Half-price upgrade offer for Nero 2015 - but zero info on product features?

So I get an email from Nero today, inviting me to spending £40 quid upgrading to Nero 2015 Platinum - with absolutely no info whatsoever as to what is available in this new version.

Is this some kind of joke? Why would I upgrade without knowing what I'd be getting?
And since last year's upgrade broke the ability to play BluRay discs for about 3 months, I'm obviously a bit cautious...

    I see we're in this situation again with Nero 2019 - I'm getting spammed to get a 'half price upgrade' but as usual there's no info on what's actually in the new version....
    • The surreal nature of this discussion seems to have been recognised by other people?

      The fact is that if you dig hard enough (or just buy Nero and try it) you realise that the software often does contain useful upgrades. It's never been clear why it's so difficult to dig out a list of these improvements from Nero? They should be keeping a list of version enhancements and bug fixes? Why not post those?

      If you do run into problems getting Nero to run, support are quite helpful. However it remains annoying to find that you've bought a product and can't use it while you contact support and work out what the problem is. As a result the software can remain non-functional for long periods of time. By the time the software starts functioning the new version has often been released.

      Positives:
      The Nero drag and drop interface is particularly user friendly... it makes Nero more intuitive than most other software... so until something better comes along it's not worth dumping it?

      However upgrading is not worth it until the software has some clear advantage listed or Nero have had enough time to add some features they didn't bother to document?

      Another reason for upgrading is that Nero often bundle a whole heap of software for a modest price: Most of the software is never used but there are one or two programs that come in handy from time to time and make the price of an upgrade worth it?
