    • I wondering is WBB is doing that to charge all the license holders with a fee. If I remember right going to a new version means you have to pay to going from 4.1 to 4.2 would be free, but going from 4.2 to 5.0 would mean fees to all license holders. From what I have seen I don't know if enough is being done to qualify a full version upgrade.

      Maybe @dtdesign could shred some light into this

      You pay the major releases 4.0, 4.1, 4.2,... 5.0. The minor releases (stability releases) 4.0.x, 4.1.x, 4.2.x,... are free.

      @Allan we will be going from 4.1 to 5, there will be no 4.2 (as far as I know), and you can see a list of some added features here Unofficial WCF 2.2 and WBB 4.2 feature list

      dtdesign mentioned somewhere that the upgrade fee will be nominal, about the same as going from 4.0 to 4.1. I forget what the exact amount is, but it isn't huge.

      X.y.z and x.Y.z are both major releases, the X simply denotes the generation. A version qualifies as a new generation if it is either a rewrite or they have been too many fundamental changes and improvements that it would no longer qualify as a Y release. Simple as that, 4.0 and 4.1 are more similar than 4.1 and 5.0.
