Finally, we have built & uploaded the ViEmu/VS2010 2.5.6, the first official release of ViEmu for Visual Studio 2010. We have also updated the web site to cover the new version.
The customer area now also shows a button to renew support for your existing license(s). If you have several ViEmu products, you will be offered to upgrade them all together. We will offer partial upgrades (upgrading only a few of them) in a couple of weeks, please bear with us meanwhile. If you need a temporary license to keep on using ViEmu meanwhile, just let us know and we will send one your way.
The licensing and pricing policy should be simple to understand: licensing is common for ViEmu/VS “Classic” and ViEmu/VS 2010, the same license is valid for both. Renewing support for one of the ViEmus is $29, no matter which of them (ViEmu/VS, ViEmu/SQL and ViEmu/W&O). If you renew support for ViEmu/VS, you will then get 1 full year of free upgrades for both the “Classic” and the 2010 version. If you are renewing ViEmu packs (VS+SQL, VS+W&O, or the full 3-ViEmu pack), renewing each additional SKU is just $10. Thus, renewing the DBPro pack is $39, and renewing the Enterprise pack is $49. Pack-discount pricing is applied no matter if you purchased the products at the same time, or years apart. If you are renewing multiple license, it’s just a matter of multiplying the basic price – there is no volume discount for multi-license support renewals.
We hope this will be seen as great value for money. But we’re always willing to listen, let us know if something doesn’t click for you!

A quick summary of what this version doesn’t cover: compatibility with other 3rd-party extensions, performance for bulk editing actions like :%s, and a couple of user settings. We will address these in the next few weeks too.
As always, we hope you enjoy this, and let us know what you think!
