This is on the Foundry's site: http://www.thefoundry.co.uk/about-us/news-awards/the-foundry-launches-modo-10-series/ It looks like a game upgrade mostly, and kind of a weird release schedule. NT needs to get it together and get LW Next out or a least start the blog back up.

Doesnīt say much really, comeback when itīs released with more info:D

Thanks for the heads up though...now I know itīs soon gonna be released around the second quarter in 2016, so we have to see when lw 2016 is scheduled, and what more they can tell us in the blog development meanwhile the process continues.

What they're doing is releasing Modo 10 in 3 increments, each one focused on a particular area of the application. The first will be focused on tools related to real time applications in gaming or VR. The next release which will be 10.1 will be focused on something else which hasn't been revealed yet but they've suggested it may appeal more to those who in involved in things outside of games. They're suggesting 10.1 which is currently in beta (with a third release 10.2 already in alpha) should be roughly another 4 months after Modo 10 comes out. So basically, smaller and more focused releases but more frequently. The Foundry has admitted that stability and half flushed out features have become a problem so this is their new strategy. They will be showing off Modo 10 at GDC next week.
While I agree it would be nice to see LW next soon, I also am glad they will release it when its ready. Modo 901 was clearly rushed out before it was ready and probably could have used at least a few months more testing. I use Modo as well as LightWave and so I am looking forward to finding out more about Modo 10 (also Substance Painter 2 at GDC). I think they said Modo 10 will probably be released in April.

MODO Indie will purportedly be released on the same schedule as the MODO 10 cycle. Currently, MODO Indie is lanquishing behind the current commercial offering.

..and that just confirmed why the post I made earlier about making LW more relevant for game creation, even more true. I love LW, but come on. The silence is deafening :/
