Emerald 2.1 is the current release. Emerald 2.2 is available for those
who need features from it, and 2.5 is going into its second reound of
closed beta testing.

RadiusNT is a core component of Emerald. The Emerald license
covers the usage of it when you buy Emerald. RadiusNT is NOT

make it avaialable w.out emerald as well.

to do some database upkeep to get it to work, but it should
be feasible.
