  • Upgrading current license...

    I'm currently running an older version of vBulletin and have no intentions of upgrading to vB 4, or 5, for that matter.

    I just want to make sure I receive any support, maintenance, and/or security fixes for my current version of vB.

    What will be the charge for renewing my current licensed version of vBulletin...if I do not plan to upgrade?

    You cannot - The only way you will get the latest fix's for v3.8 is to upgrade to v4.

      The tables below illustrates the level of support the last 4 "point release" versions.



      Example: Level of support for previous versions when vBulletin 4.0 releases.

      Code:
                       
              Version    Level of Support        
          Current Version    4.0    Full Support        
          V(-1)    3.8    Bug + Security        
          V(-2)    3.7    Security        
          V(-3)    3.6    End of Life
      Example: Level of support for previous versions when vBulletin 4.1 releases.
      Code:
              Version    Level of Support        
          Current Version    4.1    Full Support        
          V(-1)    4.0    Bug + Security        
          V(-2)    3.8    Security        
          V(-3)    3.7    End of Life
      Example: Level of support for previous versions when vBulletin 5.0 releases.
      Code:
              Version    Level of Support        
          Current Version    5.0    Full Support        
          V(-1)    4.5    Bug + Security        
          V(-2)    4.4    Security        
          V(-3)    4.3    End of Life
      Please note, version numbers are for example purposes only.

      and what would be the point in running 3.x.x series if you want fixes and get access to vB 4. You will still need to pay for a version that you claim you do not need. I am sure you will change your mind after the demo and or beta release within this forum.

        All well and good, but you cannot download those updates for v3.8 unless your license is "active", they have already stated they will be supporting v3.8 until 4.2 is released, and they are leaving 6 months inbetween minor updates, which means, even if you renewed your license last week, you STILL wont be able to download the whole amount of v3.8 updates without upgrading to v4.

          Security updates will always be available, however the security updates only cover the latest point release.

            Zach do you mean in this example:

            Version Level of Support
            Current Version 4.0 Full Support
            V(-1) 3.8 Bug + Security
            V(-2) 3.7 Security
            V(-3) 3.6 End of Life
            that only the latest 3.7 version will get security updates?

            If the latest is 3.7.x is 3.7.3, then security updates will not be provided for 3.7.2?

                  I really don't want to start a new thread for this.

                  Can any one say about when the following were introduced?
                  3.8
                  3.7
                  3.6

                      doh! I should have thought of looking in there.

                      Clearly I am not thinking at the moment, thank you for your answer.
