    Question 9.2 release date?

    Hello,

    I am sorry to ask this, because I am sure that this has been discussed a couple of times before but I wonder if anybody knows the 9.2 release date. As far as I know it is only the Mac-version that is still in beta.

    Thanks in advance.

    "When it's done" would be the only real answer that any layperson can give. For any other, more detailed information, you need to join the OpenBeta.

    It's well worth joining the Open Beta programme.

    Also, it lets you give knowing winks, suggestive glances and say "Yeah, I suppose... for now..." when conversing with one's fellow LightWavers.

    Actually, it all depends on the Open Beta Testers. I feel like OB testers are responsible for the delay...It's not like how other companies who sets a date of release and actually releases it on the dot. Being an Open Beta tester I can say that NT listens to the OB group and tries to implement requests and stomps bugs submitted by us.

    I'm also happy how NT even asks us OB testers things like "How do you want this feature to act?" or "Please test this feature extensively and let us know what else it needs." There's eve a point when we said "This feature is too complicated," then NT rewrites the whole thing and re-released it as "Simple Feature"

    So I'll say what everyone here is saying, It'll be out when it's ready (or when we OB testers gives NT the green light, heheh). And with Neverko, Exception, and a whole lot of people that are stuck in the OB thread, testing LW 9.2 for you, LW 9.2 will be the best ever.

    Just my opinion.

    I'd say end of April or June. But that's just a gut feeling. The funny thing is that 9.0 will be out for almost a year without a bug fix. By now I got used to a lot of bugs, but I hope that NT will never work like this again. If 9.2 will be something stable, it'll be great. Features so far look very nice. Hopefully they are not only blenders, but work reliably in production.

    Cheers

    It's a different way of doing things, really. Over the earlier Open Betas that I may or may not have been involved with, I found myself using 9.0 more and more as the Beta progressed. For the last months of the Beta, I didn't fire up 8.5 once.

    I think pretty much everyone who's using LW "For Real" is doing much the same thing.

    I JUST started using the 9.2 beta, and so far it seems as stable as any release I've seen of LW. I had one crash when using the greeble plugin the other day, but I was doing some funky stuff, so don't hold it against LW.

    Does anyone know how much an upgrade from 9.0 to 9.2 will cost? Because im buying 9.0 very very soon (within days) and I don't have much money (college student here. LOL) so I need to know how much it'll be so I can start saving up!

    Upgrade from 9.0 to 9.2 is FREE!
    There are no problems, only opportunities...
