Tape Label Studio 2 released

2 years after the last stable release of Tape Label Studio 1 (Version 1.2.2 in April 2015) Tape Label Studio 2 is finally available! Two months ago we already released a beta version which was almost feature-complete. The now released final version contains only a few changes and a lot bug fixes.

Tape Label Studio 2’s data and code structures have been redesigned internally using .NET Framework 4.6, which is a requirement now, giving more flexibility, stability, enhanced speed and less code to maintain. The advanced mode has been rebuild from scratch. It does not rely on automatic mode any more but provides the same powerful features as before and many more. Tape Label Studio 2 now also offers tools to create continuous paper templates. To get you started Tape Label Studio comes with a Linear Tape Open LTO template for continuous paper rolls with a width of 76mm giving you the possibility to print endless LTO backup tape labels in a single job.

Since this is a major release, Tape Label Studio 1 licenses are not valid vor Tape Label Studio 2. If you bought a Tape Label Studio 1 license before you can check for an upgrade. All customers that bought Tape Label Studio 1 after April, 2nd 2016 get a free update when using this link.
