Will we know the feature list before Siggraph? Or NT will not announce the feature list before the released date?

Nobody say 8.5 is even ready for SIGGRAPH '05, but Chuck said:


..... Any real news on future technologies for LightWave will come from NewTek at SIGGRAPH.

btw, Proton did mention that he was excited about what the LW Dev team has been doing and can't wait for Siggraph 2005

So, I will assume that we will get some info of next version at siggraph. ;)

Why should they announce anything shortly befor Siggraph? This does not make any sense since anything announced at Siggraph will get much more attention.

i remember some companies did annouce the feature list just few weeks before siggraph and release the new version at siggraph, but I can't remember which year .

NT just announce LW8.5, That is why I asked. If that is not the full feature list,
then they will make another one later, so it would get ppl attention more than once, before Siggraph and during Siggraph.Of course, this is just my opinion.

That is directly from yesterday's newsletter.

I wonder if the OpenGL hardware shader will support procedurals (crosses fingers)
