Version 8.0 of the Manco .NET Licensing System has been released

Manco .NET Licensing System version 8.0 is available now. You can get 15-days trial version at the http://www.mancosoftware.com/licensing/download.htm

List of the most significant changes made in the new version:

  1. Created protection library for .NET Windows 8 Store Applications.
  2. Simplified implementation of the license protection in the customer's applications. Eliminated using of the LicenseProvider attribute and LicenseManager.Validate call in the protected class. The ILicenseKeyProvider can be implemented in any class in the project. The instance of the License class can be created as simple as “License license = new License(keyProvider);”. 
  3. Changed license file signature method. Pay attention, the new protection library can’t use license files created by License Manager (or License Shop) version 7.1 and early. But License Manager version 8.0 can creates license files for new protection library as well as for the early versions.
  4. Protection libraries for the medium trust environment are included into the distribution.
  5. New web-method added to the Activation Web Service. This method allows send requests for license activation/validation and gets responses in the encrypted form. For additional security the AWS response data is stamped with Date and Time and signed. Currently following operations are supported: product activation, product deactivation, get customer information, check license existence and online license validation.
  6. New class AwsHelper has been added to the protection library. It simplifies communication of your application with Activation Web Service using encrypted interface.  This class provides methods for the synchronous calls as well as for the asynchronous calls. The asynchronous calls are implemented using Task Framework which makes possible using of the async/await style programming in .NET Framework 4.5 applications.
  7. Added ability to specify which custom values should be copied when upgrade license to the new version of the product.  For example, "CryptoKey" shouldn't be copied, because in the most cases it is version (or license type) specific.
  8. License Manager and Protected Storage Cleaner are able to clear protected storage for the Windows 8 Store Applications.
  9. Added ability to see all purchases for the customer.
  10. Added ability to see all activations for the single purchase.
  11. Added ability to specify which control should be used to edit custom value.
