Hi, i like the progeam and consider buying it. Is the license valid for upcoming releases? Or will i have to purchase/upgrade for future versions, like version 5 in the future?
You pay a discounted rate for major version upgrades (v4 -> v5) but the minor updates (4.1 -> 4.2) and bug fixes (4.1.11 -> 4.1.12) are free.
I can't say anything about the future but when they release v4 people who had bought v3 in the previous two years were given free upgrades.
@arismac: That is correct. Typically we charge for the major releases (with discounts for existing customers, where applicable), with minor updates being free.
1Password 3/4 for Mac was exceptional, primarily because of the transition to the Mac App Store (which does not have an option for 'upgrade' pricing for existing customers).
Also, I can tell you that the next major release is, at this time, planned to be a paid upgrade. But if that changes, well...I don't think anyone will mind.
