Another version of the Plant Base 2 Beta is available for download from the website, 2.0.33. I don’t talk much about each update, but this one is important as it is a significant step toward production release.
The first public Beta test version of the new Plant Base 2 program is available for download. A lot more information and download links are on the web pages for the Beta test.
Some sections of the program are not finished yet, but with most of the main features working I thought that some users may want to to take an early look at it. As with any Beta software, it is best to treat it with a little caution! However during many hours of testing here, recent builds have behaved well with no major issues.
We have reduced the cost of the Plant Base licence to £25. This a permanent reduction by £10 and not just a seasonal sale price, but is equal to the Spring and Autumn offers that we ran last year.
Effective from today – see the purchase page
It has been quite a long time since there was an update to the plant database itself, so here it is – Data Release 22.
There is no program version update to go with it, the production program for Windows remains at version 1.6.1 and the mobile edition at 1.7. The downloadable install files now use Data Release 22, as will all newly supplied CD’s. The free web database, Plant Base Online, has also been updated to the same release level.
We are really into autumn now, with cooler weather and the garden showing all the seasonal signs. So we are doing our traditional autumn sale on the price of Plant Base license registrations. The price has been reduced to 25 GBP, the same as we did in spring.
