Release of Fathom 2.2, a free version that expires 6/15/2015

Fathom 2.2 has been released, and it is free. It will expire June 15, 2015.

To download, go to the Fathom Dynamic Data Software site, fill out the form, and download your preferred version.

Please help us spread the word through social media, blogs, email, and word of mouth. You can refer people to the download site.

The backstory and why this is an expiring version: As you can read in this open letter, McGraw-Hill Education ceased publishing Fathom in January of 2014. In March they transferred the Fathom copyright to me. I’ve put together the free, expiring version so that users are not left in the lurch and I can work on a long term solution for distributing Fathom. There will be a long term solution! At the very least there will be a new, free, expiring version.

If I have versions 2.1x should I delete them? No, you should keep them. You already paid for these, and they are not substantively different from version 2.2. If and when a new version of Fathom is ready for sale, you may not want to pay for it. So keep your early version that you’ve already paid for.

What’s different in this version? As explained on the web site, there are a couple things lacking in version 2.2. And we’re not able to provide technical support. (Sorry about that.)

Thank you all for your support. Enjoy Fathom!

    Thanks so much for carrying the torch on this. Fathom is tremendous LEARNING software and I would hate to see it disappear. I was surprised and more than a little aggravated (this past fall) at McGraw-Hll’s approach to this and wondered at the time if there might be any recourse to keeping this software alive (including open-sourcing it).

    Best of luck.
