Some of the new features will be released as an update of the basic version and some of them will be released as a new version of the app. Why? We create resources to help the Ionic community succeed but we also try to make a living from this. We invest hundreds of hours creating the templates, the styles, the new features, the documentation, testing everything and that takes a lot of effort and resources. However, when a new version gets released, current buyers will have the opportunity to make the upgrade by just paying the difference between their version and the new one.
