are the upgrades for rayfire free? like if i were to get rayfire for max 2010, when max 2011 comes out, is it a free upgrade? i've played with an older version of the demo a bunch, and love this program. unfortunately theres no purpose of getting it for where i work, so it would just be a fun toy for me at home!

Awesome update Mir! Thanks again for such a wicked tool!

very cool.

And yes, all updates are for free.
Even customers of old 1.34 which were released more then year ago can get new version for free, including all supported max versions. So, you shouldn't worry about that. :)
