Yes, this is what you can now find on the order page, but it is 
essentially the same as what I suggested above. You can find the 
official prices at:
and online ordering buttons at:

That would not work because you can buy an ArtWorks 2.6 upgrade 
without AWRender 2, although I have not provided any online ordering 
buttons. An upgrade without AWRender 2 is cheaper and, of course, you 
can still get later upgrades at the same price as everyone else. 
However, AWRender 2 is probably the most useful thing in the whole 
bundle, so it is more likely that someone might want AWRender 2 but 
not ArtWorks 2.6 than vice versa.

This is the reason why I have announced from the start that AWRender 2 
might become a free download at some stage, so anyone who fears he 
might be unhappy about that can decide to not pay and wait. But then, 
I made a similar announcement about Gimp-Print two years ago and that 
is still not a free download...

Yes, it is 60 Pounds from 2.4, 80 Pounds from 2.3, 90 Pounds from 2.2 
and 100 Pounds from 2.0/2.1.
