New SpecFlow+ Renewal Policy

A number of customers have contacted us in the past asking for option to renew their support period for SpecFlow+ so they can upgrade to a newer version. Until now, the only official option in this case was to purchase a new license at full cost.

This seems unfair on those users who want to keep up-to-date with the latest release and extend their support period each year. We have therefore decided to offer 1-year extensions to the SpecFlow+ support period for 50% of the cost of a new license. Extensions will be applied from the last day of the previous support period. For example, if your support period ends on 1 September 2017, the support period will be extended to 1 September 2018 (irrespective of the date on which you renew).

We are also giving all previous SpecFlow+ customers the option of renewing their SpecFlow+ licenses at the same price point, even if the upgrade period has already ended. In this case, the 1-year extension will begin from the date the renewal is purchased (instead of from the end of your last support period). This offer is only valid until the end of August 2017. If you are an existing SpecFlow+ customer and want to renew your license and support period, please visit this page and provide us with as much information on your licenses as possible. We will verify that you are a past customer and send you a payment link. If you have any questions, you can also contact us directly at support [at] specflow.org.
