Did I miss something?

Just received an email from Cyberlink proudly announcing a Sale and going on to boast More Ways To Enrich Your Digital Life - by getting PowerDirector 15 (yes 15) thats faster smoother and has more editing features. I also see on this forum on May 31 2018 a new patch has been released for PD15.

Call me old fashioned but I thought when I purchased PD16 I WAS getting a faster smoother and more featured video editor than PD15 but on the surface one could be forgiven for thinking maybe PD15 was better than PD16. I know some users have been disappointed with so called improvements in PD16 that failed to address issues in PD15.

Yes I checked my calendar and its not 1st April either. (UK April fools day)

So whats going on? Should I upgrade to PD15 - but seriously - why is PD15 being updated when surely CL should be concentrating on their current PD flagship v16?

"why is PD15 being updated"

I don't think we will ever know the true reason and the release announcement gives nothing at all away. I for one am glad that Cyberlink do not 'turn their back' on existing customers come the annual appearance of a new version.

Cyberlink is quite good, in my view, of supporting previous versions of PowerDirector, heck they put out a patch this past July 2017 that was for PD14. Now, if you wish to discuss the persistant typos in some of their ads, we can talk... HP Envy Phoenix/4thGen i7-4770(4@3.4GHz~turbo>3.9)
Nvidia GTX 960(4GB)/16GB DDR3/
Canon Vixia HV30/HF-M40/HF-M41/HF-G20/Olympus E-PL5.
