Question: 

What is the difference between an update and an upgrade? Does my current license include upgrades and updates?

Answer: 

Updates are minor releases that include bug fixes and small enhancements. These releases are indicated by a "small" version number change. For example, Komodo Professional Edition 3.0 to Komodo Professional Edition 3.5 is an update.

Upgrades are major releases that include significant new functionality. These releases are indicated by a "large" version number change. For example, Komodo Professional Edition 3.0 to Komodo IDE 4.0 is an upgrade.
