If you have a license for any previous version of the product, this is a free upgrade.

If not, you can try out the application before you need to purchase a license for the product. During the trial period, the fractal images are watermarked with the product name. Other than that, the trial version is identical to the registered version. When you register the product the watermark is removed from the fractal images.

When you purchase a product license, you will be sent an email containing licensing information which you can use to convert the trial version of the Fractal Science Kit to a registered version. See Registering the Product for details.

To purchase a license for the Fractal Science Kit, click Purchase.

Downloading the Documentation

You only need to download the documentation if the version currently installed on your machine is different than the version given in the download link below. The version of the documentation installed on your machine can be found on the About dialog. The About dialog is displayed by clicking the About Fractal Science Kit command on the Help menu of the Fractal Window. If the About dialog says the documentation is Online, it means the documentation is not currently installed on your machine.

Note that the minor version number of the product is independent of that of the documentation and these generally do not match.

The Fractal Science Kit documentation is a disk-based version of the product web site that does not include the tutorials, the fractal image gallery, or the fractal images found throughout these pages. If you do not download the documentation, the Fractal Science Kit will connect to the product web site over the Internet when you try to open the documentation. I recommend that you defer downloading the documentation until after you have completed the tutorials since you will need to connect to the product web site to access the tutorials.

A description of the example programs and instructions for downloading/installing them is located on the page:
