Hi, I’m new here to the forums but I had a question concerning the new anticipated version 7 of Rhino. I recently finally purchased Rhino 6 and am now hearing that my software is going to be obsolete soon… Am I going to have to pay for another license for this new version of Rhino? Rhino 5’s age lasted for 6 years so I expect the same for Rhino 6, but after only a little over a year it’s going to be obsolete?
No one has any idea when 7 will be out. If you want to use 7 in WIP stage–it’s not even in Beta yet, so it’s nowhere near release–then you can with your V6 license. The upgrade will cost not very much.
McNeel never talks about release schedules until a few days or maybe weeks before the release. Since V2 new versions have been released every 5 to 6 years which suggests it will be several years before V7 is released.
