Once a year Studiometry is upgraded to a completely new version number. This indicates that Studiometry has been upgraded to a completely new version.
While Oranged Software provides users with regular free updates throughout the year, once a year a completely new version of Studiometry is released. For example, a simple update is moving from Studiometry 5.1.1 to 5.1.2. While an upgrade is moving from Studiometry 4.x to 5.x. You are not required to upgrade to the newest version, you can choose to upgrade based on how the newer version meets your needs.
To upgrade, visit the Studiometry Download webpage at http://www.oranged.net/studiometry/ and download the newest version of Studiometry. Trial this version of Studiometry.

How do version numbers work?
When you purchase a copy of Studiometry you are entitled to free updates for the entire main version number that you purchase. For example, if you purchase Studiometry 8.x, you will receive free updates for Studiometry 8.1, 8.1.1, 8.2, etc.
Once per year we release an optional upgrade that includes a large amount of new features, in this example it would be version 9.x. Existing users have two options of what they can do when a pay-for upgrade is release:
- They can purchase the upgrade for a discounted price and then receive free subsequent updates, such as 9.0.1, 9.1, etc.
- They can continue using 8.x indefinitely and ignore Studiometry 9.x, because they own Studiometry 8.x and the license never expires.
