The update in FM is for minor updates, such as 15.01, 15.02, and so on. Major updates may required new purchase. If you have annual agreement then FM will email you a download link with FM16 license key. If you just purchased (last month or so) FMP/FMPA, FM will usually give you a upgrade to the next version for free, you will have to call FMI.
Annual Volume License through (legacy licensing options) in 4/26/2017....
OR I just need to wait for the main system to realize there is a new update available maybe.
Keep waiting, the update with the new key is coming
Schamblee, thanks for your response.
I already send a copy of my post to FileMaker support. and I will give them a call ASAP. next time i'll wait till after May or beginning of June. then I will renew my license so i can get the new release of FM17
(not sure if the release date for FM 17 will be the in same period).

I understand that they are planning an annual release. You might consider a Filemaker Developer subscription, which includes previews of new software before release. Members have to agree not to comment on the release of new software. Previews usually are available about a month before the release of the official software.
It's worth the $99 subscription fee.
