What is the upgrade policy?
Free upgrades to the SwordSearcher program file are made available for point releases. (See above-right.) For example, if you have version 6.0 or 6.1, you can download a free update to version 6.2 that will update the program file adding program features and fixing bugs. Free program file updates do not include additions to the module library. To get new library modules, you need a full Deluxe edition upgrade.
Current customers of SwordSearcher 5 and SwordSearcher 6 qualify for a significant discount on new Deluxe Edition upgrades (DVD or download); see above-left.
Please note that the SwordSearcher Deluxe library is unified. Instead of charging for each new library resource individually, the entire library is included for one price.
If I order the upgrade, does it come with everything added since my Deluxe version?
Yes. Upgrades always get you the latest, full version with the complete library, regardless of which version you are upgrading from.
Is a free program upgrade available to version 7.0?
Sorry, no. Free program file updates are only available for point releases. Please consider purchasing SwordSearcher 7 at the upgrade price.
