We have Carrara 8.5 getting released end of the summer.
Another build of Studio is in the works from what I can gather from a support request I put in.
I don’t expect a major figure release to occur during the PA sales.
V5 got released end of October - early November. PC members had access to her first.
If I had to guess we’ll get a release some time before the PA sale or right after the PC celebration this year. I’m more inclined to think it is going to be during the PC celebration given the Carrara release and the PA sales are not that far away. (I do hope something I got told about 8.5 at Comic Con about it which I can’t repeat, is still correct.)
