I don`t want to spoil party, but I don`t think there is much to celebrate. NL say on twitter "Discount available just for a few days." Really? This is reward for years of waiting? I just see one image of car with noisy fireflies shadow. Can we see in these "few days" of discount full V5 feature list? Look at the posts before V1 V2 V3 releases. Features. Lot of new features with each of those releases. Nice pictures that demonstrated features. Comparsions of old and new images. V4 was disaster. Now there is even less informations about V5. If you look at this situation cool-headed - why there is no features advertised if they exist? ...
There is one very simple scene file in attachment. Please render it with V5 (GPU or CPU) to SL 20. If there will be real diffrence against V3 or V4, I will upgrade imediatelly. I will even regret discount and pay the full price.
I am sorry if I am wrong. I will wait.

It NL hasn't yet completed all the programming for the various plugins maybe the native formats can be added to the list of import options in the standalone Studio so at least data can be imported. The current formats available (http://www.nextlimit.com/maxwell/maxwell-studio/ ) should include the other formats anyway for those that opt not to get the plugin or it's incompatible with their older version?

What about the upcoming plugins? Can we preorder nonetheless and how, or may this not be possible due to lack of final testing till the preorderphase ends?

We'll make the pre-order available too for those plugins as soon as we "secure" them. We don't want to open the payment for something that could potentially delay for a month. Once we feel it close in time, you will have it available for pre-order for the same price. Maya is very close IMO, but we still have to test it to see the facts.

@Patrik: that "very simple scene" is only so in terms of geometry; regarding light calculations, it's not simple at all. Anyway, it's perfectly right to wait and see (I think, as a customer, I would do so, as it fits better my way of thinking), we'll keep revealing features in the following days.

Best,
Fernando
