2. Astah SysML and GSN are still available

You can still use Astah SysML and Astah GSN with Faculty Site License.
However, we recommend you switch to Astah System Safety to simplify the toolset you use since it includes the most functionalities that Astah SysML and GSN have.
You will be able to transfer your current data from Astah SysML and GSN to Astah System Safety after December 9th, 2021.
