LightWave 6.5 Coming to OS X
NewTek to release preview today, mirror on Creative Mac

Chuck Baker, NewTek's director of customer service and support, told us that the company will release a preview of LightWave 6.5 for OS X today.

"This will be a preview release only, as OS X, from Apple, is still in beta," Baker said. "NewTek will not support this release, as it is a preview; we are simply making it available for use. There will be a note to this effect on the download page."

Baker said he was uncertain about which features would be available in the preview release but that the final version would have all the features of the Mac OS 9.x version and "probably more." We'll add information to this story as it becomes available. Meanwhile, we will be mirroring the OS X release on Creative Mac's download area, so check back today at http://www.creativemac.com/downloads/downloads.htm. (We will also post notice on the Creative Mac home page when the download becomes available. Typically, NewTek posts its releases in the late afternoon.)
