Actually, we've started to work on Zebra3, that's true. Because we're not Apple and we're too excited to keep it a secret, we came up with a devlish incentive to still get Zebra2:
  • Price for Zebra2: 199$
  • Price for Zebra3: 249$
  • Upgrade V2->V3: 30$
  • Upgrade from Zebra2 + The Dark Zebra: Free
So, hehe, it really makes a lot of sense to get Zebra2 first. For one thing it's cheaper to upgrade. And then, you have access to a few thousand presets in Zebra2 which may or may not be ported to Zebra3.

Just a note: While ZebraHZ (the "upgrade" coming with The Dark Zebra) has Diva's filters, Zebra3 won't have the exact same ones.

More facts once we know them.

Cheers,

;) Urs

P.S.: The term "started to work on" certainly means at least 6 months until we'll see anything!

*addendum: While we probably won't sell Zebra2 anymore, we will still support it for a long time. Just like we still have working builds of Zebra1 and MFM1 to ensure that people who have those can still open their projects today.

Exciting news for sure! I was hoping for Bazille before Zebra 3, but who am I to complain! :D

We'll see what's quicker. All ongoing projects share a lot of common grounds, development wise.

The reason to post this thread is because we get a lot of questions regarding Zebra2 upgrade paths to Zebra3. We simply needed to clear up that Zebra2 is still "worth buying". I mean, it absolutely is!

Cheers,

;) Urs

I may well be willing to pay extra for an 'init' button :hug:

Im guessing that since Zebra 3 will not necessarily include the same filters that Zebra HZ contains, that anyone who owns Zebra HZ will maintain access to the Dark Zebra filters even after upgrading to Zebra 3?
Who is "I"? What is "I"? This has yet to be explained.

Doesn't he have to be typing to be coding? If he quit typing, wouldn't it delay the release by exactly the amount of time he wasn't typing?
The trick is to realize there is no spoon. That's when you'll know you have been truly swindled.
