Upgrade Policy

Every new release of a Joomla extension on this site can be one of the following:

  1. a major release
  2. a minor release
  3. a maintenance release

We use the following scheme to designate the release:


As for updates, each new major release version is a separate product, since we typically add/remove and change features, and often make changes to how the code works. So, each new major version is sold separately from earlier versions.

However, promotional discounts are typically offered for existing customers who have purchased earlier major versions. Each new major version has a release date. We typically use the following guidelines:

  1. If you are an existing customer who purchased an earlier version within 30 days of the release date of the new version, then you are eligible for a FREE update if the cost of the new major release is the same as the previous version. If the cost of the new major release is less than the previous version, you will be given a discount equal to the cost of the previous version.
  2. If you are a previous customer who purchased an earlier version more than 30 days from the release date of the latest version of the software, then you may be eligible for a discount from 20% to 50%. It depends on the promotion. Each promotion has a maximum duration of 30 days from the date of the major release.

Minor and Maintenance releases are not separate from the major releases. Therefore, they are available for FREE to existing customers who purchased the corresponding major release version. Customers are eligible for FREE updates of minor/maintenance releases up to 12 months from their initial purchase date. After your 12 months access to the software is expired, you must purchase the latest version to get access to updates.

A minor release typically constitutes bug fixes, security concerns, or adds simple features that complement existing ones. A maintenance release typically involves adding new translations or correcting spelling errors, which do not really impact functionality.
