Just checked this. It shows $49.75 USD?
Hello everybody and Merry Christmas.
We proudly present to you release of ReHIPS 2.3.0 DOWNLOAD As usual there are lots of changes.
We'd like to express our sincerest and deepest gratitude to beta-testers and other guys (and gals?), who tested, reported problems, endured remote debugging sessions, gave suggestions and really helped a lot to fix issues and shape ReHIPS as it is now. Thank you all very much, we really appreciate it.
Enjoy this release. And as usual, don't hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or suggestions.
@ReHIPS Merry Christmas.
I just did an over the top install, and apparently it doesn't needs a reboot to complete the install.
lol @Tarnak you are quite fast
I am... "Johnny-on-the-spot" .
Yup, we tried our best to make everything (install, update, uninstall, etc.) reboot-less. But sometimes reboot is necessary though, but it's a way Windows handles some things, so nothing we can do here.
You may want to read this blogpost entry https://forum.rehips.com/index.php?topic=9742.0 , if you've been using RulesManager and updating from an older version.
BTW, forgot to add changelog. Here it is.

Thanks for this release...
Thanks for your translation
Does ReHIPS have a trial?
Most of the ReHIPS licensing questions should be covered here https://forum.rehips.com/index.php?topic=9613
Is short words, it has a demo version with the only technical limitation: the number of concurrently running isolated processes is limited with 10.
Ok, Thank you. I will take a look at the thread you referenced. I'm not sure if that is enough processes to isolate for a trial, or not if it isolates vulnerable system processes also.
You will feel the limitation only if you run a multi-process browser in isolation. That will probably push you over the limit. That means Chrome and the new Firefox.
I just booted up short time ago, and loaded Vivaldi browser, not in an isolated environment which was what I preferred. I then got these popups in quick succession. I had seen this happen before with the previous version of ReHIPS v2.2.0, but had never reported it until now.
I use Firefox, and Chrome. I do a lot of research so I usually have both browsers open so I don't have too many tabs open in the same browser. It keeps me from overloading the browser. I may try it, and see if I think it's worth purchasing a license. I'm not sure it would be a good ideal using it with Bouncer.
You can take chrome and firefox out of isolation, if you wish, and run a single-process browser in isolation just to see how it works.
My opinion may be a little heretical, but I think that the anti-exe and application control of ReHIPS is so good, you don't even need the isolation.
I'm testing NoVirusThanks OsArmor right now. I may give ReHIPS a try after i'm done. Thanks!
Hmm ... trying to decide between ReHIPS and Sandboxie on my new laptop.
More familiar with Sandboxie. I haven't used ReHIPS for quite some time so would have to go through the 'learning curve' again.
ReHIPS works much better now than in the early versions. Might be worth a try. You can enable real desktop for all isolated apps, it is a new setting. (If you are a total paranoid, don't enable it.)
I've checked the rehips order page and it's £50 ($ 69) for a 1 year licence. Do the rehips users here think it's worth paying that much every year for this software?
The only price we have set is in USD, that is $49.75. Plus additional taxes, but they depend on region and it's laws, I guess. Conversion to other currencies is managed by selling platfrom, that is share-it. Sometimes I get questions like why prices don't match. Honestly I have no idea, on one hand. On the other hand, you can cycle through currencies and try to choose the most lucrative one
Try the free version, run a single-process browser to get the hang of it, and then decide if it is worth the $$ to you.
Or run the full version in VM. As far as I know, you can do that for free, permanently, using one of the standard VM licences that the dev has provided.
I find it to expensive even in CAD Funds for a year and only one device. I would like to try but not the limited version, but can't justify buying for the 2 PC's I have at that price.
Unfortunately, cost is probably the decider for me also.
I have a couple of lifetime Sandboxie licences, and a paid ReHIPS, but it's a bit steep in South African Rand on an annual basis, especially in a layered set-up, though proponents would argue it's all one would need (besides imaging ) if properly set up.
I guess they are after Enterprise market, rather than personal.
It would be nice if there was some sort of beta-tester or loyalty discount, but it's their decision, of course.
You could use both, sandboxie for browsers and ReHIPS for other
