I have EXACTLY the same question. I, also, was not aware that apparently, an S1-4 Artist UPDATE would make that change to Ampire...I would have asked to miss class on that day. No excuse for this change, imho. No announcement of discontinuance, or reduction, of modification - nothing. Bad business, frankly. Like many others who have posted a question on this, I'm quite seriously unhappy at this development. Not a trust-engendering move.
