Can I have a question... What's that "fish eye lens" in the Pro export features? Is it true 360 degree panorama or "just" wider than what we've had so far?

For now it is only 4 we will add more in future 2.x releases. We will send the Ultimate 2.x to Pro 2.x offer tomorrow. There is a lot of written material we have been working hard on to finish.

See this as the early release you can use with all the news tomorrow.
