Currently there are no plans to go back to the .0 and .5 release scheme.
Interesting… So we are headed into a totally different structural direction… not just licensing… but patches and updates to? Is that what I’m understanding?
Is Steinberg aiming to patch things more frequently so there is more incentive to login every 30 days and keep people engaged?
I’m also confused…does this mean more or less frequent updates / new versions?
More and free updates.
SB need the revenue stream for paid upgrades……
I’m guessing there is going to be more of a constant and maintained pipelines between the developers and the end users, to make it more akin to Adobe updates or, these pipeline plugins like Arcade where new content is constantly being added.
Because, if you’re going to be having people connecting all the time… might as well pipelines them some content and new features. And apart from going dongless, a lot of users have always asked for a more constant and fluid update pacing.
For me it seems obvious, the .5 updates did cost only the half. So one year full price upgrade, the next half price upgrade → now each year full price upgrade… understandable but…
