Frequently Asked Questions
Is Axure RP 8 a free update?
Yes. If you currently have any version of Axure RP, you can update to Version 8 for free. Customers currently using the Standard edition will be updated to Pro. Customers using the Pro edition will be updated to Team.
What happens if you buy between now and the release?
The new prices will take effect the day of release, which we anticipate will be about a month from now.
- If you buy RP Standard now for $289, you’ll get a free update to RP Pro 8 ($495) when it is released.

What happened to the Standard Edition?
The Standard Edition, which doesn’t have the documentation and co-authoring features of Pro, was introduced in 2012 for customers who use Axure RP less frequently or on smaller projects. With RP 8, you will be able to subscribe to Axure RP Pro monthly for $29 / month and have access to the full feature set.
Is Pro different in 8?
Yes. The Pro Edition in Version 8 will not come with team projects. If you want to co-author with team projects, you will need the Team Edition. Existing Pro customers will get a free update to the Team Edition in Version 8. If you’re new to team projects, this article goes into further detail about team projects in Version 8.
Some customers have asked for more pricing options, especially when working on shorter-term projects. The subscriptions are meant to accommodate those requests. For most customers who plan to use Axure RP regularly, we would recommend the perpetual licenses for RP 8.
