Support expired? No download in customer area?
All customers can download the software they purchased for 120 days from the purchase date only. To get the latest updates, you need to purchase annual software maintenance and support (5 levels to choose from). Software Maintenance and Support must be continuous from your initial license date - our sales team may be able to assist you with discounts on 'catch up' maintenance.
If you previously purchased annual maintenance and support, but it has has expired and you have not received an invoice for renewal, you can purchase online (support quantity must equal licensed quantity) and your download will be available within 2 business days. Alternatively you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote.
Download incomplete or slow?
With a major new release like this one, our servers can sometimes be a bit slow to provide downloads to thousands of customers at once. If your download fails, please retry later. If you are still having problems please e-mail us.

Release Cycle Changes
We previously focused on releasing major updates, including announcing plans for CVS Suite 2.8.02 and 3.1.01. Customers have overwhelmingly told us that 'major' upgrades of this kind are difficult, and have urged us to reconsider a longer lifecycle for the product without major milestone upgrades. For this reason we have deliberately scaled back development of the major new releases in favour of incremental updates to the current release platform. However there is only so long that the current 2.8.01 codeline can be supported effectively - so we are continuing to advance the development and release of CVS Suite 2.8.02 and later codelines.
We announce today the planned release and support schedule for CVS Suite.
