If I buy camtasia 2019 today, it is superseded by 2020 in April?

When I buy themes etc for web development on themeforest they are supported for a year after with updates etc.

It seems camtasia wants you to buy a support contract immediately on the screen when you got to buy it?  This seems quite bad tbh, so I pay £255 for the bundle, and then they are looking to squeeze another £53 out of me immediately rather than support it by allowing updates and new version for next year, until renewal?

Or am I misunderstanding?  I was about to purchase, then the robot on chat was very unhelpful and just seemed to want to move on! so stopped my purchase today.

I just received a message in the site chat, to not missing the new version they suggest just waiting 2 months, wow guys, umm ok, that kinda sucks for customer service and looses you a potential customer really :( or income! )

So, I think if you purchase the current version within a certain time frame of the next version being released, TechSmith offers a complimentary upgrade. For example, if you had purchased Camtasia 2018 in late February 2019 and they released Camtasia 2019 on 4/30/19, you'd be on pretty solid ground to ask for a complimentary upgrade.
