Interesting note: The upgrade eligibility policy has changed from ‘last three versions’ to ‘any prior version’. That’s a move back to the old days, and probably a good incentive to upgrade. There’s also a new ‘upgrade program’, which is NOT the same thing; it’s an annual upgrade fee of $99 to stay up-to-date on Corel Draw. But first, you have to buy the current version, so that upgrade product is the first step to buying into the upgrade program.
