Sorry for the confusion. The release is in November. The current prices are early bird discount prices. Essentially it is a preorder for reduced price. It does however mean you will get an email the second it becomes available so you will probably be one of the first to download the new version. You can also see this information on this page: http://lumion3d.com/upgrade

I moved a large section of this thread to general discussion because it was largely turning into a discussion about desired features.
http://lumion3d.com/forum/general-discussion/wishes-for-future-lumion-versions/

Note: If you are a licensed user you can add suggestions to the wish list topic. We keep track of all the things people want so this is one of the best places to place suggestions. http://lumion3d.com/forum/new-features-wish-list/

Lumion 3.0 functionality is pretty much fixed now so the discussion is not really relevant for this thread. If you have any questions about the new functions or Lumion 3.0 in general feel free to ask :D

Let's keep this topic about this page from now on:
http://lumion3d.com/lumion-3.0-preview

The latest addition was a post about the new global illumination in Lumion 3.0.

In the real world light bounces of surfaces which allows you to light scenes with indirect lighting. In Lumion 3.0 we have a simple approximation of this which quickly allows you to improve lighting of your scenes.

The new Global illumination works for lighting from the sun and lighting from spot lights. It's a fast function so it won't add too much to your render times. We hear from our customers that the rendering speed is one of the things they like best about Lumion so we wanted something fast. You won't be able to get the same lighting quality as programs like Vray but then again the reward is the high rendering speed. Later I will post some more movies and screenshots about GI on the blog so you can see it in more detail.

Hi Remko
I'm very excited to see the new GI feature! Can't wait!!
One question though, will there be any need for me to upgrade my video card because of this new feature? I'm currently running a GEFORCE GTX 560M with 3gb. Thank you.

Hi 3D_Bard, it should not be necessary to upgrade your 560M card.

Realtime GI is good news indeed :)

Remko, I agree that the speed is a priority, at least for me it is, but that doesn't mean visuals must be compromised. Even a rough GI sampling will give much quality to the images, I don't think it is so much a bout every pixel getting the correct ray as to have the overall big chunks of light correctly computed.

One analogy would be an impressionistic rough painting style of a fine artist, no pixel accuracy, but the overall impression of the painting, the big brush strokes.

Geomerics Enlighten is used in FrostBite, and it looks great, and it is a very rough sampling. Cryengine also use a very rough approximation, but it is enough, because the speed gives the artist a better framework into making the image great, instead of waiting for the machine.

Looking forward to see more of the GI.

Regards
