    Since when has Newtek EVER been that worried about deadlines? I seem to remember them saying 9 would be released Q4 2005.

    Is it of any use?

    Does it do what you expected, or what you needed?

    Have you any suggestions for making it better?

    Object Detail Replacement plugin

    It allows you to animate with low detail models, and have them automatically swap when you render. It also allows you to toggle back and forth to view the scene etc.

    Screamer Net improvements.

    Single frame render over multiple machines. Theres scripts to help you do this, but having it built in would be a god-send.... and it should be fairly easy to implement.
