Excel Software has announced QLRT Xcode 1.1 for Xcode developers. A static library implementation of the QuickLicense runtime software for license management, QLRT Xcode can be used to configure "all aspects" of a software license so that a developer builds a tiny encrypted ticket file when using the tool.

This encrypted ticket file is then bound to an application with a function call when the QLRT library file is dropped into the source code.
Xcode programmers can use the new version for "almost any" software protection, activation, or licensing requirement via a simple function call.
"Many" License Support
The runtime allows one software build to support trial, product, subscription, floating, try/buy, or educational licenses. The activation process for protected software can support manual, semi-automated, or fully automated activations through an online activation server.
"While one license command is sufficient for many applications, the runtime library supports dozens of command strings to access all licensing features available in the QuickLicense system. Runtime commands include license release, restore, reset, suspend, remote enabling of features, field read and write, plus data send and receive through the activation server," said Excel Software, in a press statement.
QLRT Xcode is part of the Excel Software protection and licensing solutions for Mac OS X and Windows software that includes QuickLicense, QuickLicense Server, LicenseSupport, WebActivation, AirLicense, OfficeProtect, DocProtect, AppProtect, and the Safe Activation Service. For example, a protected application built with QLRT Xcode can run on client computers within a customer network controlled by a floating license server generated with QuickLicense Server.
