I'm interested in buying Lumion but...worried that a major update will occur soon, and I will have missed this.  Any idea how long one can keep getting the upgrades before you willl have to buy it again?  Note:  Aware there have been at least two major upgrades so thinking I'd better levae it until a major version comes out.

Reading something on the forum you'll see that at the end of the year there will be the upgrade to version 2.
You don't have to buy it again, you just need to upgrade it, like any other 3d application.
If you're happy with the latest version you can simply do not upgrade to version 2.0.

With the latest release you can choose which plugin you want to buy, without spending double the money of the standard edition, so fair choice...

Its up to you, but I think ( definitively not sure about that ) that for 2.0 there will a third more expensive edition of the software than the other two, since the upgrade is quite big...

Many thanks for this clarification.  I do a bit more trial work and likely to purchase - soonish.

Depends on which version but it's safe to say it will cost 1/3rd of the new price.
