Dear JRebelers – we have an important announcement to make, and it has nothing to do with kittens, although we do like them. We would like to take this opportunity to announce the upcoming change to the JRebel licensing model. In an attempt to simplify our model and eliminate confusion we have decided to offer two different license types, Base and Enterprise, as opposed to the three we have been offering up to this point. The change being that from January 2nd, 2013 we will no longer be offering a Personal license.
If you are currently a Personal License holder of JRebel you will be receiving an email with instructions and how the license change will work for you going forward and how you can capitalize on your current price.
If you are a JRebel Base license holder this change will not affect you until you come up for renewal, at which time you will be simply be asked to lock each license down to a particular user (See base license overview below).
If you are a JRebel Enterprise license holder, then this change will not have any direct, rippling or any other sort of effect on your license.
If you are reading this and not currently a JRebel client, what in Sam Hill are you waiting for? Redeploys must be your best friend by now, in which case you need to get yourself and your team on JRebel immediately!
This is how the new license model will look:
- Base – this license type is meant for smaller development teams (i.e. 10 and fewer). The base license is tied to an individual and cannot be transferred. Email addresses must be provided for the user of each base license.
- Enterprise – this license type is meant for larger teams (>10), or anyone looking to take advantage of a floating license. The enterprise license can be transferred and used by different people (only 1 at a time per license), which we call the floating license.
Just so you know, we will be sending out a reminder on the 19th of December to make sure everyone is up to date and ready for the change. In the meantime if you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you and happy coding!
