Today we've released TurboFloat 4.3. The marquee feature of this release is that when your app uses the TurboFloat library your app can now release any active leases when a computer goes to sleep. And your app will also attempt to regain that lease when the computer "wakes up".

An example of a computer going to sleep is when your customer shuts their laptop:


The laptop is now asleep. If you were using TurboFloat in your app, and your app had a lease before the computer went to sleep, the lease would be dropped immediately. This frees up the lease to be used by any of that person's colleagues.

Humans are messy and unpredictable

This feature is just the latest example of our focus on real-world user-behavior. A customer isn't going to switch to every app they have open, see if it's using floating licensing, and if so, invoke whatever method you've created to drop the lease while keeping the app running.

That would be a nightmare; no one has time for that.

A real person is either going to just walk away from the computer (and the computer will put itself to sleep after a few minutes). Or the person will explicitly put the computer to sleep (for example by shutting the laptop).

Our job is handling this, and other real-world behavior, so you don't have to.

If you're not already using TurboFloat for your floating licensing, signup for LimeLM today (it's free to try — no credit card needed).
