Since October 29, 2021, flow5 is proposed under a permanent licence at a fixed price and no longer on a subscription basis. The licence is on a per-user basis and authorizes the installation of the application on one workstation. In case of change of hardware, the user has the possibility to move the licence to the new platform.
For students who would like to use flow5 for an education related project, please use the site’s contact form to submit the details of the project and to request a temporary licence.
In the long term there are no firm plans. All options are on the table, including open-sourcing the program or continuing its sale on the current basis. This will depend on factors such as the support received and the intent and need to continue, or not, the development. Whatever the decision, the long term intent is that flow5 remains affordable for private individuals.
