The brand new SCARM version is ready and published. Read more about it here:

SCARM v. 1.0 Milestone Released

That Milestone version starts a new epoch in the developing of SCARM. Get ready for many new functions and features that will come with the next updates and the future SCARM extensions!

Someone on one of the Facebook groups said they had downloaded SCARM and now there is a charge. Is this true @Mixy ? I haven't upgraded my version yet, so can't comment personally.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Yes, SCARM is now divided on two programs - a freeware one (but limited) and a paid version (with new features and without any limitations).

Read more in the article about the v. 1.0.0 release in my previous post.

Why I am doing this is explained here: SCARM Approaches v.1.0 Milestone

@Mixy sorry, but that link won't work. The server can't be found.

I've exchanged a few PMs with Mixy, since I was unable to connect @ 2 pm. Mixy confirms the site is up. Probably an Internet DNS issue, that will pass in time when they reboot the Internet. :D

Here are the SCARM blog posts for July and August.

Don't miss the updated article about how to Print Whole Layout in 1:1 Scale and also the summary, that describes Everything About The Transition to SCARM 1.0 Milestone.

About the 'website not opening' problem - it seems like a DNS misconfiguration or issue in some DNS server, because the SCARM webserer is up and running. If you still cannot reach the website, try to change your DNS settings to 8.8.8.8 - that is the Google public DNS server and it should solve that.

The new SCARM version is ready and published. Read more about it here:

SCARM v. 1.1 Released

This version allows layers visibility to be applied also in 3D viewing mode, adds new and updated tracks and objects libraries and fixes several bugs from the previous release.

@Mixy

Mixy, if this is not a freeware version maybe we need to start a new thread rather than mislead anyone.

SCARM is still free for small and medium projects (up to 100 tracks), but larger track plans require license and that cost a small fee. I agree that new thread should be started or may be this one should be renamed (if possible).

You can still use SCARM without a license but there is a limit of 100 tracks and/or objects and 5 layers in a project,

That's why I was asking whether the 100 piece rule applied to the new version 1.1 as, if not, the version 1.1 should not appear under 'Free planning software'
