This is a quote from the website

By ordering a TurboPrint license you will receive a "keyfile". With the
keyfile you can unlock additional features that are not available in the
    * Higher print quality
    * Support for additional print media (TrueMatch color correction &
correct paper loading):
    * Inkjet paper
    * Glossy paper
    * Transparencies
    * ...

The keyfile is also valid for all future updates to TurboPrint V1.xx. Owners
of a keyfile can also get upgrades to extended versions (V2.x and higher)
at a reduced price.

Note: please install the "Free Edition" first, available at our download
page to verify compatiblity with your Linux installation. After your
purchase you will receive a keyfile to convert TurboPrint FreeEdition into
the full version.
