I must have missed something since someone mentioned "newly announced features" that would be beta tested soon. I saw something about 3D motion blur, but what else is known to be in the 9.x cycle specifically? I know we're all hoping for more modeller in layout and more modeller altogether (edges cont'd) and obviously they will continue to refine stability issues as needed.

So, what does the 9.x series hold for us?

Edit: Man, I hate it when I make a typo in the title. Can a mod fix that? :)

Oh and I guess I should have started here, huh? Just saw this.

no feature list perse, but we have been told the following:

Among the new technologies to be presented are: a true, 3D photo-realistic motion blur, 3D photo-realistic depth of field, improved OpenGL capability in Modeler, additional capabilities for the new Advanced Camera Tools and improved sub-surface scattering.
and Mac will be universal binary:

The Universal Binaries port will enable LightWave to run on both the PPC G4 and G5 CPUs and the new Intel-based Macs. Optimized performance will be provided for Mac users natively on both series of CPUs.
