Licensing

  • The Server Runtime no longer requires a restart when applying a new license.
  • When using unlicensed features, a timer specific to that feature is started. Server operation continues after that feature timer expires.
  • Added new system tags that provide detailed information on license status:
    • _TimeLimitedFeatures: A list of all features that are or have been used and have a timer counting down (including the remaining time).
    • _ExpiredFeatures: A string array providing a list of features with expired timers.
    • _LicensedFeatures: A list of all licensed features in use that are not time limited.
  • Removed the _IsDemo system tag.
  • Streamlined and simplified product licensing, now providing details about what is licensed, license status, and products eligible for upgrade.
  • Added the ability for users to add installation location details (such as machine name, location, and description) during the licensing process.
  • Added support for viewing previous version licenses (V5.x) within the License Utility. V5.x licenses display as “Invalid for Current Version” and can be transferred for upgrade.
  • Added support for activating and transferring licenses directly within the License Utility for servers with internet access. Servers in offline environments can utilize the My Kepware web portal for licensing the product.
  • Multiple products can now be activated or transferred in a single transaction.
  • Users under Support & Maintenance Agreements are no longer required to relicense the product after renewing support. Users have two options for renewing the server eligibility status:
    • Button click for servers with internet access
    • Single file import for servers in offline environments
  • License log is now stored on the server, providing an audit trail of licensing actions for asset management and troubleshooting.
  • Added German language support.
  • Added Japanese language support.

Server Administration

  • Added support for exporting project files to a human-editable file in JSON format. This replaces the XML file format previously used to provide a human-editable file. The change supports modernization of server interfaces and the addition of the Configuration API Service, allowing programmatic access to server configuration.
  • If a project includes configuration for features not present in the KEPServerEX installation, the server loads the configuration features available and caches the remainder.
