50/50.. You pay for bug fixes. Nothing new from many years.
I used this to: When you use it for menu with over 100 items you need to use cache. But the cache doesn't work correctly. It expand and mark as active menu cached data. This problem exist form years and they doenst fix it. From many years there arent new supported extension. Only bug fixes...
