    66'''To:''' 6.0 (and higher)

     8'''Notes:''' 
     9 
     10'''1.''' All software needs to be licensed. There is an [http://get.boonex.com/Dolphin-v.6.0-Free ad based] version that links cannot be removed from - licenses or not. There is an [http://get.boonex.com/Dolphin-v.6.0-AdFree ad free] version that has ads, but with this version you can purchase licenses that remove links or ads.  
     11 
     12Thus, to be able to use Dolphin 6.0 you need to have a license. It's free and you can get free licenses by registering at [http://www.boonex.com/unity Unity]. The upgrade from 5.6 to 6.0 will return all the !BoonEx references on your website. If you do not want !BoonEx links on your site, you can acquire [https://www.boonex.com/payment.php?product=Dolphin Ad free licenses]. 
     13 
     14'''2.''' If you are going to use Ray you will need to install either the [http://get.boonex.com/Dolphin-v.6.0-AdFree Ad free] or [http://get.boonex.com/Dolphin-v.6.0-Free free (ad based)] package according to your needs. The free package contains the integrated free Ray package which has !BoonEx Ads in all Ray widgets. You may generate free licenses at Unity to register these. If you are going to use Ray widgets without !BoonEx Ads (means to order ad free licenses for Ray widgets) you need to install and use the Ad free Dolphin package.
