SMART Utility 1.0 was released June 15, 2007. In the 9 years since then, every update was free. However, the time has come to charge an update price. Version 4.0 will be a significant rewrite with large additional features. This includes a GUI overhaul.
Version 4.0 will be released in approximately six months. Pricing has not been set for version 4.0, but it is only fair to announce ahead of time that the the update will not be free. However, any purchase after today (May 1st, 2016) will not be charged an update fee.
