SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) has both advantages and disadvantages for business software. One of the biggest benefits being able to get updates for "free" - you don't need to upgrade the software on your desktop, as the application vendor handles this all for you, on their end.

Xero have already made the necessary changes, and businesses already using them don't have to do anything come October 1.
Something I received recently also helps sweeten the deal:
Disclaimer: We are a certified developer for Xero. I have also checked with Xero about promoting this offer on my blog, and they are happy for me to do so.
