All L8 licenses use the same code and libraries. You can download both the latest L8 software and the previous major version from here.
The L8 software has a built-in update mechanism, which usually offers daily updates. According to the End User License Agreement (EULA), the L8 software needs to go through an annual license renewal process. This process is automatic, and you only need to give the L8 software access to the Internet. If you miss the renewal deadline, you will see a "License outdated" message, and in-app updates will temporarily stop. Once the L8 software accesses the license server, the renewal will be performed automatically.
If you use a Community Edition license, you will receive updates and technical support for only one year. However, you can still download and install the latest version of L8, although you won't be able to use libraries built after the end of the support period.
