Note on Future Upgrade Policy
Starting next year, Autodesk will make 2 significant changes to their upgrade policy:
• Only 6 versions back remain upgradeable
• Only versions 2008 and newer will remain upgradeable. Owners of software from before 2008 who want the current version will need to purchase new licenses. Therefore, anybody with Autodesk licenses from 2007 and earlier, should consider of upgrading to the current version to maintain the existing 30% discount.
• All upgrades will have the same price
• Currently licenses 1-3 versions old pay 50% of the new license price for an upgrade. Next year that will go up to 70%, the same price as the 3-6 version old pricing. Therefore, anybody with Autodesk license versions 2012, 11, or 10 should consider upgrading to the current version to maintain the existing 50% discount.
