Woohoo! I just wanted to add a shout out that version 9.6 has been released today and are available to download at NewTek.
I’m so happy with this release, as about every quirk I had with 9.5 is gone. Actually there is over 600 fixes and feature requests implemented in 9.6. It’s been a long beta cycle for this version, but it’s been worth it. Being a longtime LightWave user myself (since version 3.5) this is without a doubt the most impressive and stable LightWave version released, ever! It’s indeed exciting times for LightWave users these days. Well, all info about 9.6 is available at NewTek’s site, so no point in posting them here. LightWave 9.6 is already doing an excellent job for me producing wonderful renders in a fraction of a time of what 9.5 did (together with all the other new goodies), and it’ll keep me more than satisfied until they bring on version 10.
Just wanted to share some nerdy application joy. Now it’s back to work, in the shiny new release build of 9.6.
