I believe answering your question is important as this may be helpful to future audience.
At the moment, developers can acquire Syn Bot Framework
or VA Framework
Pro and Enterprise Licenses. The Subscriptions/Products page usually just shows a list of licenses you own. Instead of a Quote system where previously developers would request a quote for licensing a framework, this year we've chosen to have transparent pricing for all license types mentioned right within their accounts.
Because of the new update system for front-end apps like Oryzer or VA Frameworks, the users are required to activate their product upon installation and for that we've decided to let users use their Syn Account credentials.
Coming to SIML Classic and Modern
. We haven't had any major update available for SIML Classic for more than 2 years and have chosen to end support for it by the end of 2020. Using SIML Classic is still possible (and totally valid) as we aren't marking any classes as Obsolete to avoid deployment hassles.
The future of SIML Modern is being discussed. We've migrated Syn Bot Studio's SIML Modern editor right into Oryzer Studio
so developers can start migrating to Workspace environment. Workspace projects have certain key advantages over SIML (including but not limited to) extremely fast load up, smaller memory footprint and complex sequential programming support.
Having said that, support for SIML Modern
is still active however, new features
added in Syn Bot Framework 4.5.+ are aligned with Workspace nodes instead of SIML elements or tags.
