Build 1.00.6320 Available!

Posted on March 7, 2016

The new Murl Engine Build 1.00.6320Beta is available for download. This is a major update release with support for Visual Studio 2015 and several improvements and fixes. Please note the Visual Studio deployment change.

Visual Studio 2015

Support for Visual Studio 2015 has been added. To keep the download package at a reasonable size we will, beginning with this release, only include the latest supported Visual Studio version in the archive. Therefore the download package will contain the Visual Studio libraries for Visual Studio 2015 only. We still support Visual Studio 2008, 2010 and 2013 but don't deliver libs for these versions per default. So if you need to work with an older Visual Studio version, please contact us via the forums or write us an email and we will provide you a separate download link.
