Kudos to the product team, I'm sure.
Raspberries to the bean counters.
In Aus the full version is now AUD539.00 (USD561) and upgrade from LR1
AUD179 (USD186). Absolutely no excuse in a global economy. Why on earth
would we buy it in our own country?

Oh I have relayed this.  Its just annoying - the product teams  
certainly don't set this.

The only thing that makes me feel a bit better about this is the poor  
performance of the dollar vs. the Euro.  Its like a tax for living in  
safer, cleaner, more healthy countries ;-)

Yes the catalog will have to be upgraded.

Hope you like it.
