-Below you will find the recent ENVI-met V4 release. From now on, there will be a Winter Release (around end of October to Mid November) and a Summer Release (around end of April) each year. The Winter Release usually brings new features to the system while the Summer Release is mainly dedicated to small updates and bugfixes. Users of the LITE (Basic before) Version **must** update to the newest versions within one month. ​ In addition, there will be "Hot Updates"​ available if required to those who can't wait for the next official release. ​+Below you will find the recent ENVI-met V4 release.

-With the Summer 19 release, a new license key system is introducedLicensed users can still download and continue to use the Winter1819 ​version ​and migrate to V4.4.3 at a later time. You can also install the new version ​parallel to old one if you use different folder.+== Upgrading from an older version == 
 +You may upgrade an existing ENVI-met by installing ​the new version in the same folder as the old oneIf the old version ​already uses the new license keys, no re-registration is required. You can also install the new version ​in a different folder ​and use different versions in parallel. In this case, a re-registraton of your keys will be required. Also be aware of the double-clicks on files which will always open the last installed version of the associated app.
  
-Users without a license must download the recent Summer 19 release. 
  
 +== BIO-met 2.0 ==
 +Users with **OLD BIO-met 1.x Keys** (Permanent License) need to start BIO-met 1.5 from the Windows Start Menue **NOT** the BIO-met 2.0 linked in the Headquarter. If you have bought a new license recently, you will get a NEW BIO-met key for Version 2.0 (the old one won't work) in the coming days. Please allow some time to manually process all the keys.

-To use an existing license, this release requires a one-time automatic license key update for licensed users which needs administrative interaction. In a running project or class, it is recommended to allocate a free time slot for this process. **Further information about the license conversion can be found [[http://​www.envi-met.net/​hg2e/​documents/​2019_How_to_convert_Licenses.pdf|here]]**.
