Hello,
Any news on A6 ? I think you guys (devs) could try keeping the eagerly awaiting comunity updated more frequently ;)
Not everyone has the time to invest in too much testing to get to the dailies (i still dont get it why they are some sort of exclusive ? make usage of them on the own responsibility of the user etc. and you will get more intell on possible bugs - imho you can only benefit from it, not vice versa) .
On the other hand this renderer is so promissing that many would want to switch, and start rebuilding their props and assets, and work out their own workflows.
However - my own exaple - if it would turn out that the rendering speed in distributed mode is no sufficient to match the needs, it would be a waste of time for the time being untill corona gets faster :)
Cmon guys, we're facing serious decisions here, try to undestand and support your future customers :D !

I understand the developers reluctance to give daily builds to everyone. Just look through the forums messages - and you see that there are some who even complain before they have touched the product, and complain like it was a finished product. Ensuring that people at least has had some rounds/battles with the more stable versions should take the top of unreasonable - and time consuming crap (pardon my french) from these kind of users.
Don't get me wrong, I am waiting for A6 like a little kid waiting for X-mas, and I would of course, like anyone, like to have it here and now. But having decided to drive on the safe side, only using stable alpha releases, - after all I use it in production. I have also by that said yes to wait for the release to be stable.
What good is a date if it is only a pseudo date? I mean, we have seen plenty of software houses releasing programs on a published date, and then it is crap and is afterwards followed by a stream of service packs. Isn't that the reason why most design studios wait 6 months to install the Autodesk releases, - just to be sure that the most severe bugs are killed. Be patient, it's just round the corner. I read somewhere on the forum that the folks at Corona has final developer meeting today and a date should be set.

What decisions are you facing that you cannot cope with with A5?

No, Is just the way you wrote second, only polish people write it that way even as a joke.

I didnt know that you are indeed polish, It was just a blind shot.

Ps. Thanks :)
