Hi John:

It is still an effective tripling or quadrupling of the cost.

I purchased a "non profit" license several years ago for $129.  "Non
commercial, 4 layers, up to 160 sq cm., all functionality enabled."
They converted this to a "standard" license over time.
A license was good for the life of a major version, such as 5 or 6.
When 7 came out, I had to buy a new license for 7, but it was at the
existing customer upgrade price, which was $69.

So $129 initially, then $69 every two or three years or so, as new major
versions came out.
Now they want $100 per year.
