I just took a look on the Phase One website, and it's real alright. A $99 upgrade for all existing C1 customers, it seems. FWIW, the interface looks like not much has changed. Odd that this was released without any fanfare or announcements to date. I didn't get anything direct from Phase, get a RSS message from Capture Integration, or see a previous mention from anybody with a formal connection here on LL. Did the Lightroom public beta cause them to shove it out the door sooner than dealers were expecting? I'm sure the lessons from the early days of v4 taught them to not rush things too much, but the timing sure seems curious.
Late October was the slated release timeframe as far back as early September.
Capture Integration failed you on the RSS feed :-). I'll be posting a note in a few minutes.
Curious about the listed $99 upgrade fee for current Pro users. I am on CO Pro v3.xx and was supposed to be eligible for five free upgrades according to PhaseOne.
All 3 Pro keys (to the best of my knowledge) were sold with TWO free upgrades. Version 4.5 and Version 5 would be those two free upgrades. Any "update" (e.g. 3.7.6 --? 3.7.7 or 4.5.3 --> 4.6.0) were not counted. Unlike most companies you can log onto phaseone.com and see (my account > license management) exactly what licenses you've registered and what upgrade privileges go with them.
Not true. Only 4.5 counted as an upgrade, license wise for the Pro.
