Redshift overview

Redshift is an educational astronomy application.

  • More than 2,500,000 stars, 70,000 fascinating Deep Sky objects, 10,000 minor planets, 250 famous comets visiting our planet, all major and dwarf planets, as well as Earth's Moon and the main planetary moons
  • 3D-depiction of the Solar System's 25 major moons, 10 minor planets and more than 30 fascinating deep space objects
  • Comprehensive astronomical data for all celestial objects
  • Scenic 3D-flights round stars, planets, moons and deep space objects
  • Live update option to download new discoveries and orbital data of satellites, comets and asteroids.

I can't figure out the version scheme. I bought version 3 a while ago, and did not upgrade to version 4 when you (Maris) bought it from the previous developer. Then your company said you had shifted to the Mac App Store and to buy from them. On 5/21/13 the Mac App Store said: "Redshift - Astronomy: Version 7" which I added to my wish list. Now the Mac App Store says version 2 (dated 9/26/13) is just released. 7 down to version 2? Can you please explain all the versions?
