We have good news for our commercial desktop IDE customers. We are giving the commercial version of our desktop IDE a new name and some great new features, including support for the RStudio Professional Drivers, at no additional cost to you.

As part of this release, we are renaming RStudio Commercial Desktop License to RStudio Desktop Pro. Existing Commercial Desktop customers will be migrated as part of their next renewal. However, if you would like to migrate to the new release before then, or have any questions, please contact your RStudio Customer Success representative for more information.

Updates for Users

As with the current Commercial Desktop License offering, RStudio Desktop Pro has all the great features of the RStudio Desktop Open Source Edition, plus a commercial license for organizations not able to use AGPL software, and access to priority support.

Beyond that, RStudio Desktop Pro also provides:

RStudio professional products are designed to work together. For example, RStudio Desktop Pro will use the same professional drivers as RStudio Server Pro and RStudio Connect, ensuring a consistent user experience across platforms. We’d love to get your input on what you’d like to see in the future, to better integrate RStudio Desktop Pro with our other professional products. Please email sales@rstudio.com with your feedback.
