Reply to: xep version

I've confirmed this with our legal people who in turn have contacted and verified this with RenderX.

The agreement we have to bundle XEP with XMetaL Author Enterprise allows us to distribute a license.xml file for use only with the version of XEP we bundle.

So, if you wish to use a newer version of XEP you need to contact RenderX to obtain a new license to legally run it.

I think this is understandable to some extent. The cost to license XEP is not trivial when purchased separately from XMetaL Author Enterprise (so you are getting a pretty good deal when you buy our product I guess).

Again, we do plan to keep up to date with XEP, it is likely just a matter of time.
