Reminder - AW price increase
The version 2.0 will be sold on the same terms as 1.0 including the source code and including 12 months free code updates subscription.
The version 2.0 will not be released under any free open source licenses.
Version 2.0 prices:
Standard Edition (released Feb 8):
- Single developer $395 (upgrade from 1.0 single developer - free)
- Site license $2450 (upgrade from 1.0 site license - free)
Professional Edition (released end of Feb)
- Single developer $1850 (upgrade from 1.0 single developer - $695)
- Site license $9850 (upgrade from 1.0 site license - $3950)
The difference between standard and professional editions is in browser and doctype support. The standard edition works only in IE and Mozilla/Firefox with 'quirks mode' doctypes, while professional edition also supports Safari (and Opera in 2.1) and both 'quirks' and 'standards-compliant mode' doctypes.
'quirks' mode doctypes supported by the standard edition are:
No doctype declaration
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN">
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
All doctypes which trigger "standards-compliant" mode will require ActiveWidgets Professional Edition.
So in case you are thinking of buying AW license - you can still get it at 1.0 prices but only during the next two days (until Feb 8th).
