Technically yes and no. I think this will benefit both sides.
Untill now it mostly a Yes, the bugfixes in A7 keep on going and little new functions are added while on Juicebar spectacular plugins are released every week, now I dunno who's behind it, but this Haute guy is surely releasing tons of stuff, and probably making good money, while I could see some of his work would be almost a default feature for Arena, like the Extruder effect he released today.
Now I grant everyone a reward for his work, and I now devving can be painstaking shitwork, but with more then 90 plugins on Juicebar alone from him, while the latest releases from Resolume contain mostly bugfixes and as new features transitions, gradients and some more (imho) minor add ons, I can see how the devving of new effects for Arena will be less and less and the way to go is to spend more money on Juicebar, so next to the new way of upgrading (the 219€ a year) they created a second source of income cheering we should take a look and be amazed with all the fancy stuff there.
So in the end I have an eerie feeling that the guys behind Resolume are more in it for the money then before, while working on completer bug free version of the software as they have done before is pushed somewhat to the background. The more plugins are sold, the more money is made, if this is the case fine, but then be honest about it, tell us, the 219€ a year is for bugfixing and for new features go to Juicebar, because now I'm still awaiting a future request, and it wouldn't surprise me if it would be delivered, by Juicebar, as a plug in, for 49,99
