StarTools 1.6->1.7 was a rather massive update.
This short video demonstrates what's new vs 1.6;
The full GPU acceleration alone, should be a reason to check out if the new version is worth your while. You can try 1.7 with your current license in "courtesy" mode - it's fully functional including save capability, so you can see if the updates are worth it to you.
The community's monetary support is greatly appreciated and it is a big part of what keeps StarTools going, but at the same time I absolutely understand not everyone has 29 AUD to throw around for the renewal fee without seeing the tangible benefits for themselves - everyone's situation is different and the recent "human malware" has caused a lot of unexpected hardship for some.
