its good to see that rhino is still generating this kind of interest :thumbsup:

there are no worries for Rhino.

It's too entrenched in the Engineering and Naval Achitecture fields to ever go away.

are they working on an updated version of rhino? rhino 3.0?

08 August 2002, 12:56 AM
pretty sure they are... they can afford to take it slow, however...

I guess I should check the NG and find out what's up over there :D

yah, it looks like the Rhino crowd is all buzzed about V3... and some of the codewarriors have dissapeard of the NG, so they must be busy...

hey grey:

i am glad you said something about rhino 3.

because i am downloading the beta right now, :P i hope you get the chance to download it.

its at: (well thats the site, i think.)

and you need a valid 2.0 cd key.

am aware.

I didn't participate in the Rhino 2.0 beta either, though I did both the 1.0 and the 1.1 betas.

I may do this one... (not sure yet). As a Rhino 1.1 user my upgrade to Rhino 2.0 was free... (nice gift from McNeel)
