The SPEDAS 2.00 IDL source code release can be downloaded from the 
spedas.org web site:

The IDL source code release requires an IDL license.  In a few weeks, we 
expect to release a set of
SPEDAS 2.00 executable files, which use the IDL Virtual Machine to allow 
access to the SPEDAS Graphical
User Interface, with no IDL license required.  That release is pending, 
while we work through the process
of renewing our IDL "Right to Distribute" agreement which is required 
for us to build the executable files.
In the meantime, users without IDL licenses can download executables 
based on a SPEDAS 2.00 beta
release,  from January 2017.  Please visit the spedas.org Downloads and 
Installation link mentioned above
for download and installation instructions.

We are grateful to NASA Headquarters for their support of the SPEDAS 
development effort.
