Reading this post about how Mac users are experiencing some problems with the last release of that Rhino version, I’ve remembered some awkward feelings about Rhino final releases along time (I don’t now if the released Mac version is final or not, but it brought back that thoughts).
It’s clear that every new Rhino release (even the SR packages) bring us exciting new tools, but I’ve never seen a discussion about what those Rhino final releases leaved in the development process.
I remember how slow became RH4 after his final release date. I remember using the Beta with no issues and with very good framerate, and when the final version was released, everything slowed down a lot… My PC died some months later and with the new one everything was fast again, but I cannot forget how that final release spoilt the overall rhino performance. I reported it, but no solution came from that report.
With Rh5 I hadn’t the same issues. But another annoying thing happened. Why that amazing new logo design (the one with the Rhino eye) was dropped? It was refreshing, simpler, stylised, easier to compose with,…
It seams that beta versions will always leave behind some good sensations when the final release replace them. What Rh06 final release will bring us?..or must I say “take from us”?
