I'm interrested with this promotion, but when I select an Delphi XE7 update i'm getting 2 "Update subscriptions".
What are the différences between them ?, aren't they the same thing ? :

1 year Update Subscription for Delphi - Enterprise Provides one year of upgrades and three support incidents.
électronique : 811,00 €


Free Limited Time Update Subscription for Delphi - Enterprise : Free

If you are upgrading from XE2 or earlier then you have to also purchase a 1 year Update Subscription to get the upgrade price. In that case, two subscriptions are added to your order. You get the free limited time subscription that gets you the next release. And then your paid 1 year subscription starts after that free limited time subscription ends.

For new user purchases or upgrades from XE3 or later, the 1 year purchased subscription is optional. For that one you will see the limited time free subscription that will give you the next product release. And of course you can also purchase a 1 year subscription to add on after that if you want to continue with it.

The one year update subscription costs less than buying a single upgrade and includes support, beta access, and updates to older releases that you may have to it's a good deal.
