Yes, this is the final V2.0 release of these components. However, it is not available for free download. It is intended specifically for use in non-robotics applications. If you look at the web site there are a couple of impressive case studies.
The full RDS kit will be available in a couple of weeks time and will contain the same CCR and DSS code. However, the licensing for RDS is different from the Toolkit.
P.S. Look carefully at the ccrdss home page. Did you notice the Concurrent Cube Rotation (CCR) on the Dynamic Silverlight Screen (DSS)? Aren't acronyms fun? :-)
We are doing internal R&D here in Montreal. We are not interested in selling anything we build with the CCR & DSS to the public, although we are interested in using the toolkit for non-robotics applications. In two weeks when the 2.0 final is released will it contain all the information in the commercial version of the product available for download here:
http://www.microsoft.com/ccrdss/#GetIt? Or will we need to pay for a commercial license to get the toolkit? Sorry if this is redundant just double checking to be sure.
Hi, any commercial application (including internal R&D) requires a developer license. If you would like to just evaluate us for a short period ( i think its 60 days) you can indeed download the robotics express version, when it comes out soon. It has the same runtime and samples.
The good news is tha ccr/dss toolkit gives you unlimited runtime licenses with each developer seat license you buy.
Also to clarify, the runtime is identical and shared across CCR/DSS toolkit and all robotic SKUs.
