I receive daily "price buster" emails from many of the major online retailers, and over the past couple of weeks, the retail package of VS Pro X4 has been offered at limited-time price points between US$30 and US$43, so it seems that Corel is flushing excess inventory of that product for some reason.
However, I'll bet this promotion is intended to make room for VS Pro X4 Ultimate and does not necessarily indicate the next major revision (i.e. VS Pro X5) is imminent.
Time WILL tell!
