Why are there preview features?

GrandTotal is usually released every 2 years as a new version. So for new features, the users have to wait until the paid upgrade is released. This way, some of the new functions can be used earlier.

What does it cost?

Using it is free until the next major version is released. After this you may purchase the upgrade to the new version in order to continue using the features.

How do I activate these features?
