IMA 2020 license
« on: March 18, 2020, 11:36:08 AM »
Hi, Mario,
I have a question about the license.

Buy IMA 2019 in September 2019.
Can I upgrade to IMA 2020 free of charge when it becomes available?
I don't know when this new version will be out, can I use it while Imatch 2020?

Thank you

IMatch Anywhere and IMatch are separate products, with different release cycles.

The latest version of IMatch Anywhere includes a matching version of IMatch 2019.
You cannot upgrade from IMatch Anywhere to IMatch. Different products.

If you have purchased a discounted IMatch Anywhere PLUS 2019 license with IMatch 2019: The included IMatch version is tied to your Plus license.

When IMatch Anywhere 2020 is released, it will again include a matching IMatch 2020 license.
There is no release date for IMatch Anywhere 2020 yet.
A compatibility update of IMatch Anywhere was shipped for users who have separate IMatch and IMatch Anywhere licenses. This allows them to upgrade their IMatch license and download the compatible IMatch Anywhere version.

For IMatch Anywhere itself and IMatch Anywhere Plus (including IMatch), the latest version is 2019

The release cycle for IMatch Anywhere is slower than for IMatch.
The majority of IMatch Anywhere customers are companies and institutes, and they prefer a much slower ESR-type release cycle.
More stability, less updates, less re-training their employees.
