The duration of use of the beta version is on the 25. October 2019-limited, then a further use is only permitted with a valid license.

Questions and suggestions about the new Version can be left in the Forum; In the case of problems or disagreements, we ask for a short feedback in the appropriate area, so that we can take care of that.

Adapt the version numbers

The Forum App is used for historical reasons, a higher version number, causing some confusion. Starting from this Version, all products run under the unified version number 5.2.
