How many more service packs before the Big No.2?

I know this is a provocative question: ;)  but how any service packs do you expect to be released before the end of the year, i.e. when we can expect Lumion V.2 to come out?

I just wanted to clarify that as Newbie I am very happy and satisfied with my new commerical licence, and the question here is just to satisfy my curiosity.  I am pretty sure a lot of work goes into each of the service packs, so I can imagine this is a timely and somes frequently frustrating process for the programmers, producing each SP.  

Just so you understand wher my curiosity comes from.  One of the 'risks' I had to make a decision on, is went to jump on board to purchase Lumion. In the past I purchased Antics3D, very shortly after this, the company when insolvent, and those of us who purchase late, paid the cost of redundant software, including no more Activation.  :-[  

The relevance of this is not fear Act-3 will go insolvent, but more whether I would have been better to wait until Lumion V.2 would be issued, and take advantage of the future SPs.  I guess we all take risk in purchasing software now-adays with timing, and a commercially competitive market.

Anyway, my hats off to you guys in making a great piece of software.

We're busy working on Lumion 2.0 now, so there won't be any new Service Packs until after 2.0 is released.

Ferry is however working on SP2 Build 8 right now. This update will address bugs and a couple of small new features (nothing major, so don't get too excited :)).

Thanks for this Morten.  I guess I'll enjoy the last SP, and look forward to V.2 when it comes out.

They might not know either   :)

They say it only took God 7 days and 7 nights to create the heavens and earth.
What was GOD thinking, taking that long.

Toooo bad the LUMION TEAM are only mere mortals and not SPARTANS!
300 - this is sparta
