    Acorn - My currently active Xara software: XDPX (current, v15, v12 & 11 (64-bit)), unserviced XWD Premium 15 & 12, XPGD10, X3D7; lots of licences back through time (to CC's Artworks). If your Post identifies a Xara software fault, please raise it directly with Magix --> support2.magix.com.

    @scucca. I was confused as well, but finally got my head around the fact that itís an update, and NOT a new version. Just a few fixes. Was able to update WD and Graphic designer. By calling this a new number, youíre led to believe this is a whole new version. Itís Xara marketing only. The only time you should pay is when your yearly sub runs out. Download a trial next time before your anniversary date, or just update yearly but paying the sub.
    Most programs indicate new updates by same version number. Ie- v16.xxxx. Not Xara. They give it a whole new number, with a new splash picture.
    I think next time Iíll just buy a newer version, v17 on my anniversary. The improvements are too small to pay three times per year.
    ....and the Cloud. Xara continue to push it. Itís unpopular, and is a solution for corporate, and a platform for collaboration only.
    .. check the number of posts on the Xara Cloud category compared to the rest.
    Xara does offer an explanation to all of this in the pinned updates.

    They've acquired me. I'm tired of Magix's machinations - this trickery just arrived...

    Worst thing Xara ever did imo. Affinity Photo and Designer are 50% off at the moment. Using them is like jumping forward into the 21st century.
