Pre Release SNIP editions

Some of our licensed users have asked for the development team to post the latest edition of SNIP with developing but officially still unreleased features at a common page. This page has been created to serve that need.  Most users will not need these transitory downloads and should wait until the production build is tested and placed into a general release.  

Consider these releases to be like the “weekly build” downloads found on some other sites.  There is not any reason for the average SNIP deployment to use these builds.  There is some possibility that these builds will be unstable, but of course we only learn that after the fact.   Not every feature developed here will available for every model of SNIP (in fact few of these features are intended for the free Lite model), and no such promise should be implied.  Some builds may run for less than six months after their code build release date, this will be noted if used.  Some of these builds will require a unique password to unlock the build or the feature being tested. If the build is restricted in any way, that will be noted below. Not all interim builds will be released in this way.

And no warranty or any fitness of use etc. should be inferred from the code placed here.   Our normal license terms, patent use restrictions, acknowledgments of the use of open source code in the work, and our trademarks all still apply.  SNIP® is a registered trademark of SCSC.  Now that we have gone over all the legal stuff….

Pre-Release Copies of SNIP, use at your own risk


Current Pre-Release

There are no pre-release copies available for general download at this time.

The revision 1.10.0 (production) built for use with all 32/64 bit Windows platforms was released on July 12th 2017.

The release for 64 bit Ubuntu platforms was also released the same day, and henceforth will use the same release numbering.

You can download either edition from the primary download page.



SNIP release x  – Will provide further features to support our Pro user operation of commercial Casters and our more general Basic user operation with integrated web support and pages.

The SNIP feature road map is largely driven by user requests.  We feel that at this time we have provided most everything the smaller network operator might conceivably want to have (and at a cost that is many thousands of dollar less costly than other alternatives).  If you feel we missed a trick, please let us know with an email.
