    Last year I bought Version 5 and then a couple of months later you released Version 6.

    If I upgrade to Version 6 now, are you going to release version 7 in a couple of months?

      Yes, Exactly right. When you upgrade a few months later they will ask you to upgrade again.

    I noticed support for DirectX remains at 9.0c ( i.e. no support for DX10 or even 11 ) and openGL remains at 2.1 ( i.e. no support for 3 or 4).
    If these features would have been added I would have definitely upgraded but as is other improvements are too minor for me to even consider upgrading.

    Is there any chance that it will be added to vmware fusion 7 ? Parallels as of version 9 does at least support dx10.
