HASP SRM 4.0 release date

Aladdin Knowledge Systems has announced an official release date for its HASP SRM 4.0 application. The program is used to protect and license a developer's hardware and software to reduce the risk of pirating. The update boasts new localization features, aiming to simplify software licensing development, deployment, and management. HASP SRM 4.0 includes new language interfaces including Chinese, Italian and Japanese. V4.0 also adds software-based licensing, locking, and product activation for Mac-native applications.

The update supports a variety of licensing models, utilizing CrossLocking technology. HASP SRM 4.0 offers enhanced support of Business Studio, and Business Studio Server API, enabling automation of tasks such as processing and recording business decisions based on a customer's order history. The update also boasts improved account administration controls.

Although HASP SRM 4.0 will be officially released next Monday, June 22nd, the update is currently available from the Aladdin website for free.

    Aladdin

    Whenever I see "Aladdin", I still think of the old Aladdin (Allume) Systems.

    Stuffit vs. Stuffyou

    The naming similarity is "ironic"--after all, Allume nee Aladdin makes the much-maligned Stuffit, while this Aladdin makes HASP hardware-based DRM that sucks just about as much!

    Actually, in fairness, they do support a Mac running as the host for a network dongle (as in, you plug a stupid USB doodad into your server and all the computers on the network ask it if there's a license available when they launch the program) for both Mac and Windows clients. I do, however, have to restart the dongle server itself about once every two weeks for no apparent reason, and the entire concept of hardware-based DRM rubs me the wrong way.
