Some of you might have noticed that coincident with releasing GAMS 30.1, we have introduced some changes to our licensing model [https://www.gams.com/latest/docs/UG_License.html].

22 years ago, in 1998, we released the first native 32 bit windows version of GAMS. This allowed modelers to implement much bigger models than possible before. A year later, we introduced our 32-bit IDE (for those of you young enough to remember, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 98 were state of the art back then).
