well, I dont know about anyone else but I really like the new Newtek. It really is nothing like Newtek was only four months ago. They have kept their promises of frequent updates which has brought new life to Lightwave. When P Jespersen came in he promised change like many others before but he delivered with flying colors. all im saying is that its a great thing to see a step up to the plate. very well done!

I would love to see some screenshots of the new layer system in Modeler as mentioned in their press release. I agree, more information to the users is a lot better. Frequent bug squashing is ALWAYS welcome.

I just reread the press release and there's nothing about new layers in modeler....was that deleted or am I mistaken? Did anyone else read that earlier?

It does say "TEXT layer TOOL", which just sounds like an improved Text Tool (don't quote me on that). It seems there always one or two things in these official press releases that get missread or misstyped for some reason. I guess it's a spur of the moment thing. Too much excitement.

Nice frequent updates! NT on a roll! (It's not here yet though)

Good timing :D

But it also says more...so I guess they'll be more new features/bug fixes etc :)

Hi !

I also can say that I like "new" NewTek more and more :).

BUT (there is always but) I think I found BUG in Newsletter?

It says/writes this "not to mention the quashing of many more pesky bugs."

IMHO "quashing" need to be replaced with "squashing" and Newsleter will be much more stable :) :D ;)?

Actually....

quash quashed, quash·ing, quash·es

To put down or suppress forcibly and completely: quash a rebellion.


Maybe not intentional, but it is an appropriate word choice.

So it's a feature, not a bug? ;)

Heheh Para that's nice - It's Feature then or workaround maybe :)?
