Full-blown version upgrades are not listed here. Upgrades in versions are, sad to say, generally released as money-makers for the software manufacturers. The should be approached with caution, and implemented only when the addition of features you clearly need outweigh the dangers of the bugs and errors that today's new versions inevitably contain.

Copresco generally supports older versions of software long after the manufacturer has stopped selling them. That is why the patch collection below includes updaters for older versions of many applications. If a specific bug problem is causing you to consider an upgrade, Copresco strongly recommends that you look here first for an update to your current version.

Unlike full upgrades, the patches listed here should almost always be installed. Even if you do not appear to be having trouble, these fixes are engineered to address specific problems that have been identified and usually do no harm. Even if your program appears to be running smoothly, the patch may fix a problem that will affect Copresco's ability to print your documents. A good practice is to read the release notes or "readme" file before installing, just to see how pertinent the updates are to your workflow.
