Pixologic acquires Sculptris

Pixologic announced on their ZBrush Central forum that they have acquired Sculptris (the free sculpting application) and hired its programmer Tomas Pettersson. The previous version of Sculptris is still available for free on the Pettersson's web site. The current Sculptris version (known as Sculptris 1.02), renamed to Sculptris Alpha 5, can be downloaded from ZBrush Central forum. Is this the last free version of Sculptris?
