      • The (free) upgrades apply only to BCC AVX bought from Boris (or a Boris dealer) at the regular price.
      • For an upgrade from BCC 6 to BCC 7 via Avid, you will have to wait until it is included in a future Productivity Pack and then buy the new pack.  Still a lot cheaper than via Boris as it also would probably include any newer versions of Squeeze etc.  The only thing you need now is patience.

      • I asked them about the BCC7 upgrade and they confirmed that bundled products are not eligiable.
