As with all RocketShipIt products you recieve free updates for life. If a carrier adds a new feature, changes their APIs, or new carriers are added you get it all for free.

ZPL, EPL, EPLII, and GIF labels. ZPL/EPL are the print codes (in base64) required for thermal printing.
The labels come back in base64 format, which basically means they are a string. They can be embedded in an HTML page for viewing/printing, stored in a database, sent to a thermal printer, inserted into a PDF, saved as a GIF file, or emailed off. RocketShipIt doesn't impose any limits to what you can do with them.
