I replied to your question just a minute ago, but just incase you don't read it on the other discussion board, no it isn't. The commercial version is for the 1.5 version, which is the current version on Steam. Hope this helped!

Also - Nevigo is in talks with Valve to see the best way to release 2.0 on Steam and having 1.5 people upgrade. I'm not sure how far these talks have come - but its in the worx.

Hi,

sorry for the re-post, but I just posted a little update in another thread:

Regarding the 2.x upgrade, it'll come to Steam soon as a DLC (yay!). Everything has been prepared on our end, but the people responsible for us at Valve were (understandably) pretty much captured in the summer sale. We're positive that we can now get it going, and we'll keep you posted as soon as we know more about the exact release date.

And yes, we put an optional "commercial use upgrade" up on Steam instead of charging the full price up-front, allowing you to use articy:draft for half the price until you actually make money with it, and this optional component also has the word "upgrade" in it.

No, we did not do that to trick you into paying more. Actually, it's the opposite.

Sorry for any misunderstanding this may have caused, @athesloraiel.

All the best to you guys,
-Kai

Well, Articy just received an update today, it may be a signal that the 2.0 version is not far ahead

Hi scardario,

you are totally right, the update you encountered contains a modified starter for the upcoming 2.x upgrade DLC.

The version is ready, uploaded and is only waiting for Valve to finish their shop configuration for the upgrade DLC.

I hope that does not take that long... Keep your fingers crossed.

-Peter

The upgrade to version 2.0 is now on Steam! So if you want it you can get it now. =)
No i can't get (buy) it. Its like buying AD again, even more, just to upgrade

what???
No chance at all I would pay this. Nevigo needs to learn the definition of a DLC. Adding a couple of shortcuts, or plugin-like features (export), should be part of the maintenance and natural patching of a product. Asking users to pay 50% of the original price of a product after it's been on steam for a whole 6 months is much the same as asking a user to upgrade the mouse, keyboard, and monitor on his new $3000 PC for $1500. Most sensical people are simply not going to consider it.

I liked the idea of Articy, but this has told me, outright, that Nevigo is not interested in giving any further upgrades to indie users, like myself, without pulling deep from our pockets. With that, I'll find another source.

I'm guessing that the use of "DLC" is simply the mechanics on how Steam works. By using this method you can still have one instance of the application in your list and still get upgrades, as opposed to having a list of different versions. But that is my guess anyway. Personally I don't think the tool is that expensive. But if you don't want to or cannot afford it, there is always LibreOffice and ChatMapper available (both are free) but don't offer nearly the kind of functionality as this tool does. I went with the commercial version, and I can understand that this is way out of reach for many people, but if you are serious about making games, then you are also aware (I hope) that it costs money to do that. I only have one objection, and that is that you must have multiple user license to to get the functionality of their 'access' product, which seems rather silly to be honest.

it would be great if we could share projects on steam as well as collaborate on them...
