Server Error
Server Error
(Brian Gillespie) #2

You might see the beginnings of a new feature leaking in: Login to Rhino.

But it doesn’t work, so I recommend you stay away - we’ve disabled it on the server end, so even if you discover it in Tools->Options->Licenses->Change your License, or the Help->About Rhino, it won’t work.

Next week we’ll have something for you to try - and we’ll tell you more about it. Until then, the goal is to add the ability for you to manage your licenses online and log into Rhino from any computer to use your license. It will allow for floating licenses, and working offline (like being on an airplane or without internet).

But like I said, we leaked some parts in that don’t work quite yet, so hold tight until next week.
