I currently have 6.5 on my Mac. I was just curious if anyone has any opinions on whether the 7.5 upgrade is really worth it. So far I haven't done anything professional yet, pretty much still learning, doing small jobs.
I also see these rumors about v.8, anyone know any truth to this?

Hi djdeejay,

I think most of the basic tools are the same between 6.5 and 7.5. It depends what you're doing. 6.5 doesn't have Motion Mixer for character animation.

On the Mac, 7.5 runs faster on OS X than 6.5. You may want to repost on the Mac forum to get more Mac-specific responses.

Newtek said it will preview LW8 at Siggraph, which if I remember is late July. They've already said that anyone who buys LW7.5 now will get an automatic upgrade to LW8 when it is released later in the year.
