If you order lifetime licenses now ($299), then that is correct, they will not come with upgrades forever. I know it's not pleasant, especially after being used to free unlimited, but it's basically asking the impossible to have a lifetime of development, upgrades, security patches, etc. for just one price.So, if I understand this correctly, in the future I'll have to pay for updates for new lifetime licenses? It's not that I don't want to pay for them, but it can become a large cost quickly I think... I currently have two licenses (but this was planned to become four in the near future). So this would mean it would cost me an additional 198 dollar per year just to keep the new licenses running on the latest version?
There's also something else we are considering but it's just a thought at the moment. There's those users who really don't care for support, and almost never open support tickets. Something like a much cheaper one-shot upgrade fee that they can pay at any time to make the license current. I'm the type of customer who doesn't want support, just give me the lowest price upgrade possible. There's other problems with it though, does that mean we block support tickets from them? etc etc.
