Adobe Premiere Elements 14 was released about September 24, 2015. History has been that a new version is released each year around that time of year. After the release of a new version, Adobe focuses its marketing and support on the new version. But, Premiere Elements involves an outright purchase. Its license that you purchase does not come with an expiration date.
Even to this date, certain online vendors may still have older versions of Premiere Elements in stock for sale. And, once the version that you purchase is no longer the current version, it just does not stop working. (Except for from time to time glitches in program and/or computer).
These are standalone products which mean that each year, the new release may have new and flashy features that are unique to this new version. Your older version does not get upgraded with the new features of the new version.
