The database, print, and exports features appear to be exactly the same. The search for foods functions still pulls up a zillion things that you have to search for, like you search for chicken breasts and it's halfway down the list. The only reason I can see to upgrade to the newest version is if you are also going to use the premium edition online, so that you can sync the two together.
I noticed that. I've been using mine since 2008, and if the search feature is not improved, that alone is reason enough to not upgrade. I don't intend to use the online feature at all (yet).

I just searched for "steel cut oats" and six of the top ten results were MEAT products!?

Sticking with V1 here too! Sure hope they put some effort into a new version soon. The help feature is not supported by Vista in V1, but I've kind of figured the program out by now anyway. It always seemed pretty intuitive to me.
