As some have figured out, there are new license key types coming soon™ for Unraid OS. We are still working on minor details but here is what we have planned.
We are going to introduce two new keys:
Starter - supports up to 4 devices. This will be offered at a lower price than today's Basic key.
Unleashed - supports unlimited number of devices. This will be offered at about the same price as today's Plus key.
These two new keys provide for free Unraid OS updates for one year following activation. After a year you have the option of extending the key for another year of updates for a fraction of the cost of the original key. If you choose not to extend, you can still run any version of Unraid OS released prior to your renewal date, back to version 6.12.8.
Simultaneous with introducing these two key types, we will no longer offer Basic and Plus keys; but, Pro keys (with unlimited devices and Unraid OS updates for life) will still be offered. We might change the name of the key from Pro to Lifetime - that is one of the "minor details" we are still working on.
Nothing changes for existing Basic/Plus/Pro keys: you still get Unraid OS updates for life and you will still have the option to upgrade Basic to Plus/Pro or Plus to Pro.
