Update: no change to the version's first number: 7.5.4.0 to 7.5.5.0 (free)

Upgrade: 7.5.5.0 to 8.0.2.1 ($)

All we know about 8 is that it is being developed on a newer platform than 7 so that the Mac version can run on the Mac OS as a native application, just as does the Windows version.

I predict it will be released by November. And, one year, I may be right.

I think I have the paid version (7.5.5.0) I remember it was very very low priced though.

About two years. RM7 was first released 2014-12-25 so, by this time in 2016, I was expecting RM8 to be out the following Christmas. Unfortunately or otherwise, other things got in the way, such as the demise of TMG and Ancestry dropping FTM to which the RM developers responded with new import processes and TreeShare. Undoubtedly, the migration to a new development platform likely went on the back burner.
