    Being the OCD/AR type that I am, I'll probably export all the settings and do a clean install. But that's just me. Heck, re-creating the cameras, while a lot more work, isn't all that bad a job either.

    Can't wait to see it. There's so much in the current version which I do not even use, such as profiles, schedules, inputs, macros, webcast, etc.

    If you can go by this splash screen, the cost is only going up $10 for full version.....still VERY affordable ! This isn't nothing official though.

    LOL, Sorry I have to jump off topic. I had to chuckle with the hotbed of debate created by announcing an update! I too work in IT and have worked on/used every incarnation of Windows since the beginning. Every time....and I do mean every time an update is pushed out there are negatives and positives. Fact is people hate change. There is no way to please everyone but to call one of the best OS's released since XP (the best IMO) junk, is indeed a little harsh. I am not by any stretch bashing any ones opinion. I work with a woman that LOVES LOVES LOVES Vista and still uses it today.

    Back on topic. I can't wait to install BI v5 and give it a whirl!

    Does anyone remember if there was a new Android app for BI version 4 or the old one worked? I am trying to figure out if I will have to pay for a new Android app when BI v5 is out.

    Hello everyone.
    So my BI5 upgrade options are to purchase the BI4 support for $30 or wait and buy for $70 ?

    in the past the upgrade was half price. The message implied there will be some sort of discount.
    Regardless the upgrade to 5 is a no brainer. The cheapest method is the 30 dollar support plan.

    At this risk of another foot-in-mouth episode, I will add that I had this same question a few months ago and emailed BI support asking if the current BI mobile app would work across major revisions (V4 => V5) and was told it would.

    Here is the response directly from BI support:

    The app will be continuously updated to always work best with the current
    release and that does include major upgrades.

    No new app purchases

    Thanks
