Apple Forces Omni Group to Abandon Upgrade Pricing for Mac App Store Purchases

Ken Case:

My apologies: I’m afraid we will not be able to offer upgrade pricing to our Mac App Store customers after all. So long as we continue to sell our apps through the Mac App Store, we are not allowed to distribute updates through other channels to apps which were purchased from the App Store.

Really wish Apple would add a paid upgrade mechanism to the App Store, but I don’t think it’s in the cards.
