Should I buy Pixelmator or wait for Pixelmator Pro ?

I'm switching from Adobe Fireworks CS3.
I do not work with Photoshop because I use very little features just for exporting images for websites and Fireworks generates lighter images with very low quality lose.

Firstly I wonder if buy Pixelmator or wait for Pixelmator Pro release. If I buy Pixelmator will I be able to upgrade from Pixelmator to Pixelmator Pro ?

On the other hand I miss the great Fireworks image compression when exporting to web. Fireworks images are 30% lighter than Pixelmator.
Also I miss batch processing to export and resize images to any size according to the website requirements. I've watched a video which show how to make a batch with Automator but from my point of view, atl least, image export and image resize should be native in the app.

Many thanks

I'd recommend to just wait for Pixelmator Pro. It's right around the corner. I haven't heard it yet officially, but the way the App Store works, it will be very unlikley that there will be specific upgrade prices from a previous version of Pixelmator.
