Yearly Sub /vs/ Lifetime Sub - Whats The Difference?

Besides the obvious, that one you have to pay for yearly and one you pay for once.

How do upgrades work? Do I have to pay for future upgrades for the lifetime version? What about security releases? I assume this is listed on the site somewhere, I just could not locate it.

I think they have done away with the yearly subscription.

For the lifetime licenses, you get a year of updates with your original purchase, then after that you pay $110 a year to stay current if you want to. If you don't want to stay current, you don't need to pay. If you wait more than a year to pay for the updates, the price goes up to $165.


What about major/minor security releases? Are there free patches for those?
