I just read in Keyframe Magazine that the upgrade to 8.5 was free, is that true? Cause atm I have 7.5d and would love to be able to upgrade to 8.5 for free :D

I'm not positive on this, but I'll bet that the free upgrade to 8.5 is from an 8.0version or higher. It wouldn't hurt to send a note to someone at :newtek: and see what they have to say though.:D

from 8.0 it was free, but not from 7.5

Yep, I think all the point releases are free - but not the integer releases. :D

i.e. 7.0 -> 7.5 Free

8.0 -> 8.1
8.1 -> 8.2
8.2 -> 8.5

Free Free Free

7.5 -> 8.0 Not Free
8.5 -> 9.0 Not Free
