I've been picking up some chatter on IRC and elsewhere about what 8.5 would be containing. While it seems a little steep in my opinion, I thought I'd post the list here so the devs can see it.


1. Faster and cleaner Area Lights
2. Faster and cleaner GI
3. Faster Bones and a more robust and true setup process
4. Instancing will be prevalent in Layout and you will be able to grow objects over time because of a new parametric tool that is hooked up to extrusions/bevels.
5. All light types will offer Shadow Map, Raytrace and Area Light shadow types.
6. nGons
7. NonDestructive/Editable Splines
8. Fully configurable UI
9. Tighter Modeler and Layout Integration (it will feel closer to 1 application)
10. AO will be a multipass option
11. Overhauled HVs
12. Object/Axis Gizmo in modeler
13. Tearable Viewport windows so you can have as many as you want

Reads like a good start.
