Gosh, these seem like really small changes to warrant a bump up to a new version number.

@Johnny: Well it has some great improvements, the ones I like most are arc/curves, spell check, new erasers and PDF packages. Compared to other companies like Adobe or MS, Bluebeam added a lot of new features.

GAH $149! Why is PDF software so bloody expensive?

Why does PDF editing software cost so much? Same reason that Office costs so much. Business software just costs that much. In the case of Bluebeam, they focus on the CAD market, which is used to paying $4000+ for a single copy of AutoCAD. So they’re not really feeling any price pressure on this.
But for us Tablet PC users, this is very expensive for a markup tool. I’m not upgrading. 6.5 does what I need it to do.
Different companies have different philosophies on version numbering. One company might move from version 1 to 10 in the same time it takes another to move from 1 to 3.
