    Here is the official explanation

    Free Upgrade = Updates as long as your current license is active.
    $175 Upgrade = Updates as long as 4.0 is being produced and supported.

    During this transition period, there are two licenses. The original vBulletin 3.X license and a new license we are calling vBulletin 4.0. The license is independent of what version you are actually running.

    When you purchase a Suite or Forum upgrade, you are converting your terms to the newer 4.0 License and pricing options presented.

    Software Versions
    Under your previous vBulletin 3.X license, you were allowed all updates while the license was active. You could renew that active status with a separate purchase.

    Under the terms of your active 3.X license, you can upgrade to vBulletin 4.X for free. When that license expires, you must upgrade to a 4.0 license to continue receiving updates. If you do not upgrade your owned license, you can continue using the latest version accessible to you indefinitely but we are no longer accepting renewals under the older license. At that point, you would decide to upgrade to the 4.0 license or wait to upgrade until the 5.X license. __________________
