They are probably waiting for NAB to come around before doing anything.

I sure hope they have some big suprises in store for us.

I would be dissapointed to think it took them 3 months longer to wrap up lightwave and didn't know they were that far away on Dec 15th.

Either they decided to put something in that was going to be saved until 8.5 or they had some serious bug issues. Sure would be nice to know what is going on. Their lack of communication seems to indicate new features IMO.

If it is new features they need to learn to lock the code and fix the bugs then release before adding features.

I think this thread should have been called the storm before the quiet.

Once 8 is out, everyone is going to be using it instead of spending time here....

I think they decided to wait for some fixes for the Mac guys. Something they had to wait on Apple for.

But someone will quickly try to find a flaw in it and come back here to complain. And once again we will have gone full circle.

Any large software package has serious bugs that need to be squashed. The last few bugs are always the nastiest and take the longest to fix.

I think they've just decided that anything they say can and will be used against them.

is it just me or does you also think that siggraph would be the natural relase date for lightwave 8 as it would give the biggest imapact press wise ofr lightwave 8?

nab is more about tv shows and hardware than 3d apps and special fx.

..as time passes by [nice song btw] siggraph looks more and more as a possiblility.

Yep, I think if Newtek released LW8 at this years Siggraph it would have a bigger impact press wise ...... just not the sort of press Newtek would want though :p

"Read all about it, Read all about it, Newtek employees lynched at this years Siggraph by impatent mob !!!"

Onlookers report hearing the mob chant slogans like, "I'll give you hard body impact collissions you little ....", "I'll re-orientate your bones for you alright !", and "Viva la Modeler !!" :D
