What about version updates and upgrades?
- “Update” a version of the 3ivx-Software that incorporates bug fixes or modifications to maintain the functions, capabilities, and performance of the 3ivx-Software, but which may not contain any additional functionality.
- “Upgrade” means a version of the 3ivx-Software that incorporates new features or functions for which 3ivx charges a separate license fee, and which is designated by 3ivx as an upgrade or a new release.
3ivx Update Policy allows all minor updates to the version you purchased to be provided to you free for download from Your Download Area. We also provide the first major upgrade free to our customers, as well as any minor updates to that version. The second major upgrade, if accepted by a 3ivx user, will incur an Upgrade Fee.
Minor updates are usually denoted by an increment in the third digit of the version number and major upgrades are show in the first or second place holders. For example 5.0 was a major upgrade from 4.5.1, whilst 5.0.4 is a minor update to the 5.0 upgrade.
So, in practical terms, if you purchased 3ivx D4 4.5, then you would have recieved complimentary updates to 4.5.2 for free, and the upgrade to 3ivx MPEG-4 5.0 for free, as well as any minor updates that will be made to 5.0, such as the recent 5.0.4 update. The next major upgrade, likely to be version 6.0 later this year would incur an Upgrade Fee.
