Factory I/O 2.5.0 released

The new release of Factory I/O 2.5.0 is now available for download. This release brings quality of life improvements when working with scene files, several enhancements to Modbus, OPC drivers and the driver window and an updated Factory I/O SDK for .NET Standard. We recommend all Factory I/O users to update to this latest stable release.

Open and Save windows now allow changing the default directory, and choosing how the scenes are ordered.

Forced tags are now displayed with a warning icon in the driver window.

Another major change is dropped support for on-premise license servers.

So awesome! I am so happy about the “save as” revision. Our lab computers are frozen (everything resets when you reboot) and students often forgot to transfer their files before they shut down and their work would be lost.
