Your summary of the proposed new softlock option mentioned DataCAD needed a live internet connexion as it would periodically check the status of the license. When we upgrade to the next release of DataCAD:
1. Will the dongle still be available as a purchase option? (I don't have internet at home and have no need for it, yet do work at home using the second license dongle),

The software attempts to validate the license every day, but will continue to run up to 45 days without validation. Once 45 days has elapsed, you'll have to connect to the Internet and run DataCAD too validate the license. Once the license is validated, the timer is reset. You can then remain disconnected from the Internet and continue to run DataCAD for another 45 days.
