Good one. *Never gave it too much thought, but if you put it that way, it does make sense.

So whats the problem ? In 3 month will see a new update with probably new things.*

Inteactive Grooming and Mash weren´t Maya 2017 updates.... Those features were introduced completly with Maya 2017 release as new features for this new version including several new features on animation.

Not something that was added latter as updates... mostly this updates had an impact on Arnold, wich ended on version 5, so radically.... but no new features as updates during the hole year after Maya 2017 was released

@bloops compared to before they keep adding thing here and there as we go, new modifiers for the interactive grooming, new mash nodes world, palcer. New tension deformer etc and of course the UV editor was a big part.*

So yes there is new features on top of existing things that's*the definition of updates.*

Thanks, you make my point, Mash wasn´t an "update" for Maya 2017.*

Interactive grooming was already part of Maya 2017 when it was released and of course it was fixed on update 3, but it was presented with Maya 2017 on July 2016, not 3 months ago with update 3...LOL, here to prove it, just watch it on this youtube tutorial on the same date of Maya 2017 release "July 2016":

XGen Interactive Grooming - Overview (video of July 25, 2016)

Both points proved, Maya 2017 had not any noteworthy updates but fixes and Arnold 5.

No. Simply wrong information.
