According to the email from NT, where is 9.6?
Is it still the beta and need bata key or it is final release. I see nothing in NT about this release at all.

You can use the beta without having to change beta keys every month, your 9.3.1 license key will do fine. If changing beta keys was a hassle, now it's not.

Except, the beta gets updated every few days. So, you'll still have to download new builds or just use the current one to familiarize yourself with it... until it goes gold....or, you can wonder and wait.

There are a few options, using the beta now being the best one of them :D

I've been waiting for a while. I think that "Soon" means "Until the macusers switch to pc...."

No, it will be before that time. Hell hasn't frozen over yet. :devil:

You could have had it 5 months ago if you don't care about stability and usability. ;)

Actually the beta has been the most stable LW product I've used to this date on the mac... but yes, it still is in beta...

Our entire office recently switched over to the beta, and it's been pretty good so far. Especially now that the key is permanent.

Been using the beat version for the last 2 months, and the current beta appears to be 99% complete.

9.6 will be a free update to v9. If you have an earlier version of LightWave you just need to upgrade to LightWave v9 to be able to get 9.6.

That would be nice if its free, but its not. Only if you have version 9.

Yep, if you have a previous version, obviously you'll need to upgrade your license to have 9.

Honestly, I think I'd wait a few weeks to see what kind of announcement NT has in store. Maybe they'll have a "buy now and get 10 when it ships" upgrade or something. Then you can have 9.6 and 10. :)

Unless of course you need it for a project immediately, then you might want to upgrade asap.

It's out now officially. If you have a 9.x license you can download 9.6 at register.newtek.com

*edit* BeeVee is a post ninja... beat me to it.

OK, I just downloaded and installed 9.6 from My Downloads, but there is no registration utility in the folder with the apps like previous versions - so I just get discovery version.

I havent been part of the Beta program - so sorry if this is part of that - do I need a new licence key - and how do I register it?
