On 1 August 2014 the quicken.com.au domain, which is currently used to fetch share prices, will become owned by Intuit in the U.S. and we will replace this with a new share price feed in the product using the reckon.com domain.

Would cost you more to see out a Solicitor to even consult on this for you than the upgrade. Issue here is that software is very loosely defined by Aus Consumer Law and offers far more protection to the Corporations than Consumers/Users.
I've adopted a position of wait and see. Until something changes:
Scan the .qph file to identify all missing price records (since Jan-2008) and write these as a valid .csv file. (removed 7 years of gaps!)
Import these prices into the .qph file, using RPP 2013
Rescan the .qph file and directly change the volume records that were imported incorrectly.
This works for me and when Reckon lets us know what the new improvements are in RPP 2015 I will look at their solution. Until then I have a better solution than what Reckon is able to or prepared to release.
Note: This feature is available to Reckon Accounts Personal Plus and Reckon Accounts Home and Business only.
Reckon Accounts integrates with Advance Desktop Super. Advance Desktop Super is a self managed superannuation software package designed for professionals in Australia who administer superannuation funds.
You can export data from Reckon Accounts in CSV format and then import them into Advance Desktop Super. For example, if you are an accountant or a manager of superannuation funds, you can export data from Reckon Accounts investment accounts to use in Advance Desktop Super.
