Post subject:  NeoRouter Professional v0.9.10 (beta) released

We're very excited to announce that NeoRouter Professional v0.9.10.1650 beta is now available for download.

From this release, we split NeoRouter product into two editions - Free and Professionl - to meet the requirements from different users. Both of them share the same code base and solid core functionalities. However, they may contain different features and will be developed separately. The NeoRouter Free edition focuses on home users, who need a simple VPN solution; while NeoRouter Professional editions focuses on the business users, who have more requirements for security, customization and so on.

In this build we implemented a couple of new features for the business users and fixed some bugs.

Please read the notes before trying NeoRouter Pro if you have NeoRouter Free installed.

1. NeoRouter Pro will use its own database and cannot use the one created by NeoRouter Free, so after installing pro, you may see your list is empty and have to setup your NR network again.

2. The client/server applications from Free and Pro editions cannot communicate with another.

3. The language files used in 0.9.8 and 0.9.9 will not be recognized in the v0.9.10, as the resource files are upgraded. We will publish the latest resource files soon.

What's new

* Implemented sub-network feature
