Dear John Smith,
We are happy to send you this next issue of the DeskProto newsletter,
about "CNC machining for non-machinists". We hope
that you will enjoy reading.
The DeskProto Hobby-license is back !
We promised you that the Hobby license would be back in DeskProto V 6.
As that new version is not yet ready we decided to now offer the 4.2 edition as
a Hobby-license, so at a very low price (only for hobbyist users).
This offer comes with a free update to a V 6
Hobby-license later this year. The hobby license is available via
your reseller or via our webshop.

DeskProto V6 is almost ready for beta testing
The new DeskProto V 6.0 will contain exciting new features. A few highlights:
+ Multithreaded toolpath calculations, making DeskProto even faster
+ Completely new wizards, including roughing and finishing
+ No admin rights needed (so no UAC warnings), and Aero compatible
+ Faster graphics and faster file loading.
As the V6 development takes longer than expected
(sorry about that) we include a free update to V6
with every DeskProto V5 that is sold now.
We hope to soon start beta testing: please email if you want to participate.

The latest project on the DeskProto Gallery is a presentation

eye-catcher at a trade shown in Rio de Janeiro. The model has been
made by modelmaker PROTOway in Porcia (Italy), for
