Timeslips is changing. For years we have been limited by the Borland Database Engine and Paradox database. There were limits on slips and large number of simultaneous users could mean performance concerns. Timeslips is changing to Firebird SQL, offering far greater capacities and better performance in networked environments.
There is another big change, there will be two versions of Timeslips – Timeslips Premium and Timeslips 2016. There are two key differences in these versions. First, Timeslips Premium will use the new Firebird SQL offering greater capacities and better performance for larger networks. Timeslips 2106 will use the same Borland/Paradox we have used for years. The second difference is how the product is sold. Timeslips Premium will be sold on a monthly or annual subscription basis. There will be a provision for accessing your data if you discontinue your subscription but it will no longer be a one-time purchase. The subscription price will include technical support and updates and, depending on the level you purchase, e-center licenses. Timeslips 2016 will be sold as in the past where you purchase the software with the ability to purchase annual updates.
