When we started with Avastar in 2011, we promised to give free infinite support. But this turned out to become a huge burden, because the increasing number of customers also increases our support activities.

We can no longer keep up with this free forever model. But we also do not want to break our word, so we decided for a compromise: Since November-2014 we split up our product into 2 distributions with different licensing models.

Avastar-1 (Infinite support)

If you purchased Avastar before 14-nov-2014 then you have an Avastar-1 distribution. You’ve been with us for a long time. We always promised that you never have to pay anything for bug fixes and adjustments necessary because of changes in Blender.

Avastar-2 (Annual renewal)

If you purchased Avastar on or after 14-nov-2014 then you have an Avastar-2 distribution. You will receive all product updates and bug fixes until one year after purchase. You can renew your license on a yearly base.

Since Avastar-1.7 this Tool is no longer developped, but it is still maintained. So no new features will be added. From now on we only do bug fix releases and we take care to keep Avastar-1 running on future Blender versions as long as this is feasible.

Avastar-2 has been started as a copy of Avastar-1. But since Avastar-1 has gone to maintenance mode, now Avastar-2 is developed separately and it has already started to diverge from the Avastar-1 distribution.

Although Avastar-1 will not get new features, you will always keep a working and up to date Addon without need to pay a single penny extra for future maintenance and bug fixes.

Avastar-2 is in active delopment and it gets all new developed features. But this comes with the price of annual license renewal. We believe this is a fair way to help us keeping up with future development.
