Pre-Release Software - 5.4.2



The products on this page are made available for APPX customers and resellers who wish to experiment with the latest versions prior to their official release. These should be considered as "beta release" software, with no warranty expressed or implied. Therefore, APPX Software, Inc. recommends that these versions not be installed in live, production systems, but rather in self-contained test environments. We greatly appreciate any feedback that testers can provide.
