Making Sense of Licenses

I'm rather concerned about this. The Omega bundle did not include a
year of updates, and if anyone told you it did, they were misinformed,
and giving you incorrect advice. Can you point to where this
information was provided?
I've checked your license entitlement, and your upgrade was to the
Gold bundle, with a very substantial discount applied due to the free
platforms you earned during the Summer Academy. The Gold bundle does
not carry an extended upgrade entitlement, only the Complete license
offers this. Your upgrade was quite close to the cut off date for
getting LiveCode 5 free however. If you email me in support directly
we might come to some kind of arrangement.
I'd like to re-iterate however, that we certainly never promised a
year of updates with the Omega bundle. The only license type we sell
that carries a year of updates is the Complete license.
