Thinking Out Loud

Upcoming Changes to the DevExpress ASP.NET Subscription

We are days away from the official release of v17.1. As part of this update, we've made a series of changes to our product SKUs...one involves our Universal Subscription and the following describes changes we'll make to our ASP.NET Subscription.

Before I start, let me emphatically state the following: If you are an active ASP.NET Subscriber, you will not experience a price increase. Your renewal costs will remain the same. If you are happy with our ASP.NET Subscription, you can continue to renew it at the price point you've come to expect from DevExpress - $399.99.

You may be asking yourself what will change if renewal pricing will not....Well, here is a summary of what you can expect once we ship v17.1.

New ASP.NET Bootstrap Controls and MVC Wrappers

If you own an active ASP.NET Subscription at the time of official launch (v17.1), you’ll automatically receive our new ASP.NET Bootstrap Controls and HTML5 MVC Wrappers (wrappers around our DevExtreme UI widgets), free of charge. Whether you choose to use these new product lines is entirely up to you of course...but as long as you maintain/renew your ASP.NET subscription, we'll make them available to you. And once again, ASP.NET Subscription renewal costs will remain the same for existing (active) subscribers. 

The New DevExpress ASP.NET Subscription will include DevExtreme

For those of you considering a move to client-side web development, you’ll be happy to know that with v17.1, we’ll update our ASP.NET Subscription’s product mix to include DevExtreme – our HTML5-JavaScript UI widget library.

Since this is a new addition to the subscription and since it adds substantial value to the product, we’ll increase the price of our "new" ASP.NET Subscription to $999.99. Needless to say, existing customers will not be left out in the cold... 
If you’d like to get your hands on DevExtreme (HTML5-JavaScript widgets), you can upgrade your existing ASP.NET Subscription to our "new" ASP.NET Subscription for only $100.00.  When you upgrade, your subscription’s renewal date will not be modified but the renewal price will be increased from $399.99 to $449.99.

This last point is important - the $100 upgrade will give you immediate access to DevExtreme. If you renewal date is X, it will remain X and once your subscription expires, you will be prompted to renew at the new price point of $449.99 (as all of you know, renewals are entirely voluntary and do not affect product use rights to tools you've licensed in the past). 

Upgrade Your Subscription to DevExpress Universal

If you’ve considered upgrading your ASP.NET Subscription to DevExpress Universal in the past, but have hesitated due to pricing concerns, I have some good news for you. Based on your organization’s purchase and licensing history, I've instructed our Client Services Team to offer preferential pricing to those wishing to acquire our Universal Subscription by May 31, 2017. If this option is of interest, please do contact us so we can put together the best possible offer for your company. 

We are here and ready to help - please do call us should you have any questions about our ASP.NET Subscription in the post v17.1 world. DevExpress Client Services can be reached via email at clientservices@devexpress.com or by phone at +1 (818) 844 3383.

If i don't pay the extra 100$ now, i will still have DevExtreme with my next renewal.  Or it will be 2 distrinct packages : ASP.NET with/without DevExtreme and i'll stay with the original package until i pay the 100$ to upgrade. I'm i right ?

@Dominic - you will not have a license to our HTML5-JavaScript widgets (DevExtreme). This will require a $100 upgrade. Please email clientservices@devexpress.com and our team will be happy to review your account.

Sweet, I'm actually really excited to see DevExtreme included in the larger ASP.Net suite, that makes more sense to me. Now to go save up the cash...
