The last paragraph states:

"Finally, all legacy licenses (of Personal and Professional types) will continue receiving all feature releases free of charge, just as they do now."

Does this mean that if I buy the Personal/Professional license right now (before you switch to the new licensing method) I'll have access to all feature releases free of charge for all time or just the first year?

It's the former.

Thank you for the clarification, I might as well buy it now then :)

I bought two licences a year ago since you warned  us with large lead time of the forthcoming change.
You really deserved our trust. Thanks Alex!

I am a little confused.

So people like me who bought Bvckup 2 before year 2018 will get feature releases free of charge forever right?

The only thing we need to pay for with a small fee is maintenance updates right?

Also if I upgrade to Professional right now will get maintenance updates free forever after paying for the Professional upgrade ?

Correct.

No, this will only apply to holders of new licenses - Basic, Pro, Server - and these aren't live yet.

Still a little confused sorry.

So maintenance updates will be free for previous account licenses ?  

Alex Pankratov :

Correct.

To be more precise - both maintenance and feature updates will be free for holders of legacy license types (Personal and Professional), just as they are now.

Your license doesn't get converted to a new Pro. See "Status of existing licenses" in this post - https://bvckup2.com/support/forum/topic/1206

But it also remains a subject to its original licensing terms - it can only be used for backing up personal, non-work related data on your personal, home computer. If your usage no longer conforms to these restrictions, you must stop using Personal and switch to a (new) Pro license.

Makes sense?
