Do you provide DSSR 1.* downloads ?
« on: September 15, 2020, 08:38:20 am »
Hi xiangjun,

Do you provide downloads of old versions ? I published using v1.9.9 and need to ensure reproductibility.
If not, do you allow us to embed the executable in a larger software container (e.g. Docker) ? The DSSR functionalities will not be available from outside the container.

I also could ensure my work gives the same results with DSSR 2.0, which is probably the case, but the CTV licensing page is empty (issue ? maintenance ?).
EDIT: (for people reading this in the future): Disable your ad blocker so that the page's content loads correctly.

What is the best thing to do ?

Hi Louis,

Thanks for your inquires on the DSSR 2.0 release and the CTV licensing.

Only the latest DSSR is maintained to make the long-term support of the software simple and sustainable. DSSR 2.0 (and future releases) should be backward compatible: the main new features of DSSR 2.0 are the modeling modules and the professional manual. All DSSR-related issues should be reported on the open 3DNA Forum, unless a support agreement is arranged otherwise.

I have recently received quite a few enquires about the licensing terms on distributing DSSR as part of a pipeline or in a web service/server. CTV is woking on a policy on such usages. Please ask the CTV for an update on DSSR 2.0 licensing.

Best regards,
