The Lucid Team

Lucid v3.3 Updated

We have updated v3.3 Free Edition to cope with further changes to the Java Runtime Environment (JRE). One important change has been to remove the Applet Player deployment option. This option has become untenable due to continual breaking JRE updates and the current lack of direct support for Java Applets in Google Chrome. This is a major reason why we have moved to a JavaScript Player in v3.6. The v3.3 Builder will still allow the deployment of a key with the deployable Application edition of the v.3.3 Player.

Version v3.6 is now available to purchase.

Lucid v3.6 coming soon

The launch of Lucid v3.6 has been delayed due to a number of recent projects. However, the delay has allowed us to add even more functionality to the new JavaScript edition of the Lucid Player!

We are endeavouring to have the new release finalised and ready late December 2016 or early January 2017.
