BETA version of OptoDisplay Software

This download contains a BETA version of Opto 22's OptoDisplay HMI software.

Beta Version Disclaimer:

OptoDisplay is a legacy product, which is no longer getting new features and no longer going through official release cycles. Beta versions of the software are made available as-is for those who need the related bug fixes.

In general, beta versions will include bug fixes since the last official release, without adding new features. This usually enhances product stability without introducing unwanted side effects. Beta versions for legacy products have been through basic testing only, and will not be formally tested.

Ultimately, the choice will be up to the user as to whether the benefit of using the beta version is worth the risk. We simply want to make the beta version available so that you have options.
