, 2005

We are pleased to announce the release of version 4.0 of TSMManager!

Can you upgrade to this version?

That depends on the "maintenance end date" of your license. You can see at the top of your viewer window when your maintenance expires. If this date is earlier than the date of the current download version, then you cannot run it. It will install, but it will not run. If this is the case, you have to buy additional maintenance time for your programme.

If your date is later than the current download version, just go ahead and upgrade at no charge at all.
