It's not worth much. Lots of noise about how wonderful it's going to be, and not ONE scrap of real information on features, release date, or pricing. It's nice to know they are still alive, but it's no better than all the other "announcements" about version 5 we've been getting for the last year.
At the end of January last year (almost 15 months ago), they said "Stay tuned for more information about the exciting new features and upgrade pricing later in the year as we get closer to the release of Version 5.0." Well, I've stayed tuned, and I haven't heard anything about the new features, OR about pricing.
I'm getting to the point where I don't care how wonderful Version 5.0 will be. As far as communications goes, S3D has been treating their customers like dirt for far too long, and I don't like supporting that behavior. We shouldn't have to hear that the company is alive & well and going to come out with Version 5.0 (someday) from a 3rd party blog.
I've been dealing with computer software since punch cards and FORTRAN, and I have NEVER dealt with a company that is so completely abysmal at communicating with their customers (you know, those guys who pay the bills?)...
