You can use this free version even for commercial purposes. To use all functions of the software, you must purchase a UIC license from the Firkafilm Studio, see details. Before downloading, please read License first. YOU MUST ACCEPT THE TERMS OF THE LICENSE IF YOU ARE USING THE SOFTWARE.
About the version numbering: from the year 2018 onwards, the program version number contains the last two digits of the year. A letter from the (English) alphabet follows it, which represents the month of the release, i.e. “A” for January, “B” for February, and so on. In previous releases the version contained a serial number in a “version.subversion” format. The last release used this old versioning style was 5.0 in 2017.
Now Firka has experimental language support for French, German, (American) Spanish and Japanese languages. These are mostly machine translated then manually corrected versions, and are subjects of review and improvement. We also apologize for the translation mistakes. If you would like to help with making language translations, please contact us.
