Major News!
Release branch 4.3 (post-production) will be available soon.
To be released as open-source (Apache-2.0 license).

Product sales have been discontinued.

These products have had a nice run of 21 years in the commercial marketplace. We've reached the point where this company does not have the resources to take the software to the next level. Dr. Whiteley, the founder of the company has decided to not "sell out", which would almost assuredly mark the end of life of the software. Rather, by releasing the software into the open-source domain, it is hoped that others will help carry this work forward. Dr. Whiteley, will continue evolving the programs, both directly and through coordination with interested developers. The Apache license is compeletely free and open, allowing commercial use and even resale. Packages will continue to be available from this web site, though without password protection. Source code will be available as well.

To our customers: Thank You for your support over the years. You have helped build whatever comes next.

Please have patience while this web site and underlying infrastructure transitions to an open-source distribution model.
