Will the new one transfer my inventory and recipes or is this a seperate installation?

I believe it transfers the inventory...but here are the instructions from BeerSmith for upgrading:

Upgrading an Existing BeerSmith 2 Installation to the Latest Build
  • Be sure to close any running versions of BeerSmith before upgrading
  • It is never a bad idea to make a backup copy of your Documents/BeerSmith2 directory before upgrading – this contains all of your data
  • Download the latest version (PC or Mac) above
  • For the PC version, run the installer and install it to the same Program Files directory as your existing program
  • For the Mac version, open the DMG file and drag the BeerSmith program to your Applications folder. You will be prompted to overwrite the existing application. If you have trouble opening the compressed DMG file above, try downloading and opening the uncompressed file instead.
  • Never install the program to your Documents/BeerSmith2 directory as this could overwrite your existing data.

my trail version expired few days ago so this promo is perfect for me, thanks

Update/install is FAST!! I mean REALLY fast... Of course, my system is no slouch, but still. Launches nice and fast too.

Everything I had in the previous version is still there. You just run the installer and it updates what you have. Don't remove the old (manually) and install fresh.

I'm glad I purchased the license when I did... :D

It transfers your old data, and I agree, it was FAST! It took more time to backup my old data (always a good idea) than it did to install the new version. The recipe cloud isnt terribly exciting right now, but as everyone upgrades it should get better. What I am excited for is how it will be integrated with the possible upcoming release of the mobile versions, which the dev has mentioned a couple times in the newsletter.
