Just got this from pmg
Dear messiahStudio User: Big changes are about to happen for messiahStudio and you. We have been working on a deal with a company that could change the industry, and give you an advantage as a messiahStudio user. We will be able to add more resources, improve the software, and give you a greater user experience; as well as support your projects in interesting ways. This will also mean the future cost of the product and upgrades, may not be solely under our control. You are being offered one chance to save on both current and future versions, before this happens. If you want to lock in your ability to take advantage of the current price savings, these are your last opportunities to do so. Don't say we didn't warn you MESSIAHSTUDIO 5 USERS: Upgrade to version 6, so you are not priced out of the future: $20 http://www.projectmessiah.com/x6/shop_upgradeBF6.html Anyone who is not on version 6 by the time this takes places, will not be able to upgrade, and will have to pay the new prices, as if you were a new user. There will be nothing we can do to help you after that point. MESSIAHSTUDIO 6 USERS: If you want to lock in your future version price, avoid the price increase, and gain the advantages that new users will have, without paying the new user price, convert to a subscription license: You can cancel it at any time, and still run the version you have from that time forward. Your ability to run the software will not expire, only your access to new things from that point on. If you re-subscribe after that, it will be at the new price, so it's to your advantage to maintain it. This is the best deal we can give you as a current user; and soon you'll see why: $40 a year: http://www.projectmessiah.com/x6/shopSUB6.html We're sorry we can't disclose any more information at this time; our plans involve other companies, so we are not at liberty to put out new information, before the appropriate time. Thanks for your understanding. We look forward to sharing with you what's in store for the future.
