App Store version stuck at v1.5 due (apparently) to sandboxing restrictions. However, if you download and install the latest version from DEVON Technologies over the MAS version, you will then have the latest version (currently v1.6.2) automatically registered to "App Store". Details: http://forum.devontechnologies.com/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=15377 An elegant solution. Thank you DEVONTech!
So it began... "Mac App Store customers can now unlock the Direct version via 'Unlock Coda' menu item".
I have no idea if I will use any of the new features, but I am completely comfortable upgrading and paying the reasonable fee to support an indie developer I have come to trust. Regardless of features, I'm confident the value is there -- even if it is only continued polish and refinement. Keep up the good work, Smile!

I test a bunch of PDF compression apps and decided this was the best one for me. Price is great. Interface is much better than others. Performed better for compressing ebooks than mac quartz filters (free) but not as well as PDF Shrink ($35). Difference was about 10% either way.
Current version is 4.6.3 I compared this against several other apps/techniques for compressing ebooks and Shrink pretty consistently resulted in 10% smaller files. (72 dpi, low quality, for iPad) Whether that is enough to justify $35 more than Quartz filters (free) or more basic app such as Squeeze ($2) is up to you.
Sorry, PDF Squeezer is $3 (not $2).
As I've continued to try compressing different files that have I haven't been able to get good results any other way, I can say that PDF Shrink performs far better than the others on poor-quality scanned materials. For example, a particular 100MB black and white scanned file, no matter the settings, all other apps I tried compressed the file to a tiny ~8MB (even at 600dpi) none of which were practically readable. PDF Shrink, at the highest quality settings, produced a 50MB that appears to be identical to the original. I have to say, though the interface is not attractive, the myriad of settings can really let you optimize the process to the situation. If you aren't happy with the results of the less expensive alternatives, PDF Shrink is probably your best shot.
I asked about the release notes for v1.5.5 on the cultured code forums and got this response from Mick: The update makes the non-MAS distribution Gatekeeper-compatible in anticipation of Mountain Lion. The in-app update will be released in coming days (to coincide with a MAS incremental update).
Price is currently $10 on the developer's site and at the Mac App Store.
Gridiron Flow 2.0.5 Essentials is the current version. Also, the Essentials version is free. 3 subscription-based add-on services are available for $10/mo each or $20/mo for all.
