Like a well esteemed colleague of mine said on another forum: "Those who tell don't know and those who know don't tell" (due to NDAs). Now everybody stay calm and relax. You will know when Adobe decide to release it and not a moment before. That's always been there policy.

Nothing but in my view unrealistic rumours for the most part.

they are working on this one for a long time now...

How do you know? They could decide just the other day to completely pull out of that market and do nothing. You may suspect that for reasons of maintaining their user base (and resulting influx of money) they would work on a new version, but you can't be sure.

Here's the latest I've seen:
http://www.macromedia.com/macromedia/events/max/max2005/video/
click "Day Two", then the fourth video from the left.

This was at Macromedia MAX 2005 (October 18). Since Adobe owns Macromedia's products now, we will likely see a lot of integration. AE + Flash will be a good combo.

I also hear rumors that AE7 will be released mid-to-late January. I can't substantiate that at all, however. Earlier it was rumored for 4Q 2005. We will see.

if this is it... no floating toolbars is an improvement... the rest of the layout has'nt much changed though.

Iím not allowed to say when it will hit the streets, but if you are in the L.A. area this event might be of interest

Happy Holidays!

Looks like Giles Baker might be showing/announcing new version of Premiere Pro(2.0) as well. What other reason would he be there.

HOLY CRAP!! That looks the real deal. One thing I love about Adobe is that their upgrade prices are actually pretty resonable, about $200 each.

Saw this over at mograph.net, not too many readily apparent knockout features, but speed improvement alone would satisfy me. Some of the bullet points are:



new Graph Editor (we all expected that)
32-bit HDR color support
Adobe Dynamic Link
new OpenGL acceleration
Timewarp for speeding up/slowing down footage (I'm holding off on buying Twixtor b/c of that)
maybe a new tracking/masking tool available only in Pro version (maybe the result of licensing CuriousGFX's tech?)
FLV support

atleast the 3d envirement and particle system should been heavily improved... otherwise there is no need of bringing out an newer version... faster rendering is no reason to buy this new toy
