what is the latest version ( SS4 , SS10 ? ) with Luxology and Effect Manager ?
SS10 was the last V8i release. There will be no more.
About the rendering, I cannot say.

Martinezx, check below:
Products containing the Luxology rendering engine can no longer be distributed after July 31, 2022
Bentley is pleased to announce the final release of MicroStation V8i SELECTseries 10 (SS10) version 08.11.09.931.
Dzięki Marta :) So what it the latest version with luxology ? 919 ? or some other ? I need for some comparision
If you have the old installation file for the 931, it should contain Luxology but it is no more available to download and distribute by support.
This version of MicroStation V8i SS10 is updated to address the following.
It was released two versions of 08.11.09.931 before 31 July 2022 and after.
The version before had the Luxology and it was removed after 31 July 2022.
Only version without Luxology is available now.
Does Bentley not have a legal requirement to provide old installation files to customers? Putting the responsibility of ensuring installers are safe, on customers who have paid a significant amount of money for software, seems somewhat wrong to me. What if their installer corrupts or digitally stored(cloud host etc..) is lost due to a hosting issue, or physical media is destroyed ( e.g. in a fire)?
Yes Barry, Bentley hasn't anymore rights to distribute Luxology. I will refer to the statement:
As of July 31, 2022, we will no longer be authorized to distribute versions of software that include Luxology to any of our users per the terms of our agreement with the third-party vendor. There are no exceptions to this policy.
So does Bentley have any problem if users share their installers with other users, that have a valid license?
