What is Grapher Beta and how can I participate?

Grapher Beta is an unreleased version of Grapher, distributed for feedback and testing purposes only. It gives you a sneak-peek of upcoming Grapher features and the chance to provide feedback on the new features and report any issues. Active maintenance on your Grapher license allows you exclusive access to Grapher Beta. 

Run Grapher Beta as a stand-alone installation using your current Grapher license, or install Grapher Beta alongside your current Grapher software. There are no specific questions to answer or workflows to try, we just ask that you use the Beta version in your day-to-day work and let us know of any issues you encounter or any features you've found that don't work as expected. Please email us with any concerns, suggestions or feedback at graphersupport@goldensoftware.com

Who can use it?

There's no sign-up necessary to try out Grapher Beta, you just need to download and install the Beta build. If you have a Grapher license under active maintenance, you will be able to use the Beta build in lieu of, or in addition to, your current version of Grapher until your maintenance expires. Grapher Beta is not available to Trial users or customers with expired maintenance.

  • If you have a Grapher license that has expired maintenance, you will need to purchase a maintenance renewal to use Grapher Beta.
  • If you have an old Grapher license that does not have maintenance, you will need to purchase a new license to enroll in software maintenance and use Grapher Beta. 
  • If you are currently using the Grapher Trial then you will need to purchase a Grapher license to access Grapher Beta.

Please refer to the following article for restrictions on Beta use: Grapher Beta: Terms & Conditions
