on 09 Sep 2015 6:27 PM

We are happy to announce that the latest version of GrandVJ 2.1 has now entered the public beta phase.

We always aim to offer the highest quality software solutions and we believe that this can only be achieved with your participation and feedback. Your help is really welcome in stabilizing this version, so please bring up any issues or bugs that you might encounter. And, if you like everything you see, positive feedback is also appreciated.

We are, at this stage, still working on a few remaining issues however if you are running Mac OS X Yosemite or Windows 10 we recommend to use this beta rather than the last official version.
