The X_TRADER platform has never seen a price increase since its inception. During the product lifetime, significant enhancements have been made to the platform. Also, during that same timeframe, infrastructure costs and operational costs have risen at a steady rate. We are now simply standardizing our pricing across all formats: X_TRADER, X_TRADER ASP and TT. With the introduction of the new TT platform, the total cost of ownership will be greatly reduced, benefiting the users with the elimination of dedicated infrastructure and installed software costs.

The following 2 users say Thank You to TradingTech for this post:
People won't switch if the new one is more expensive, so increase the price of the old one in line with the new. Makes sense.
(even if the old is out dated technology, requires significantly more infrastructure and no longer receives enhancements!)
Some questions... Question 1: Does the new TT do everything the old XTrader does yet? Question 2: Do you have any benchmarks on how a) Autospreaders and b) ADL performs in the new TT when compared to "XTrader running on a dedicated co-located server"? Ideally something that compares your TT infrastructure under a realistic work load rather than it just running a single autospreader. Question 3: Now does the new TT handle client disconnects be it client-cloud or cloud-'tt infrastructure'?

TRADE OPTIONS WITH NEW FUNCTIONALITY IN TT
TT has enhanced options support with a beta release of two widgets that currently support options on CME.
The Vol Curve Manager widget supports viewing bid/ask implieds, settlement curves and a TT-provided automated fit. The automated fit is recorded every five seconds, allowing for visualization/analysis of volatility changes over time. You can also manage your own curve using a seven-point clamped cubic spline model.
The Options Chain widget allows you to view all options for a given expiration in a classic chain layout. Theoretical values and Greeks use the volatility curves viewed or managed in the Curve Manager. When you don't manage your own curve, theos and Greeks will use the automated fit.
AUTOMATE YOUR EXIT STRATEGY WITH OCO AND BRACKET ALGOS
Two new TT Algos help you mitigate risk and automate your exit strategy for open positions.
OCO Algo: Enter a limit order away from the market and, at the same time, enter a stop order in case the market moves away from you. If one of the orders is filled, the other is canceled.
Bracket Algo: When an initial limit or stop order is filled, this algo triggers an OCO. You can automatically set your profit and loss targets before entering a position.
VIEW ORDERS AND FILLS IN CHARTS
Now you can view orders and fills in the Chart widget. Fill indicators show when orders were filled alongside historical market data, and order indicators allow you to cancel and modify working orders directly in the chart. Coming soon: Enter orders directly in a chart.
PREVENT OVERFILL WHEN QUOTING MORE THAN ONE LEG WITH AUTOSPREADER®
While quoting more than one leg of a spread with Autospreader gives you a greater opportunity of getting filled, you risk getting filled on more than your desired quantity. Prevent Overfill with Reload is a new Autospreader Rule that allows you to quote multiple legs when using Reload until there is a possibility of an overfill. When an overfill is possible, this rule suppresses quoting in all but the first leg of your spread, thus preventing an overfill situation.
OPTIMIZE WORKSPACES WITH MULTI-WINDOW FUNCTIONALITY
Now TT supports multiple windows within a workspace. Create up to eight separate windows, each with its own layout, in each workspace. Only one window is viewable at a time, but all windows are open and running in the background, and you can quickly navigate between them. Coming soon: View all windows at the same time and position them on multiple monitors.
ACCESS AUSTRALIAN SECURITIES EXCHANGE (ASX) AND SINGAPORE EXCHANGE (SGX)
TT now provides connectivity to ASX and SGX through the exchanges’ colocation facilities, which reduces price and execution latency. In addition, TT also now supports detailed depth on both exchanges.

We have not begun to transition the 7x ADL tutorials to the TT platform. In the meantime, I encourage you to participate in our Community page where numerous ADL developers share tips and answer questions.
So the answer to Question 1 is obviously "no" based upon your most recent reply.
Since my 3 questions seem to be the only 3 questions you haven't answered in this thread, I can guess what the answers are for the other two questions.
Sorry if I seem like a hater - I'm actually not. If you actually read this entire thread and other TT threads here at futures.io you'll actually see I've been one of your big supporters. It's just infuriating to be a long time user (supporter and Beta tester at times) of XTrader but now to be in the situation that you've stopped improving your flagship product, in order to promote your new product that a year after launch still doesn't have the some of the same (base?) functionality. Seems like you've abandoned the people whose support got you to where you are, but then I'm just a single user (with multiple licenses) so my opinion may not be representative.
