Are Flashpipe users going to have to upgrade to the Studio Ultimate to receive any future upgrades like I will be required to do with Qimage Studio?

Or will Flashpipe still be good for upgrades for one year?

FlashPipe is still shown on the web site as a stand-alone program so I'm pretty sure the answer is no and " Flashpipe still be good for upgrades for one year".

That does not sound right.
Mike has made it clear that Studio owners will continue to get updates, see his MIni FAQ's:
http://ddisoftware.com/tech/qimage-ultimate/qimage-ultimate-mini-faq/ which say

We want to continue to reward existing Lite/Pro/Studio users with essential updates to keep those products working smoothly with all the latest technology.  As we work on a fast track to bring all the latest innovations to Qimage Ultimate however, the older Lite, Pro, and Studio editions will not be updated as frequently nor will they see new features like Qimage Ultimate.  That said, we will continue to update Lite, Pro, and Studio several times a year to add new cameras for raw support, fix bugs, and update existing features to ensure they are compatible with current technology.  This means providing updates to things like file formats that might change or become incompatible with some other brand of software, problems that might be caused by changed to anti-virus software, video drivers, additional requirements of new printer models/drivers, and so on.

Hope that helps.
Terry

Just wondering how long it is going to be before Mike issues an upgrade to include RAW processing for the Panasonic DMC-FZ100.  It has been on DCRaw for a while now, and is even on ACR now.

Paul.
See the link below.
Looks like the Panasonic FZ100 has been on the supported list for quite a while.

Are you having any problems, and which version of Qimage please?

As mentioned in other threads (for Qimage Studio for example), I'm planning biannual updates to most of my software.  Qimage Ultimate is the only software that has the "fast track" updates where the updates come weekly, sometimes daily.  My biannual update cycles are currently January and July for everything else which means I evaluate what is needed in those programs every January and July and if updates are needed (to support new raw camera formats for example), they get them.  Only occasionally will they get updated "out of cycle" due to high priority updates and that will usually be due to changed to support new Windows operating systems.  The last time FP was due for an update was July and at the time, dcraw had nothing new to offer.  In fact, David Coffin appeared to be in a "dry spell" with dcraw for a while there because dcraw went over 6 months without getting a single new camera model added.  Then just recently, he added more than 20 new models.  Bottom line for FP is that it (and Studio) will be seeing new camera models within about a month.
