To take advantage of the latest capabilities in Altium Designer, it is advised to upgrade to the latest version. Many great new features and technologies have been developed and added along the way since these previous versions of the software, as well as a myriad of enhancements to existing features, bug fixes and implementation of ideas sourced from members of the AltiumLive community. And when you do upgrade to the latest release of Altium Designer, it's highly recommended to purchase Altium Subscription for each license too. Being on subscription opens the door to a number of additional attractions, not least the ability to stay current with the software – being able to install new updates and access features and functionality as soon as they leave development.
