When upgrading your Plato editor to version 21.11, the release of November 2021, you will receive an 'ArtPro+ Layout 21' license instead of a Plato 21 license.
When upgrading your PowerLayout to version 22.03, the release of March 2022, you will receive an 'ArtPro+ Layout 22' license instead of a PowerLayout 22 license.
The new 'ArtPro+ Layout' license will allow you to start up Plato 18.1 or higher (including version 21.11), PowerLayout 22.03 or higher as well as the ArtPro+ Layout edition.
Plato 18.0 or older and PowerLayout 21.11 or older will not be able to start up with an ArtPro+ Layout license. These older versions still require a Plato or PowerLayout license.
You will also not be able to start up any version of Plato or PowerLayout using an ArtPro+ Layout Named User Subscription license.
Additionally note that an 'ArtPro+ Advanced' edition license will also not allow you to start up Plato or PowerLayout.
Some additional information on the 21.11 introduced ArtPro+ Layout edition and its features can be found on the online documentation pages: https://docs.esko.com/docs/en-us/artproplus/21.11/userguide/home.html#en-us/common/app/concept/co_app_licensing.html
