It's somthing like Deep Shadow Map (Renderman), just slower than normal depth map shadow, much faster than raytraced one.
maya must use raytrace to get volume shadow, maya never follow these very useful but tiny techniques
No exciting techniques comes from maya after fluid effects(maya 4.5, God ,almost 6 years ?)

Yeah, nCloth wasn't exciting or anything. And quite frankly that render doesn't impress. We need improvements in Fluids for sure but to come and say nothing exciting comes from Maya for 6 years is a stretch.

Thats debatable, nCloth is pretty awesome not to mention the nucleus solver as well. Perhaps its mentalRay that needs the boot up the proverbial.
