Is my old license valid for 6109R?

Short answer: No, sorry!

If you - at any point - bought a license for Aventurin{e}, then this existing license is still valid for and usable with all Aventurin{e} versions up to and including Aventurin{e} 6108R.

But starting with Aventurin{e} 6109R we introduced a new licensing format.

It wasn't an easy decision to make, but please understand that (in the past) we honored existing licenses for a total of 12 years. If you were an Aventurin{e} early adopter and got aboard in 2006, then you were able to use the same license through four different generations of Aventurin{e} and can still use it on 6108R until it's EOL at the end of 2019. That's quite a run for the money, isn't it? On the other hand: The development of the new Aventurin{e} 6109R took almost two years if we also count our brief explorational detours into the land of LXC/LXD.

Of course we do realize the investment you may have made into Aventurin{e} in the past, so we do offer a 50% discount on Aventurin{e} 6109R licenses for existing Aventurin{e} customers. This discount applies for as many 6109R licenses as you previously had Aventurin{e} 6108R (or older) licenses. So if you previously had two 6108R licenses, then you can get two new Aventurin{e} 6109R license for the price of one.

Please ask for your discount coupon prior to ordering in the shop and we get you sorted ASAP.
