Cumulative change-list available? To see what has changed from v9.8 to current 15? - l_d_allan - 08-04-2016

I'm evaluating whether to upgrade from my rarely used ver 9.8 to ver 15. It might help to see what was incrementally added.

Or perhaps something like:
  • Here's what changed from v9 to v10
  • Major changes from v10 to v11
  • Major changes from v11 to v12
  • Were versions 13 and 14 skipped? 
  • Major changes from v12 to v15

Thanks.

[Edit] Odd for the MyBB software engine to allow me to edit a post that I've replied to. Maybe it is "locked" after some one else replies?

History[edit]
  • Portrait Professional was originally known as My Perfect Picture.[17] Portrait Professional started at version 4. It required a web server to process the image. Version 5 did so as well.[18] 
  • Version 6 was the first version to run without needing a connection to a web server.
  • Version 8 improved face sculpting and slimming, user interface, color calibration and raw support in the Studio version.[19]
  • Version 9 was the first version to offer ClearSkin skin improving technology and also to work as a standalone and as a Photoshop plugin. Other improvements included the ability to handle profile views, a batch mode, and an intelligent touch up brush.[20]
  • In response to customer requests, version 10 had improved plugin support for Photoshop, Lightroom and Aperture, a new child mode, and an enhance skin only mode.[21] 
  • Major improvements in version 11 (November 2012) included its automated face and feature finder, an improved handling of multiple faces within one session, and improved face contouring and slimming.[22]
  • Version 12, released in March 2014, was rebranded PortraitPro. Major improvements included the ability to change the lighting on the face,[23] improved feature enhancing, and in the Studio Max edition only, an automatic batch mode with the ability to automatically determine age and gender of each face.[24]
  • Versions 13 and 14 were skipped; the next version sold was 15.[25]
