June 9, 2016 – Shimmer is pleased to announce that it plans to release its most advanced version of Consensys (Consensys V1.0) by then end of Q3, 2016.  The release will actually comprise two versions: Consensys Basic, a free version that provides basic functionality for collecting data from Shimmer sensors, and Consensys Pro, an upgraded version of our software with optional modules to provide additional features.  Consensys Pro will become our flagship software which we plan to continue to enhance with new features and new hardware.

To support our continued software development, we will be charging have to charge for Consensys Pro and its optional modules.  We expect to be able to supply Consensys Basic without charge for the foreseeable future.  We will start to phase out previous versions of Consensys and other software.  Consensys V0.4.4 will cease to be available for download on October 1, 2016.  We will cease to provide support and upgrades to Consensys V0.4.4 as of December 31, 2016.  That being said, all current users will have a license to continue to use this version indefinitely.

In conjunction with our release of Consensys Pro, we will be offering an extended software maintenance contract to cover users after the initial one-year of support that is included as part of the purchase of the software license.  The software maintenance and support package will entitle users to free software updates and guaranteed levels of support and response times.
We are excited that these changes will position Shimmer to provide enhanced functionality and improved support for our customers.  Please visit our Q&A section, if you have any questions
