As a current user of FTM I just got an email from MacKiev as follows:
New FTM 2014.1 and Mac 3.1
How to get the updated editions
What you will get and when depends on what FTM version you currently have:
     1. Users of FTM 2014 and Mac 3: Hang in there! FREE updates are coming. They will be available in about a week or so through the built-in update feature. We will send you an email to let you know as soon as they are available.
     2. Users of older FTM editions: No matter how old your copy of FTM is, or whether its running on Windows or Mac, you can download an upgrade for $29.95 (vs. $69.95 regular price). Click here to take advantage of this limited-time upgrade offer today.
     3. New users: If you have never owned a copy of Family Tree Maker before, for a limited time, you can download a full edition from our online store for $49.95 by clicking here (vs. $69.95 regular price).
     Additional Offers:
  • Family Tree Maker users who do not currently have an subscription, will be offered a 14-day free trial.
FTM Home Page:  Most everything you will need to know can be found on our Family Tree Maker home page:

You may or may not know that Roots Magic now has the capability to Import a FTM2014 and earlier file, directly into Roots Magic.

HOWEVER: If you have the new patch from MacKiev, ( FTM2014.1) you may have an issue.
You must export your file as a FTM2012 or FTM for Mac 2012
Here is a link to the Roots Magic Help Desk explaining step by step.
