Last update on Jan. 5, 2018.

SoftPLC Web Studio version 8.1 has been released!  This version includes expanded capabilities and also addresses a critical security vulnerability.

Existing customers can upgrade at no cost if the license was purchased on or after July 1, 2017 or if you have a current Maintenance Agreement.  Reduced price upgrades are available to customers that purchased the license between Jan 1, 2017 and June 30, 2017.  Free or reduced cost upgrades must be requested by March 8, 2018.  If you don't qualify for the free/reduced upgrade, you can purchase the upgrade at 60% of license cost through March 8, 2018.  Contact support@softplc.com, referencing your Registration Number(s), for more details and upgrade costs (if any).

Some new features in version 8.1:

  • Support for all native objects in HTML5 (SMA Clients and IoTVIEW)
  • OPC UA Server

Security Bulletin!!!  Vulnerabilities were found in Web Studio version 8.0 Service Pack 2 Patch 1 and prior.  It is recommended that customers review the bulletin to determine if their systems are at risk, and upgrade as soon as possible.
