Crystal Upgrade

@smorkis or @jstreker

I followed the wiki on how to upgrade my quartz crystal from 1.4 to 2.0. i get the following error. "coupon redemption limit exceeded" or something like that. see attached pic for details.

the site advertises a five dollar upgrade. couldn't get the upgrade to go through even after reading other threads pertaining to the same issues and after multiple attempts.

i went ahead and purchased 2.0 at the full price as that was the only option I have. was wondering if i could get credit towards k2d or something ?

Each QuartzCrystal 1.x license key can be used as a coupon for only 1 copy of QuartzCrystal 2.0. Continuing discusson over e-mail...

Re: Crystal Upgrade

Does the upgrade fix outstanding bugs? Will it get stuff working strictly with the software renderer like it is supposed to, and will the window be able to close without crashing? This was never fixed in the classic version.

From the QuartzCrystal 2.0 release notes:

Fixed crash when canceling in-progress renders on Snow Leopard.

Regarding software rendering: I'm not sure this was ever the case (AFAIK there isn't a reliable way to force QC into software rendering mode). We're investigating.
