Why would they need and address if the shipment is electronic?

Did they ask if they could orso we could ship ?, OR did they give you a date of shipping?

There is a BIG difference.

At some point the term electronic delivery was extended to include the possibility of shipping on CD without manuals. I think it was a post by Chuck Baker towards the end of last year.

Well i don't quite understand the email...from Newtek Eurrope btw.

it says (translated from german):
"We will ship the electronic upgrades to LW8 very soon. To ensure that no delays during shipment occurs, we would like to check your shipping address. (...)"

Now, if it's electronic, which i would define a download, then you can't ship it :D
Whatever, just give me some kind of access to LW8 "very soon".

Yes, it has been posted several times. The LW 8 is 4 CDs (1 program, 2 content, 1 sampler) and is being shipped.

Have I missed an important post somewhere. I've had a confirmation e-mail too, but only a statement that it will be shipping 'soon'.
It's been listed as 'soon' for at least a couple of months now.
So as far as I'm aware, Lightwave isn't shipping, but there's lots of activity at Newteks and and it will be shipping....... soon.

The email says 'soon' and Newteks 'soon' is often longer than most people's soon..

I think we (who've pre-ordered) received the same confirmation email. I'm not getting too worried about it coming, it's been talked about for so long - but it does look like they are getting closer to a final product.
