Let me reply.
Yes, Toad Data Modeler was available in freeware version in the past. Last freeware was v184.108.40.206. Since then freeware has not been available. Unfortunately, you cannot obtain this version.
Nevertheless, release of new freeware version of TDM will be discussed in our team. Our managers will consider to re-launch it again. As soon as I know more, I’ll inform all community members via our forum.
Thanks for your patience.
BETA program - BETA program continues, so you haven’t registered to our community uselessly. However, the current state is that new BETA has not been finished yet.
Let me explain: New official version is generally available (v. 220.127.116.11) and now our dev team needs some time to work on other new features and enhancements for next Betas. As soon as there is a reason to release another BETA (when some enhancements are done and we have something new to offer you to test), the BETA will be launched. There’s no use releasing the same BETA version when there is more up-to-date official release.
So, until new BETA is launched, please use the trial version, please do contact the colleagues from the sales team and ask for an override key. I’m sure there are some options to extend trial period etc.
Regarding the BETA program + current situation, I’ve informed the community members here. Please have a look:
- Beta program continues
We are working at a new Beta version. At the moment no BETA is available as the official TDM version 18.104.22.168 is the most up-to-date version.
Although you are a non-paying user and have no intention to buy our software now, it doesn’t mean that you will never buy it. Possibly you will decide to purchase it in the future (e.g. persuade your boss to purchase several licenses to the company etc.) So, here in this community we do not differentiate community members to paying and non-paying. We do care about all and appreciate any feedback. - You’ve already found a bug in our software! So, please do post and stay in touch with our dev team.
If you want to wait for the BETA, please drop by to our community to see if it’s already available. Also, I will contact you to let you know (let’s hope I won’t forget. ) In any case, we will be happy to have you as a BETA tester to check out new features and enhancements.
If you have more questions, please write me back. Thanks.
