DAZ 3D is pleased to announce the public version of DSON Importer for Poser BETA, version 188.8.131.52!
What is a BETA?
Despite our best efforts, DAZ 3D cannot possibly test the software under all possible conditions. So, we are providing this version of the application to the general public in order to uncover problems that were not discovered during internal testing. We expect that there will still be problems and we hope that when users encounter any problems, they will report them to the Bug Tracker so that they can be validated, prioritized and fixed.
As with any software classified as being in the BETA phase of development, you should expect to encounter bugs. Any bugs you do encounter while using BETA software can vary in terms of severity, from minor features that do not work correctly to problems that cause your computer to crash. Before choosing to use BETA software for production purposes, you should decide whether the benefit of new features and bug fixes provided by the BETA version outweighs the risk of instability you may encounter.
What is new in this version? Do I need to update my copy?
The 184.108.40.206 version resolves several issues and implements many improvements since the 220.127.116.11 General Release. All new downloads of the DSON Importer for Poser BETA product (SKU: 16190) will be of this version. A Change Log with additional information can be viewed online within the Documentation Center portion of our site.

Can I have the General Release and the BETA installed at the same time?
The simple answer is… You can only have one version of the DSON Importer for Poser can be installed at a time.
The more complicated answer is yes, but you can only have one version of DSON Importer for Poser installed per installation of Poser 9/Pro 2012. Poser 9 is only 32 bit, while Poser Pro 2012 offers the ability to install both a 32 bit version and a 64 bit version.
Is there any documentation?
