How to Buy
Please Read Carefully
Updates are Free
Manifold licensees may download and install the latest build of their licensed software at no charge. Builds are identified by a build number, reported in the Help - About dialog. If the current build is newer, download and install it. Newer builds fix bugs and add new features.
Different licensing options, different products, or new product generations are not free updates. For example, a Release 8 Personal Edition license does not provide free access to Release 8 Ultimate Edition. Acquiring a Release 8 license does not provide free access to Release 9. When a new product is released, updates for prior generations continue for a limited period of time and then eventually end as development shifts to the new generation. The focus of current development is Manifold Release 9, with new builds issued for 9 on average every two weeks.
