ESRI Developer Network now offers optional ArcInfo and ArcEditor licenses

ArcView was available as an option for EDN, but now ArcInfo and ArcEditor are now available (at added cost) to the EDN subscriber. I’m not sure at all why they never offered ArcInfo and ArcEditor as how the heck could a developer load data into ArcSDE without either license (beyond the command line tools).

What I’d like to see is a “EDN Universal” subscription where all ArcGIS Desktop licenses and extensions are included in addition to the server tools. That way any developer of desktop solutions can have access to the licenses. Of course this will cost more, but I think very helpful to the ESRI developer community.
