SerialPort Changelog

Licensing

SerialPort is licensed Per Developer Seat. When multiple developers will use SerialPort, multiple licenses need to be purchased. For example, if SerialPort is installed on a network then a license must be purchased for each developer who will have access to the files. Once you deploy your application there is generally no runtime license so long as the end user installs the software. Check license details click here.
