The DAZ Studio 4.5 SDK Release Candidate 3* is now available for the general public.
This is NOT the General Release of the DAZ Studio 4.5 SDK. Plugins can be built against this version and submitted for serial number prefix assignment, building of installers, smoke testing and public beta, but final versions of any plugins built against this Release Candidate will NOT be published in the store for purchase. Plugins developed using this SDK require a binary compatible version of the DAZ Studio 4.5 Release Candidate 3. Earlier versions of DAZ Studio 4.x are NOT binary compatible with this SDK Release Candidate. All plugins will need to be compiled against the Production Release of DAZ Studio 4.5, using the General Release of the DAZ Studio 4.5 SDK, once it becomes available.
*The SDK is required for building compiled plugins for DAZ Studio. It is NOT required to author DAZ Script files. For more information on DAZ Script please see this post.

Only newly “purchased” orders will indicate “DAZ Studio 4.5 SDK Release Candidate 3” as the product name in your Itemized Order History and/or My Downloadable Products.
