Ability to add ram/benchmark custom requirement to choose the most powerful pc-s

How do we do this?

And what is the plan for the end of the month, will it be leaving BETA on time and going up for purchase? Just curious as our team is really loving render manager and are looking forward to continuing to use it.

This new feature is accessible in the top of the requirements field in the job creation window:

Regarding the BETA period, our window for the release is around the first half of February. Your licenses are going to be extended automatically.

After release, there will be a 30 day trial period available for everybody!
