Default maya 2009?

Hi - i'm thinking about getting the latest version of maya. I'm wondering if anyone knows whether autodesk is planning to release a new version soon or are just going to release service packs for a while.

I did a search for maya 2009 but didn't really find anything.

At the SCA in dublin (euro siggraph conference) Jos Stam is doing a talk on unified dynamics slovers, with demos, which I would think is going to be nucleus for the rest of dynamics, muscle and the updates in Ex1+2 will be in there.

But I would wait till siggraph anouncements before commitiing to anything as thats the time of any major updates this far in the year.

Haven't a clue what will be in unlim or complete though.

DJ, do you use a MAC?

Maya is inherently buggy on the MAC OS's... LOL

The only bug I get is when I am using Perspective mode and rotating and moving round a model, It can go a bit "funny". I fix it by going into the othrographic modes and back into persp. I suspect it either a VGA Driver issue or a problmed Maya has with my DrirectX. Ill let you know when I do :p

yeah you'll definitely see Maya 2009 at siggraph. The latest they'll release is in the fall. It'll probably be worth the wait though. My friend was talking about some features in it, but I don't know where he got that info.
