The first version of Sublime Text 2 was available to registered users on September 17, 2010
, with the most recent build being on September 18, 2012. 2 years of continuous updates is a massive amount. In reality, counting should start from January 18, 2008, as everyone who purchased then received updates until September 2012, four and a half years later.
You are the only one with the numbers but I would suspect the vast majority of your registered users came within the last year and a half. Extended updates for original users is one thing but it seems like you are gouging newer users. $30 upgrade for a $59 piece of software purchased within the last year is hard to swallow. Perhaps you should clarify the upgrade pricing with dates ranges for your users.
IMHO, the main mistake of jps was to not publish a stable build way before...
If it had published a stable build 2.0 back in 2011, and add a few minor build after, no one would complain today.
I bought my license early 2011, 2 years ago, and use ST2 exclusively since, so 30$ now for all the works put in ST look like a bargain for me.
Currently ST3 is in BETA stage with no stable build release date, which could be, if jps follow the same path as ST2, in a very long time.
