I'm sold on the value of upgrading my LW 9.6 to 11. Does anyone know what the policy is if I upgrade from 9.6 to 10.1 now? Will I have to pay again when 11 ships? Or will the upgrade be free.

It would be nice, as a 9.6 owner to upgrade to LW10 today and begin getting familiar with features like VPR prior to getting the LW 11 upgrade.

Seems like this would be a good time to "capture" owners of previous versions of the software, if indeed they can upgrade to the current version and get the 11 upgrade free when it ships. Maxon did this recently with the upgrade from v. 12 to 13.

I think you can upgrade to 10 now and get 11 free. What you can't do is get in on the pre-release of 11 from 9.x. At least that's what I draw from a couple of items on this page:

It's my understanding that, at the moment, upgrading from LW9.6 to LW11 will cost you $695 and I think it is probably likely that anyone buying LW10.1 now would of course get LW11 once it ships.

Dang - Steve beat me by seconds! :p
