UpdatesProduct updates are free for a minimum period of 12 months.After this period expires if a major version is released you will be able to extend access to updates by paying a certain fee (10%-40% of the original price.).
so basically your taking the piss out of the fact i dont have loads of money and saying its my fault you have increased the price of your products
You're looking at it wrong. Think of it like this V5 beta is a huge upgrade already from V3, If you already own V3 and V5 never existed and you wanted to hire a developer to add V5 features it would be so much more than 30euros. A lot more. So in a sense you're saving a lot of money AND contributing back to the phpvibe project to keep it going. Honestly think about it.
