I would say yes. After three months I am still scratching the surface but consider it well worth the money

Off the top of my head::

The entire application is visually crisper with Windows ribbon menus.

Multiple moveable sizeable windows

Detailed information about blocks or trainsets pops up by pointing at the object

I can save a configuration for the laptop (which I use upstairs) that is different from the twin monitor set up that I use in the train room

Custom command file that executes on opening or after a power out.....I throw a load of points controlled by the original DCC Concepts decoder

Prerequisites/Gotos/Labels much improved

Braking accurachy has been enhanced (although currently there are some side effects :cry:)

Limited distance move........makes the Kadee shuffle a breeze.

I havent even started on variables which I suspect will add a whole new dimension to programming routines


I sense that Robert (RFS) has explored further than I so he may well add to this list

Carpe diem Dave

Best wishes

John

I haven't really explored much further.  But I would try to avoid skipping a version as it can become expensive. The upgrade from V8 Gold to V9 Gold is 101 Euros, and the upgrade from V7 to V8 somewhat less than that I recall. 

But the upgrade now from Version 7 to Version 9 is 270 euros. By upgrading to V9 now you get full support and all the new features, plus you won't have a steep upgrade cost when V10 comes out.
