Thanks Gary! It seems that if you "re-buy" a previously bought software you have nothing to pay (hopefully)! So I will wait for the update!

Gary Lasker (gary-lasker) wrote :

Indeed, you will definitely not have to pay again. :) The button will be to "Reinstall", rather than "Buy", for these items.

We will make the update available as quickly as we can. Thank you again!
