You don't understand why they're so quiet? Really??
I understand you.
But the truth, for better or worse, is that we actually know nothing
about the coming release. So, in my view, the important thing is to see the V5 version released before december 2019
, than users will judge it.
That's a lofty goal and very wishful thinking... You think they're just sucking their thumb and not reading the comments in this thread? Seems like they know they're on a sinking ship and are going to ride out the "2019 release" window they've left wide open for themselves to try and play catch-up to Prusa, knowing, quite literally, their ENTIRE business is riding on this release.
From Simplify 3D's actions
we've seen thus far, it seems like they thought they were far enough ahead that they could rest on their laurels and maybe make a prettier UI, a few "tweaks", release V5, and collect the check.....then they realized the global state of affairs......
Either they have the WORST MARKETING TEAM IN EXISTENCE
, or more likely they're praying a dev can pull one out of the hat before they sign their death warrant on V5's release. NO business
makes a beginning of the year statement claiming grandeur to then make their customers wait, LITERALLY the entire year, WITHOUT providing a single "teaser" of new features on the horizon, which brings us back to the beginning.... worst marketing ever, or its a farce.
Either @S3DChris has his hands tied (owners saying "look, we don't have anything yet, so buy us time"), or he knows the deal..... and is being forced to go down with the ship.
