I see there is now a release date for Version 6, March 2015.
Where have you seen it announced? Got a link? Presumably it wasn't announced by Adobe.
If I buy Lightroom now, will I get an upgrade to V6 as it has been announced or do I have to wait until next year?
You'd have to wait for Adobe to officially announce the imminent shipping version of Lightroom 6 - whenever that may be.
Adobe policy: Do I qualify for a free upgrade?
OK. Fair enough. Taken in by the rumours.
Looks like I will be buying V5.n.
Probably the report by this fool ... who doesn't know anything: <link removed>
One of the "revelations" in that "scoop" is that Adobe is introducing a $10/month payment plan for Lightroom 6 - which already exists for Lightroom 5.
Seems some people will post anything for clickbait.
