Just to clarify slightly more, if you purchase the package you can download
both versions, and if you are working in Mathematica 5 or earlier you could
download the earlier DrawGraphics version and when you update to Mathematica
7 you could freely download the Presentations version. And also, so far at
least, I have been giving free updates. 

The latest update was in 19 May 2009. Sometimes purchasers change their
email address and if you didn't receive a notice please contact me.

Just to clarify, Presentations isn't a second package; it is the  
up-to-date DrawGraphics.

You wouldn't need to buy both.
