I'm sure it's a joke.

Thats what I assumed Mike but I can't find any confirmation that it was an April fools prank.
It certainly looks real enough, I bet a few ppl are a little worried ...hehe.

I'd say someone other than discreet has fooled you. Look closely at the URL. Every other press release is hosted from "http://www4.discreet.com/company/press.php?id=" along with the article's id number. Strange that the release you have is from "http://discreet.alteea.com/" Which reports a 404 error btw.

Tell who ever send it to you that they got you.

Nice catch, mhcannon! If you look at the actual Press page... that news is not there. Wow, I was finding that very hard to believe. Haha, I got scared for a minute, as I use both Maya and 3ds max.
