Announcing Intuiface version 6.3
The middle of Summer 2018 brings with it Intuiface Version 6.3, a release notable for its coordination with a corporate rebranding initiative. We spell out details of that rebranding here.

maintain a license of individual license keys or log into every Player.
there are additional improvements. For example, the Shared and Deploy Console
